By The Staff

Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls golf teams finished in fourth place at Monday’s Farmington Invitational.

The tournament was held at the San Juan Country Club.

The Hilltopper boys finished with 379 total strokes at the tournament, doing so without No. 1 player Thomas Herrera who withdrew from the competition with a back injury.

Meanwhile, the Hilltopper girls shot a 450 Monday.

Winning the girls tournament was Kirtland Central, which posted a team total of 393. On the boys side, Farmington won the team competition with 352 strokes.

Neither Los Alamos team posted a state qualifying mark on the day — there were no qualifying scores of any kind in the boys tournament — and are down to just one chance to qualify for state. That chance will come Friday at the District 2AAAA championship tournament, which will be played at Santa Fe Country Club.

It wasn’t known if Herrera would be able to play in Friday’s 2AAAA tournament.

For Los Alamos’ girls Monday, Taylor Engleman led the team with a score of 110. Following Engleman were Morgan Vaughn (111), Aislinn McDonald (115) and Shelby Fellows (118).

For Los Alamos’ boys, Tim Branch led the team with a 92. Jin Park finished with a 94, followed by Henry Stam (95) and Woody Moss (98).
