Track and field: LA girls still have lots of talent returning, boys finish strong

By Mike Cote

ALBUQUERQUE — Regardless of whether it continues, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team’s domination at the state level has been quite remarkable.
Los Alamos has been a major player in anything running related for much of its history, but it may be some time before anyone, perhaps even the school itself, will be able to repeat its current success.
Saturday, the Hilltoppers earned their fourth consecutive state Class 4A title, the longest such streak of team championships since the Albuquerque Academy Chargers pulled off a four-in-a-row streak between 2005-2008. It is the fourth time in state history a team has won four straight titles – interestingly, three of them occurred in the last decade, with St. Michael’s grabbing four girls titles in a row between 2004-2007.
Interestingly, the reason for the recent success has been a fairly simple one, as noted by Chase Ealey, one of the most decorated track and field athletes in the history of the school.
“I really want to win all my running events individually, the (400 meter relay), but I want to win as a team really bad,” said Ealey in her quest to repeat as the Class 4A high-point athlete this year.
