After getting a little bit of time off for finals, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls basketball teams will get back to action this weekend.
Neither Los Alamos team has had a scheduled contest since Saturday, which was the final round of their two tournaments in Albuquerque.
Los Alamos’ boys will host the Rio Grande Ravens Friday night at Griffith Gymnasium. Game time is 7 p.m.
Then, at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, the Hilltopper girls will host Artesia.
This will be the second consecutive year the Hilltoppers and Bulldogs have played each other. Last season, Los Alamos’ last game at the Joe Armijo Invitational in Albuquerque was nixed due to travel conditions, leaving the team scrambling to find another game to fill a hole in its schedule.
The only taker for Los Alamos’ rescheduled game was Artesia, which is in the extreme southeast part of the state. For last season’s game, the two teams split the travel difference and played that contest in Vaughn.
This year, the Bulldogs are making the long trek to Griffith Gymnasium.
So far, the Bulldogs are 4-1 heading into their Friday night contest at Belen. They have wins over two different Class 5A opponents, including having beaten Santa Teresa twice, as well as Moriarty.
