Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball and softball teams grabbed four first-team slots on the 2008 All-District 2AAAA rosters.

For the Hilltopper baseball team, Zach Mang, Eli Pulliam, Michael Helland and Jeremy Kasik were given first-team All-2AAAA nods.

The Hilltopper softball team placed Megan Burditt, Brianna Radosevich, Ashley Merhege and Stephanie Abney on the first team.
