Matt Frye was the top finisher in the season-opening golf tournament for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers Monday.
Los Alamos’ boys and girls hosted their home invitational at Los Alamos Golf Course with teams from around the area competing.
In addition to having their first tournament of the fall season, Monday was also the debut of new Los Alamos boys golf coach Andy Ainsworth, who takes over this season for Ann Stewart.
Frye finished the tournament shooting an 86, which was one shot better than teammate Jonnie Osden and two strokes better than Sean Rau.
The Hilltopper boys didn’t earn any state qualifications in their opener — teams and individuals must hit target scores to earn “legs” toward state tournament entry. The Hilltopper team didn’t make the state Class 4A postseason last year and only one individual, then-senior Raul Roybal, earned an invitation to May’s championship.
Los Alamos’ girls did make it to the state tournament, finishing seventh overall.
Monday, the Hilltopper girls finished with a team score of 413. They finished behind Bosque School, which finished with a tournament-best 354, with Sarah Greene shooting a 2-over 74 and Nicole Spence a 5-over 77 to pace all comers.
