LAS CRUCES — There was little pressure on the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team heading into this week’s Class AAAA championship tournament.

Although the Hilltoppers were among the lowest-ranked teams in AAAA this season, they put together a solid opening round Monday. The Hilltoppers’ opening round score was good enough for seventh place and kept them in the running for a top-three finish this season.

Los Alamos, paced once again by senior Alicia Herrera, posted a total of 399 strokes at the New Mexico State University Golf Course. Los Alamos sits just five strokes back of Piedra Vista and Belen, which finished the opening round tied for fifth and just seven shots behind third-place Farmington.

Deming, the defending Class AAAA champion, took a big step toward a repeat Monday, grabbing a 24-shot lead over its next-closest competitor, Kirtland Central. Deming’s Wildcats had four players finish in the top nine individually, including Cheyenne Molina, who was just one stroke off the lead and Bianca Dominguez, who was just one stroke behind Molina.
