Girls track and field: LA dominates rest of field Saturday

By The Staff

As has been the case for much of the season so far, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team earned an impressive victory Saturday.

Los Alamos won a whopping 12 events as it took the team title going away at Saturday’s Capital City Invitational. Los Alamos finished with 209 team points, a better total than the next four schools in the final team standings combined.

Along the way, a pair of Los Alamos hurdlers had big outings. In the 100 meter hurdles, Laura Wendelberger broke the school’s freshman record with her time of 16.65, while in the 300 hurdles, Sylvia Holland earned not only a victory but a state qualifying mark with her time of 48.99.

Wendelberger and Amy Neal now both have their names in the school’s freshman record book. Neal earned her freshman mark in the 400 meters Saturday, winning the event with a time of 1:00.04 and earning a ticket to the state Class AAAA meet as well.

Hilltopper head coach Paul Anderson said the goal of his team is to just improve a little bit each week as the season wears on.

The Hilltoppers, who were tied with Albuquerque Academy in the first track and field poll of the season — the poll was released Wednesday — has generally been able to accomplish that throughout 2010.
