Los Alamos’ girls soccer team picked up a pair of top postseason honors in District 2-4A and the Hilltopper boys picked up a third this year.

Los Alamos’ Catie McDonald, one of the most prolific goal scorers in Class 4A this season, was named Offensive Player of the Year in 2-4A girls soccer. The postseason honors were released Monday.

Meanwhile, two Hilltopper fullbacks, one for the boys and one for the girls, picked up Defensive Player of the Year honors. Stephanie Blair was the girls 2-4A top defender of 2013, while Brandon Hodges earned the boys 2-4A award.

Los Alamos’ girls were the 2013 district champions and Los Alamos’ boys finished second behind Capital.

Santa Fe’s Keith Richards and Capital’s Eugene Doyle were named Coaches of the Year.
