’Topper boys place 4th in team standing

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

ALBUQUERQUE – Despite having a relatively small contingent in the Class 4A track and field meet, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys were in contention the entire way for a trophy.
Los Alamos, which pulled out a state title in the final event of the state championship, the 1600 meter relay, finished with 38 points, just one point behind third-place finisher Piedra Vista.
The Hilltoppers overachieved in several events to put themselves in contention and picked up a pair of state event titles along the way.
The Albuquerque Academy Chargers picked up the team victory. In an unusually low-scoring meet, the Chargers earned 55 points, not a whopping total but enough to top runner-up Bloomfield by 13 points.
The highlight for the Hilltoppers at the state meet, however, was the performance of their individuals under the brightest light in New Mexico.
Hitting his stride in 2012 was junior Sean Reardon. Reardon had the performance of the meet for the Hilltoppers in Saturday’s 1600 meter final.
Facing a familiar foe in Del Norte’s Jackson Thomas, Reardon ran a blistering final lap, passing Thomas with about 310 meters to go and won the contest going away.
Reardon won the state title in the event with his time of 4:23.51.
While he was ecstatic with the victory, Reardon said it didn’t come without a price.
