The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team earned a victory in its final regular season contest and picked up a big state qualifying mark as well.
The Hilltoppers grabbed 132 team points Saturday at the Los Alamos Invitational, picking up the team championship. St. Michael’s was second with 101.5 points and Santa Fe finished third with 74.5.
Los Alamos will go into this week’s District 2-4A meet, which will be hosted by someone other than Los Alamos for the first time since the district was formed in 2000, as the heavy favorites to win another district title. Los Alamos has never been defeated at the district meet since the 2000 realignment.
Saturday, Los Alamos earned a state Class 4A qualification time in the 400 meter relay.
The 400 relay, which has been plagued by poor exchanges this season, posted a time of 43.52, the fourth-best time that has been turned in by a Class 4A team.
At the Los Alamos Invitational, the Hilltoppers won three relay events and five individual titles. Kyle Stephens cleared 6-foot-2, a career best in the high jump, while Daniel Dunning, who was promoted just this week from the junior varsity, won the triple jump with a mark of 39 feet, 4-1/4 inches.
Nate Robbins in discus, Kory Balog in javelin and Andy Thoma in the 200 meters were also winners Saturday.
