By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team held off Rio Rancho for a runner-up finish at the Buddy Robertson Invitational Saturday at Milne Stadium.
Despite being short-handed Saturday, the Hilltoppers grabbed 83.5 points, a point better than Rio Rancho, a Class 5A school. Eldorado won the girls competition with 93 points.
On the boys side, Los Alamos finished in third place behind Rio Rancho and Highland. Los Alamos was the only Class 4A entry on the boys side and one of just two 4A teams on the girls side.
The weather conditions were tough Saturday, with gusting wind and cold temperatures throughout the day.
Nevertheless, the Hilltoppers persevered.
For the second week in a row, the Hilltopper boys went 1-2-3 in the 3200 meters, this time with an entirely new lineup. Orion Staples was the winner of the event, finishing in 10:24.96, just a little over one second ahead of Mike Walker, while Daniel Romero was third.
Nick Hill, Los Alamos’ top finisher in the 3200 last week, was the top finisher in the 1600 Saturday, while Sean Reardon won the 800 meter competition. Skyler McCall earned his first win of the season in the high jump, clearing 5 feet, 10 inches.
