ALBUQUERQUE — In the second meeting between the two biggest rivals in Class 4A, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers grabbed a solid win.
Los Alamos traveled south to take on Academy and the rest of the field at the Academy Invitational. Los Alamos finished fourth in team competition with 129 points, while the Chargers nipped the Cleveland Storm for Friday’s team title.
The top finisher for the Hilltoppers Friday was Sean Reardon. Reardon, who stuck right with the top runners through more than half the race, wound up finishing seventh overall.
Individually, Cleveland’s Luis Martinez took a near wire-to-wire victory. His time of 15 minutes, 43 seconds was more than 30 seconds better than Rio Rancho’s Ryan Betty, the race’s runner-up.
Despite a fast start, Reardon was among the lead group chasing Martinez at the midway point of the 3.03-mile course.
Unfortunately, right behind Reardon was a tight pack of Academy runners, Andy Eras, Ethan Long and Ryan Lesansee. Those three would also finish as a group, taking the 10-12 slots, with just slightly more than a two-second spread between them.
