    If there had been any doubt as to the ultimate outcome of this season’s District 2AAAA boys tennis competition, Tuesday probably squelched that doubt for good.

    Los Alamos gave up just six games in Nos. 1-4 singles Tuesday and just four games in the three doubles contests to come away with a big 9-0 victory.

    The Hilltoppers came away with a 5-4 victory Tuesday at home, but the Tigers aren’t ready to concede anything to the Hilltoppers as the District 2AAAA tournament inches closer.
