When someone says they had a “great day at the track,” they’re not usually talking about track and field.In this case, however, Larry Baca was.Baca, head coach of the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys, saw his squad grab eight new state qualifying marks at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational. Saturday’s meet was held at Wilson Stadium.Los Alamos finished second in team competition in its meet, grabbing 82.33 team points. Class AAAA Cibola won with 106.33 points.“There were a lot of good areas,” Baca said. “You can see the PRs (personal records), and a lot of people were really close to PRs. And anytime you qualify that many, it’s just icing on the cake.”Raul Rodriguez picked up a pair of state marks on Saturday in the 100 and 200 meter events. His 10.99 in the 100 was good for second place and his 22.02 in the 200 put him in third place.In the 100, Rodriguez just edged out teammate Ruben Martinez, who had an 11.01, also a state qualifying time.
