Hilltopper girls finish second at Grants

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team finished second at the two-day Grants Invitational, which wrapped up Tuesday.

Los Alamos improved 15 strokes on its day one finish, firing a team score of 351 to pick up the runner-up finish. Kirtland Central, a strong contender for the Class AAAA championship this season, won the tournament.

In all, six teams took part in the invitational, which was held at Coyote del Mal Pais Golf Club.

Finishing in the runner-up spot was the team's goal following Monday's first round, in which the Hilltoppers fired a 366 and earned their third qualifying leg for this spring's state tournament, clinching themselves a spot.

Individually, Miranda Olinger, the team's top player, equaled her day one individual total of 83 strokes, while all four other Hilltopper players — Shelby Fellows, Taylor Engleman, Morgan Vaughn and Aislinn McDonald — each shaved strokes off on day two. Fellows and Engleman both broke 90 Tuesday, while Vaughn and McDonald were below triple-digits, where both of them finished in Monday's round.
