Girls cross country: Mooday rolls to big win Friday

By Mike Cote

In its regular season finale, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team again came through with another solid performance.
The Hilltopper girls hosted the Los Alamos Invitational Friday afternoon at Los Alamos Golf Course. The Hilltoppers grabbed three top 10 individual finishes to coast to victory.
Jennifer Mooday took a near wire-to-wire victory for Los Alamos, while Teresa Sandoval and Jordan Parker finished in seventh and eighth places to lead the team to victory.
Los Alamos finished with 41 points, eight points better than second-place Cleveland.
Despite the victory, however, Friday’s course seemed particularly difficult for the Hilltoppers, along with several other teams involved. A pair of Hilltoppers were among five runners who collapsed at the finish line. Several others stumbled across or needed help getting out of the finishing area.
The race’s course at LAGC is considered a fairly challenging one. Nevertheless, Los Alamos still held off all challengers, including Class 4A opponents Albuquerque Academy and St. Pius X.
Hilltopper Janali Gustafson, who finished 11th overall and fourth among Los Alamos’ competitors, said the team was expecting a big day Friday.
