SANTA FE, N.M. — Another win this weekend and the Los Alamos Hilltoppers clinch a second straight state playoffs appearance and their third in four years.
“We’re definitely in the driver’s seat and we should be able to take care of business,” coach Bryan Neal said. When he spoke last week, Los Alamos was sitting alone atop the District 2-4A baseball standings.
The Hilltoppers were 9-1 in district play going into Saturday’s finale, a late doubleheader against Pojoaque Valley. Los Alamos beat second-place Taos 6-2 on Wednesday to take a one-game lead in the district. The Hilltoppers went 2-1 against the Tigers this season to hold the district tiebreaker.
