Boys track and field: LA wins big in to close out season

-A A +A
By The Staff

Despite miserable conditions Friday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team still managed to pick up a victory at home.

The Hilltopper boys grabbed 110 team points to finish well ahead of the competition at Friday’s Los Alamos Invitational. The meet was the finale of the regular season for the Hilltoppers.

Los Alamos earned 25 personal best marks at the event despite prevalent winds that hit 40 mph at Sullivan Field.

Leading the Hilltopers’ effort again was hurdler Charles Rappe. Rappe picked up victories in both the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles to help secure the victory.

At Friday’s meet, Los Alamos’ Spencer Schoonover also earned a trip to the state Class AAAA championship meet — scheduled for May 7-8 — with his win in the javelin. Schoonover finished with a toss of 160 feet even to earn trip to state.

En route to the team win — which Los Alamos earned with many of its top performers sitting out and with several events nixed due to the weather conditions — the Hilltoppers held on to beat the Santa Fe Demons, a Class 5A team now but a program that will join the Hilltoppers in District 2AAAA next season.

Los Alamos will be seeking its 18th consecutive district title at home this week when it hosts the 2AAAA championship meet.
