LAHS gets back to action after tough tourneys

-A A +A

After facing tough teams in tournament play over the weekend, the Los Alamos High School basketball teams return to regular season action this week hoping the experience gained carries over moving forward.

In the Roswell Poe Corn Tournament, the LAHS boys took home seventh place. The team lost its opening round game to Goddard 67-56, and fell in a tight battle against Fort Sumner 60-55. The team got back on track, though, in the final game of the tournament, taking down Bloomfield 61-54.

Heading into the tournament, head coach Mike Kluk said he was looking for improved offensive production from his team in the tournament. With three performances of more than 50 points, it appears the Hilltoppers are heading in the right direction. The emergence of junior Gavin Campos has been important for the team as he continues to be the team’s leading scorer.

Now more than 10 games into the season, players are settling into their roles and continue to improve. This week, LAHS will get back to action on the road against Belen at 7 p.m. Saturday Belen, the defending Class 5A state champion, has struggled throughout the early part of the season, and currently has a record of 5-6.

In the Grants Tournament Dec. 20-22, the Eagles took home fourth place. After defeating Kirtland Central 66-53 in the first round, Belen lost to Miyamura and Capital.
