Girls track and field: LA earns another big win

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team just keeps right on rolling.

The Hilltopper girls won their fourth straight team competition and fifth in six tries at the Richard Harper Invitational this weekend.

Los Alamos picked up an even 100 team points, easily outdistancing second-place Albuquerque Academy, to win the Harper Invitational, hosted by those same Academy Chargers.

With just one regular season meet remaining before the District 2AAAA championship — Los Alamos will very likely breeze to a district title again this season — the Hilltoppers are doubtlessly the team to beat in Class AAAA right now.

Best of all for Hilltopper head coach Paul Anderson is that when trouble does arise, someone has been there to pick up the slack. This weekend it was Sylvia Holland.

Holland won the 300 meter hurdles with a state qualifying time of 48.82 seconds, then filled in for Hilltopper standout Taylor Ealey in the 1600 relay, running a solid 400 split of 1:02.60, helping that team to a second-place finish.

In all, Los Alamos picked up three top finishes at the two-day event and earned six runner-up spots.

Taylor Ealey won the javelin competition this weekend, while teammate Alex Nichols finished a strong second in the event.
