Girls golf: LA in eighth place after opening round at state

-A A +A
By The Staff

Things didn’t start off as the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team had hoped in the first round of the Class AAAA state tournament.

Los Alamos was sitting in eighth-place in team competition following Tuesday’s first round of the tournament, being held at New Mexico Tech Golf Course in Socorro. Today’s second round started at 8 a.m. No information about today’s round was available as of press time.

Heading into the tournament, Los Alamos thought it would have a chance to finish in the top three at state. It will take the Hilltoppers some doing today, however, to have a chance to do that.

The Hilltoppers finished Tuesday’s play with a team score of 400, nearly 50 shots behind the Deming Wildcats.

Deming ran away with the day one honors, shooting a team 352, 23 shots better than Kirtland Central in second place and 25 better than third-place Artesia.

Los Alamos, however, is only 13 shots behind fifth-place Belen, while just five shots separate sixth, seventh and eighth places.

Individually, Hilltopper No. 1 Miranda Olinger shot an 88 Tuesday, placing her within striking distance for a top-three finish individually.

Olinger shot 44s on both the front and back Tuesday. Her day-one score tied her for 12th place overall, but just seven strokes separate the top 12 slots.
