LA boys, girls head into 4A title meet Saturday

-A A +A
By The Staff

As is usually the case, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and Albuquerque Academy Chargers will be the favorites on both the boys and girls sides of the Class AAAA cross country championship meet.

The AAAA title races are scheduled for Saturday at Rio Rancho High School.

Both Los Alamos teams should be the mix for a trophy Saturday, but both will have to contend with the Chargers, who will go in as favorites in both races, although they will only be slight favorites in the girls title race.

Los Alamos’ teams secured their spots in the AAAA championship meet last week, demolishing the rest of the field in the District 2AAAA meet. The Hilltopper boys placed five runners in the top six individually at the district meet to score 18 points, while the Hilltopper girls finished with a perfect score of 15 points, sweeping all of the five top spots.

The Hilltopper girls are looking for their first state team title since 2006, while the Hilltopper boys upset the top-ranked Chargers for the team title in 2007. Academy is the reigning champion in both boys and girls team competition.

On the girls side, Los Alamos has won just one race in five head-to-head meetings with Academy this season. That win, however, was a big one.
