The Los Alamos Hillltopper girls golf team shaved 33 strokes off its total earlier this week at Thursday's Bernalillo Invitational.

Emma Stearns broke 100 at the invitational, held at Cochiti Golf Course Thursday. Stearns and Aislinn McDonald both finished with 97s to lead the Hilltopper girls, who finished in the runner-up spot behind Cleveland High School for the second time in as many tournaments.

In boys competition, Los Aamos finished with 386 strokes, three shots better than its performance at Monday's Los Alamos Invitational. Raul Roybal led the way with an 86.

The tournament was won by Cleveland on the girls side and Hope Christian on the boys. Cleveland's Dominique Galloway, an eighth grader, shot a 78 to earn individual honors.

Despite the Cochiti Lake area being hit hard during the Las Conchas Fire this summer, Los Alamos head coach Mike Lippiatt said conditions at the golf course could hardly have been better Thursday.
