Los Alamos High School cross country coach Rob Hipwood has received another big honor for his collegiate career.

Hipwood was named to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference All-Time Men’s Cross Country Team.

The All-Time RMAC teams were chosen in honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the conference. RMAC celebrated its 100th birthday in March and is the fourth-oldest collegiate athletic conference in the country.

Hipwood was a national champion cross country runner for Adams State College (Alamosa, Colo.) during the mid 1980s.

Adams State joined the RMAC in 1956.

During Hipwood’s collegiate career, which spanned from 1983-1986, he was a three-time All-Conference selection. He won the conference individual championship in 1984 and helped ASC to four National Association of Intercollegiate Athletic team championships.

In 1985, Hipwood won the NAIA individual cross country championship.

ASC dominated the selections for RMAC’s men’s team with 10 spots on the 12-man team. The other two runners were from Western State.

One of Hipwood’s teammates on the 1986 national championship squad, Rick Robirds, was also an All-Time selection.

In 2007, Hipwood was named to the ASC Hall of Fame for his success with the Grizzlies.
