Atomic City Update: Hilltopper athletes rewarded with spots on all-star teams

-A A +A
By Phil Scherer

All year, I have been aware of how great some of the individual athletes are at Los Alamos High School and now it’s great to see people around the state acknowledging that as well. 

Two athletes apiece from the volleyball, softball and baseball teams were named All Stars this week by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association. This is one of the top honors a high school senior athlete can earn in this state, and it allows them a chance to play in the all-star games over the next couple of weeks. 

The players chosen for these honors are Arthur Steinkamp and Antonio Gonzales from the baseball team, Alicia Gonzales and Janessa Gonzales from the softball team and Sophia Salazar and Elodie Thelliez from the volleyball team. 

These honors are more special than even all-state honors because with the all-star teams, you are competing against all the other student athletes from big schools around the northern part of the state for very few spots. 

It’s an honor for a school to have anyone invited, let alone six kids total. This is a high bar for next year’s kids to live up to, but I’m sure they are up to the challenge.
