Things are still progressing about as expected for the Los Alamos Hilltopper cross country teams as evidenced by their first race of the season Saturday.
The Hilltopper girls finished eighth at Saturday’s University of New Mexico Invitational meet Saturday while the Hilltopper boys took fourth place in team competition. The powerful Academy boys won Saturday’s team title and Academy’s girls finished second behind Chaparral, Colo.
The UNM meet is one of the largest team events in the state. The meet, which is run in conjunction with the Lobos’ collegiate cross country invitational, featured 26 boys prep teams and 22 girls prep teams.
Los Alamos head coaches Rob and Kathy Hipwood liked with they saw Saturday.
“That’s an extremely solid finish at UNM for a bunch of guys with little varsity experience,” Kathy Hipwood said of Los Alamos’ boys. “We thought (the girls) would place higher than that. We feel we’re better than eighth, but we feel confident they’re going to gain more confidence going forward.”
