It’s just about that time.
Los Alamos High School’s fall sports programs are ramping up for the start of the 2014 season. Los Alamos, and the rest of the prep programs in the state, will officially begin football workouts Monday.
Team workouts for football start one week earlier than other fall sports in the state. Official workouts for all other fall high school sports, as well as middle school football, get going Aug. 11.
In order to participate, athletes must have physical examinations completed — those must be done after April 1 — and must fill out the online forms at Los Alamos’ Family ID website. Those must be done before any athlete is allowed to participate in any way.
For the Hilltopper football team, it will start workouts at 8 a.m. Monday at its practice field adjacent to Griffith Gymnasium.
Los Alamos will host a preseason scrimmage against a very good program in Valencia Aug. 22, then open its season in earnest at home against Pojoaque Valley Aug. 29.
In 2013, Los Alamos finished 4-6 overall and 3-1 in District 2-4A, losing the district championship in a tiebreaker to Santa Fe.
