The Los Alamos softball was looking for a win in the Wednesday, April 12, game against the Capital Jaguars, and were not disappointed. The game started out with a grand slam over the fence home run in the first inning by the short stop Lauren Harris. At the end of the first inning the score was 5-0, and it only got better. In the third inning, the 'Toppers put five runs on the board to bring the score to 15-2. The game was over in the fifth inning due to the mercy rule. This win puts the 'Topper’s in a very good position to win the district title.
