The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls cross country teams both looked impressive in their preseason scrimmage Saturday.
The Hilltoppers took on La Cueva Saturday in Albuquerque, picking up top finishes in both the boys and girls race. Jennifer Mooday and Sean Reardon paced the rest of the field with Mooday becoming the first runner to win the scrimmage twice in its four-year history.
Hilltopper head coaches Rob and Kathy Hipwood said they were pleased with the beginning of the season, which featured several highlights.
Reardon, who had a monster track and field season for the Hilltoppers in the spring, clocked the third-best time in scrimmage history and was one of seven Hilltoppers who finished in under 18 minutes — Los Alamos had four runners finish in under 18 minutes in 2011.
Also on the boys side, Mike Walker and Aaron Bao earned their first team top-seven finishes in their careers.
For the Hilltopper girls, eight girls finished in under 21 minutes, six more than last season’s scrimmage, including Miranda Barraza, who earned the first top-5 team finish in her career.
Los Alamos will open its 2012 regular season Friday at the University of New Mexico Invitational.
