LA tops Capital, finishes 2-4A season undefeated

The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team closed out its regular season with a big win over the Capital Jaguars.
Los Alamos earned a 13-1 victory over the Jaguars Wednesday at Bomber Field. That victory gave the Hilltoppers 20 wins on the season and gave them a spotless 12-0 record in District 2-4A this year.
Los Alamos earned the district title with its sweep Saturday over the Española Valley Sundevils to clinch its sixth consecutive district title and a spot in the Class 4A postseason. The brackets for the upcoming playoffs will be released Sunday and the first round best-of-3 series will be played May 9-10 — the Hilltoppers will most likely host that first round series.
Capital, which has struggled all season, slips to 4-19 and 0-10 in 2-4A. The Jaguars finish up in a doubleheader Saturday against Santa Fe.

Track teams will be at home Friday

Los Alamos’ track and field teams will host their regular season finales Friday at Sullivan Field.
Teams from Santa Fe, Capital, Española Valley and St. Michael’s are expected to attend Friday’s meet. Following that meet, the Hilltopper teams will host the District 2-4A championships next weekend.
Their last time out, the Hilltopper boys finished sixth — that was at the Richard Harper Memorial Invitational — and the Hilltopper girls were seventh in team competition.
Friday’s meet will be the first time the teams have been at home in 2014.

Cinco de Mayo golf tourney is Saturday

Los Alamos Golf Course will host a Cinco de Mayo tournament Saturday.
The tournament is two-player, scotch format play, except for the fifth hole, which is a worst ball scramble.
A 9 a.m. shotgun start is scheduled. Following the conclusion of play, there will be a taco bar and drinks available.
For more information, call the LAGC at 662-8139.
