Boys track and field: LA takes fourth at Harper

-A A +A
By The Staff

In its last biggest test of the regular season before the state Class AAAA meet, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team took fourth place.

Los Alamos finished with 55 points in the team standings at this weekend’s Richard Harper Memorial Invitational, hosted by Albuquerque Academy.

With neither Los Alamos nor Academy tipping its hand much to the other this weekend — both teams pulled some of their top contenders in their top events — Academy’s Chargers finished in third place, scoring 62 team points.

As has been the case for most seasons this past decade, Los Alamos and Academy are likey to battle it out for Class AAAA supremacy at the state meet, now less than three weeks away.

Hilltopper head coach Larry Baca said he thought some of the injuries his athletes had suffered in recent weeks appear to be healing just fine, most notably those to Raul Rodriguez and David Bjorklund, both of whom strained hamstrings at the Los Alamos Quad two weeks prior.

Both had limited activity at the Harper Invitational, with Rodriguez competing in only the 400 and Bjorklund only going in the 400 and the 1600 relay.

Standout sprinter Jason Reagor was also on limited duty this weekend, sitting out both the 100 and 200 opens.
