The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will be back in action Friday night hosting the Piedra Vista Panthers in an important nondistrict contest.
Despite having won just twice in seven outings this season, the Hilltoppers are still looking to jockey for position in the Class 4A postseason race. Both of the Hilltoppers’ wins this year have come against 4A schools and their only loss to a 4A team was against Los Lunas, a probable top-two team in the postseason, last week at Albuquerque Academy.
However, Piedra Vista (3-3) will be in a similar boat to Los Alamos when the two teams face off at 6 p.m. Friday.
Piedra Vista is 0-2 against 4A competition this season, although in both instances those losses were against Santa Fe, another top-tier squad.
