The Los Alamos High School athletic office announced last week the hiring of a new boys golf coach.
Anders “Andy” Ainsworth will take over the boys golf program from Ann Stewart, who was officially hired earlier this month as the head girls basketball coach.
Ainsworth, who was a volunteer for the Los Alamos Hilltopper golf program during the 2012-13 season, is a math teacher at Los Alamos Middle School. He also has experience at the collegiate level, as he was an assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s program at Western New Mexico University in Silver City between 2008-2010.
Along with his golf experience, he has coached boys and girls basketball at Coronado High School in Gallina and was also an assistant volleyball coach there.
Last season, Los Alamos’ boys didn’t qualify for the state tournament. The team sent one representative, senior Raul Roybal, to state as an individual, where he placed 37th overall with a two-day score of 185.
Ainsworth will be the third head coach for the boys team in three seasons.
Prior to last season, girls coach Mike Lippiatt ran both programs.
