The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming teams picked up impressive victories at their home opener of the 2011-12 season Saturday.
The Hilltopper boys grabbed a total of 605 points, more than double the total of their next-near competitor, Los Lunas. Los Alamos’ boys won eight events on the day.
For Los Alamos’ girls, they picked up 484 points to win. Los Lunas was also second in the girls competition with 369 points.
On the girls side, Los Alamos also took top honors in eight races, while the team’s top diver, Amy Neal, picked up a win in Friday’s diving contest.
This weekend’s competition, held at Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center, was Los Alamos’ second meet of the season. Both teams finished in third place at the Barney Relays Nov. 19.
Los Alamos’ girls took each of the top three spots in the 50-yard freestyle. Sydney Schoonover won the race going away, finishing in 27.28 seconds, 1-1/2 seconds better than runner-up Celeste Levy — in the 50 freestyle, a win by more than a few tenths of a second is considered a runaway. Schoonover was also the winner in the 100 freestyle.
