The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls cross country squads looked solid in a scrimmage Saturday in Albuquerque.
The Hilltopper boys were the unofficial winners of the scrimmage, which took place at Alameda/Rio Grande Open Spaces.
Los Alamos’ boys placed seven runners in the top nine overall to finish with an unofficial score of 21. Official scores may not be kept at preseason events.
Gareth Gilna and Kyle Pittman took first and second in the boys race on the 3.2-mile course.
The Hilltopper girls, meanwhile, finished with 41 points, unofficially finishing second behind Class AAAAA Rio Rancho.
Holly Walker was the top finisher in Saturday’s girls race, crossing the finish line in 20 minutes, 51 seconds. Victoria Honnell and Ariana Rowberry both made the top 10 individually for the Hilltoppers.
Because of a schedule conflict, Los Alamos won’t make an appearance this season at the Joe I. Vigil Invitational, its traditional opening meet of the season.
Both teams will open at the University of New Mexico Invitational Sept. 6.
Here are Los Alamos’ results from Saturday’s Sandia scrimmage (team results are unofficial).
1. Rio Rancho, 29; 2. Los Alamos, 41; 3. Sandia, 66; 4. Volcano Vista, 147.
