The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team was ranked fifth in the 2008 preseason poll conducted by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.
The Hilltoppers garnered 66 points in the Class AAAA poll, which is voted on by coaches of the various schools. The poll was released this morning.
Artesia, the defending Class AAAA champion, picked up 135 of the possible 140 points to finish first in the NMHSCA poll.
Last season, Los Alamos finished with a record of 9-2. It won its first eight games of the season and finished second in District 2AAAA behind Capital.
