Los Alamos Little League 9, 10 and 11 All Stars made it all the way to the semi finals during the state tournament in Clovis.
“The boys did a great job,” Los Alamos Little League President Magdalen Miller said. “They got fourth out of nine districts (during) the semifinals.”
She explained the team started playing Friday, July 12, against Enchantment Little League from Las Cruces. Los Alamos lost 9-4. This, Miller said, put the team in the “loser’s bracket.”
Saturday, July 13, Los Alamos played against Silver City and won 14-0.
Sunday, July 14, Los Alamos played Taos and won 3-2. Monday, they played Enchantment again and won 7-6. Tuesday, the team played against the Carlsbad Shorthorns and lost 12-1.
Miller said it has been a while since the Little League 9, 10 and 11 All Stars have been this competitive and gotten this far in the state tournament. She said in Northern New Mexico the fields and the weather can put the area teams at a disadvantage to the teams in the Southern part of the state.
Since Southern New Mexico is warmer, its little league teams can start playing earlier.
