If there was any lingering doubt about which team was the favorite heading into the Class 4A girls state meet in 2011, that doubt was removed this weekend.
The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls came out on top of a stacked field at this weekend’s Richard A. Harper Invitational. The Harper Invitational, one of the most competitive regular season meets in the state, was hosted by Albuquerque Academy.
The Hilltoppers, again led by Laura Wendelberger and Chase Ealey, picked up 65.5 points, topping a pair of the top Class 5A schools in the state, Eldorado and La Cueva, along the way.
The win immediately cements Los Alamos as the team to beat again at the 4A state meet, which is scheduled for May 13-14. Los Alamos is the two-time defending state champ.
Ealey won three events at the two-day meet. Ealey earned wins in the 100 meters, shot put and javelin to lead the charge for the Hilltoppers.
Teammate Laura Wendelberger, meanwhile, took top honors in the high jump, where she’s the defending state champ, clearing 5 feet, 2 inches.
The high jump ended up being huge for the Hilltoppers in team points, with Chelsea Chalacombe and Lindsay Benage finishing third and fourth in that event.
