Going into the season opener, not to mention the first meet of his Los Alamos coaching career, Stuart Corliss wasn’t sure what to expect out of the Hillltopper swim teams.
But he got just about everything he was hoping to.
“I thought they raced,” said Corliss of his teams’ performances in the Peter B. Barney Relays, held Saturday at Albuquerque Academy. “We did really well with our racing. In girls-only, we won three of six races from Academy, and they always come to play.”
Los Alamos girls finished in second place in team competition with a total of 124 points behind Academy, which had 186 points, a score that might have been closer, but the Hilltoppers couldn’t enter the diving competition.
The Barney Relays include, as the name suggests, all relay events, some traditional relays and some non-traditional relays, including mixed boys and girls events like the 400-yard relay, which includes eight 50-yard legs with four boys and four girls competing.
Los Alamos’ boys finished third in team competition behind Academy’s Chargers and Rio Rancho’s Rams.
Teams could qualify for the state meet in traditional relay events and the leadoff swimmers could qualify for state, as well.
In those events, the Hilltoppers did quite well.
