By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team did a little bit of shuffling with its personnel at Saturday’s Rio Rancho Chile Quad.

And everything still turned out just fine.

Los Alamos finished Saturday’s meet, hosted by the Class AAAAA Rams, in second place in the team standings. Los Alamos grabbed 173 points, just four points behind Rio Rancho, while Moriarty finished well behind the pace.

With spring break starting at Los Alamos this week, Hilltopper head coach Paul Anderson said he was able to move several athletes around to various events and still got some good showings on the day.

A pair of throwers, Chase Ealey and Alex Nichols, both picked up qualifying marks at Saturday’s meet. Ealey won the shot put, topping older sister Taylor Ealey, with her state qualifying throw of 36 feet, 2 inches, while Nichols finished second behind Taylor Ealey in the javelin but her throw of 115 feet even was good enough to qualify.

Amelia Weaver became the second Hilltopper on the season to make the cut in the pole vault, tying teammate Catherine Chen’s mark of 8-3 in that event. Chen’s clearing of 8-3 was a season best for her.
