The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team placed five runners in the top 10 individually to earn a solid victory in the La Cueva Invitational Saturday.
Los Alamos held off three Class 5A schools to take the win in the boys race Saturday. Paced by senior Alexander Romero, the Hilltoppers finished with 25 points, just slightly more than half total of runner-up Volcano Vista.
Only five girls teams and four boys teams took part in the La Cueva Invitational, a departure from last week’s race, the University of New Mexico Invitational, which is one of the biggest meets in the state.
Meanwhile, the Hilltopper girls, without three of their regular starters, finished second at the La Cueva Invitational behind two-time Class 5A champion Eldorado. The Hilltoppers got good efforts from their replacements, however, and stayed within striking distance of the Eagles, who had to come from behind to take a 16-point win.
Three newcomers to the varsity team, Jordan Parker, Elizabeth Turner and Amanda Mercer, set the pace for the Hilltoppers.
