Golf teams to play at home Monday

-A A +A


The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls golf team will host a rare third home meet of the regular season Monday.

Los Alamos will host a light field of competitors for Monday’s Spring Invitational. Play gets going with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. at Los Alamos Golf Course.

Hilltopper girls head coach Mike Lippiatt said there should be somewhere between seven and nine competing schools at the event, but many of those are likely not to bring a full team of four golfers.

Two weeks ago, Los Alamos’ teams hosted a “warm-up” tournament at LAGC. At that tournament, the Hilltopper girls earned their third qualification score of the year, making them eligible to participate in the Class 4A state championship tournament next month.

At that competition, the Hilltoppers, who won the team title, were paced by Emma Haines, who fired an 86, and Jennifer Necker, who finished with a 91.

On the boys side, Jonathan Osden picked up his second individual state tournament qualifying leg and can punch his ticket to state by repeating that feat Monday. 

Osden finished with a 6-over 78, placing him second in the individual competition.
