ALBUQUERQUE – Things continue to look bright for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team, even when the clouds are rolling in.

Despite thick storm clouds hanging over Wilson Stadium and the Buddy Robertson Invitational late Friday afternoon, Los Alamos still put together a good showing against some tough competition.

In team competition Friday, Los Alamos collected 87 points. While Los Alamos wasn’t able to hang around with either Cibola, the defending Class AAAAA champion which should have a pretty good chance to repeat this season, and Highland, a solid AAAAA squad in its own right, Los Alamos earned a substantial victory over an important competitor.

Albuquerque Academy, one of the elite programs in the state, regardless of classification, finished well behind Los Alamos in team competition Friday. The Chargers finished in fourth place with 65.5 total points.

Cibola, which was in Los Alamos’ grouping for the second straight week, earned the team victory with 120 points, while Highland finished second with 110 points.

“Everybody’s working hard and everybody’s looking good,” Hilltopper sprinter Raul Rodriguez said of his team’s performance Friday.

Rodriguez was no exception.
