Los Alamos High School announced Wednesday that Hilltopper swimming coach Rusty Bernstein has resigned.
Bernstein, who was hired following the 2007-08 season, was in charge of both the boys and girls swimming program. An announcement for applications has already been posted on the Los Alamos Public Schools’ website.
Initially, Bernstein was hired as co-head coach of the swimming program along with Cindy Black. The two coaches didn’t apply together, but the program’s swimmers at the time helped convinced the hiring committee co-head coaches were the way to go.
Black vacated her half of the coaching position in 2010 and Bernstein took over as the sole head coach since that time.
This season, Los Alamos advanced 10 boys and 8 girls to the state championship meet. Los Alamos’ girls finished in sixth place with 170.5 points and Los Alamos’ boys ended up in 10th place with 96.5 points.
With Bernstein leading the program, the Hilltopper girls had a runner-up finish at state in 2010 and a third-place finish in 2009. Los Alamos’ boys were third at state in 2009 and fourth in 2010.
Hilltopper athletic director Vicki Nelms was appreciative of the effort Bernstein had given to the program.
