It was one of the crowning moments in the history of Los Alamos High School boys soccer.
In 2010, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers thumped the Belen Eagles in the Class 4A championship game, 4-0, to claim its first state title in 24 years.
But that was then and this is now. With nine seniors, most of them starters, graduating from that team it would seem unlikely the 2011 Hilltoppers will be in the same position to contend.
Or is it? The Hilltoppers don’t seem to think so.
“I feel like we’re confident this year,” Hilltopper Zeke Zumbro said during practice Tuesday as the team preps for its season opener Thursday. “Last year, we were really confident and I feel the same confidence this year.”
