LA teams roll to two more 2-4A wins

SANTA FE – Another District 2-4A meet, another big victory for the Los Alamos Hilltopper cross country teams.
The Hilltoppers, as they have done for 13 previous year, dominated the district championship meet Friday afternoon at Capital High School. The Hilltopper girls scored 17 points en route to their 14th consecutive 2-4A title, while the Hilltopper boys finished with 20 points to earn the sweep.
While Los Alamos has thoroughly dominated the district in recent years – rarely do teams get any closer than double Los Alamos’ point total – this is a race the teams don’t take lightly, as it is the only meet that qualifies them for the state championship race.
“We feel pretty confident, but we were careful not to be overconfident,” said Hilltopper Amanda Mercer, who, along with winning the individual 2-4A girls title, was helping teammate Maddy Foley put ice on her knee after the race.
Mercer led a solid pack of Hilltoppers to the finish line Friday along the sandy, groove- and rock-filled course behind the campus of Capital High. Mercer, Talia Dreicer and Foley finished 1-2-3 in the race, with Mercer finishing in a time of 20 minutes, 7 seconds and Dreicer finishing 13 seconds behind her.
