LAHS downed by Santa Fe High

Heading into this season, the main concern surrounding the Los Alamos High School girls’ basketball team was its inexperience. With just three seniors on the roster, it was inevitable that girls without much varsity experience would be thrust into important roles.

Tuesday night against Santa Fe High School, the growing pains of the young Hilltoppers were on full display, as LAHS fell 46-35 partially due to an offense still searching for its identity.

Heading into the game, it appeared the Hilltoppers had a bit of momentum. In its previous game, LAHS defeated Valencia High School on the road 54-52, after being down by six points at halftime.

It also appeared that the Hilltoppers were catching Santa Fe High at the right time, as new head coach Cindy Roybal struggled through her first few games leading the Demonettes, with a 1-3 record.

Early on, however, it was clear that Santa Fe High came into the matchup with the Hilltoppers ready to go, and firing on all cylinders.

In this game, LAHS head coach Josh Archuleta inserted senior Katey Green into the starting lineup for junior Alix Hailey.

Just 90 seconds into the game, Green had to be removed after picking up two quick personal fouls. This seemed to disrupt the offensive flow and put the Hilltoppers in an early hole.
