For the fall 2011 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls golf teams are keeping their goals attainable.
With heavy losses to graduation off the 2010-11 teams, Los Alamos will be starting several players with little or no varsity experience.
Los Alamos’ teams start their season Monday when they host the Los Alamos Fall Invitational. Tee-off is set for 9 a.m.
Along with some new starters, the Los Alamos boys team will also be under the direction of a new coach. Mike Lippiatt, who led the Hilltopper girls team last year, also takes over the reins of the boys team.
Lippiatt guided the Hilltopper girls to a fifth-place finish at the 2011 championship. The Hilltoppers struggled with their putting during the tournament and were surpassed in day two for fourth place by the Albuquerque Academy Chargers.
Working with 20 golfers instead of eight or nine has presented its challenges for Lippiatt, but he’s put in a system with he and his two assistant coaches to rotate through the driving range, putting green and chipping green so that they can keep an eye on everyone’s progress.
