    Jared Mang of Los Alamos was named the District 2-4A Player of the Year for the 2012 baseball season.
    Mang, a sophomore, was selected as the top player in 2-4A this season by the district’s managers. Mang was also the most dominant player in district last year, but was probably passed over for the Player of the Year honor because he was only an eighth grader.
    The Hilltoppers placed five players on the All-District first team this season and put three more on the second team. Additionally, the Hilltoppers’ Mike Gill was named Manager of the Year.
    Los Alamos went 11-1 in 2-4A this season, winning the 2012 district championship.

    The 2012 regular season ended on a high note for the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team. This weekend, the Hilltoppers will find out if they can sustain it.
    Los Alamos will take on the Miyamura Patriots in the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs. Los Alamos, the No. 7 seed in the 4A tournament, has the honor of hosting 10th-seeded Miyamura, a relatively new school in Gallup.
    One of the Hilltoppers’ challenges heading into the series is the fact they’ve been idle for the better part of two weeks. They’ve played just three games since April 21 and all three of those games were against winless Capital, a team they outscored 68-0.
