There are still plenty of things to work out for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team.
However, the Hilltoppers have been able to get over some big bumps during this 2011 season, as evidenced by their performance Friday afternoon.
The Hilltoppers overcame an early disqualification in the 400 meter relay Friday and came back against a solid Aztec Tiger team to win the Los Alamos Classic. The Hilltoppers picked up 124 team points, topping the runner-up Tigers’ total of 100. Hope Christian finished in third with 67 points.
Los Alamos had strong performances at the end of the meet to earn the come-from-behind victory.
Daniel Roybal, Nick Hill and Josh Bowman finished 1-2-3 in the 3200 meters, the next-to-last event of the day, while the 1600 relay team, anchored by Andy Thoma, shut down all comers to win the meet’s finale.
Rob Hipwood, Los Alamos’ veteran cross country coach who took the helm of the track and field team this season following the retirement of longtime coach Larry Baca, said he couldn’t have been much happier with the performance, particularly coming off the mid-season lull of the previous week.
