By The Staff

Runners from the Los Alamos Hilltopper cross country boys and girls teams took first place in both races at Saturday’s La Cueva scrimmage.

Holly Walker of Los Alamos set the pace in Saturday’s girls race, winning the contest in 20 minutes, 16 seconds. Walker is returning for her senior season in 2009.

Meanwhile, Senior Kyle Pittman earned the victory in the boys race Saturday with his time of 16:21. Pittman is the top returner for the Hilltopper boys and one of the top runners in the state.

Both the Hilltopper boys and girls teams will open the 2009 season Saturday at the University of New Mexico Invitational. That race will be held at UNM’s North Golf Course in Albuquerque.

In the girls race Saturday, one of Walker’s closest competitors was teammate Victoria Honnell, who finished third overall, seven seconds behind.

For Los Alamos, five runners placed in the top 10 individually.

Because Saturday’s meet was a scrimmage, no team scores were kept.

In the boys race, the Hilltoppers put four runners into the top five and seven runners in the top 10. Tim Wermer, Alexander Romero and Daniel Roybal finished 3-4-5 in Saturday’s race.

Here are Los Alamos’ results from Saturday’s La Cueva cross country scrimmage meet.
