Scenes From Los Alamos Tennis Invite

The Los Alamos tennis teams traveled Friday to Capital High School to host the Los Alamos Invite tennis meet. The event has been played in Santa Fe for a couple of years. It started when the courts in Los Alamos were under construction and has continued today. The boys placed fourth and the girls placed sixth. The tennis teams will have a home meet April 11 at the Mesa and North Road courts. Here, Martin Naud and McKenzie Cook prepare to take the court to play mixed doubles against a team from Las Vegas, N.M. They lost the match 3-8 but it was a good showing  for them.
