Young Hilltopper basketball team ready to roll

This season, the Los Alamos High School girls’ basketball team is out to prove that the phrase “practice makes perfect” really is true.

After finishing with a disappointing 6-21 record last year under first-year head coach Josh Archuleta, the team instituted an entirely new offseason training regimen.

It was aimed at improving the chemistry of the team and bringing out all of the players’ best qualities on the court.

Archuleta believes that goal was accomplished.

“The strengths on this roster have been proven throughout the summer,” Archuleta said. “We played more than 30 games during the summer, and never stopped working preseason.”

Archuleta believes that the team has a stronger sense of cohesion than last year, and that the results of that have shown on the court in practice this month.

“We are the type of basketball team that is very unselfish,” Archuleta said. “We aren’t prideful in terms of individual pride. We are prideful in terms of team pride. If the team wins, we all win.”

The players seem to share that sentiment, with several of them saying they have a different feeling about this season than in previous years.
