The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team didn’t field a full team or have one of its best season efforts Saturday, although that was tempered with some good performances by its available athletes.
Los Alamos finished with 18 total points at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational, placing it tied for eighth overall in the 18-team field. Class 5A Cibola won the event going away with 107 points, more than half-again the total of its nearest competitor, La Cueva.
The Hilltoppers finished tied with Volcano Vista, another Class AAAA school, in Saturday’s team standings.
Along the way in Saturday’s meet, however, the Hilltoppers had some solid individual efforts.
Kyle Pittman, the top distance runner in the state, won the Michael Prentice Award at the meet by winning the 3,200 meters with a season-best time of 9:39.84.
Also Saturday, Kory Balog qualified for the state Class AAAA championship meet with his javelin toss of 161 feet, 9 inches.
Both Balog and thrower Oliver Funsten made their marks in Los Alamos history Saturday, earning spots on the school’s Top 10 lists in those events. Funsten finished with a discus distance of 141 feet even.
