ALBUQUERQUE — So far, so good.In its 2007-08 season opener, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams collectively took home top honors at Saturday’s Peter Barney Memorial Relays. Saturday’s relay event, held at Albuquerque Academy’s Natatorium, consisted of some of the top-finishing schools in the state last season.The win wasn’t something the team was expecting, especially considering the Hilltopper boys had to pull out of three events because they had no one to swim them and had to make several other personnel adjustments.“I was very happy with the results,” Los Alamos head coach Bev Leasure said. “I gave a couple of seniors on the C-Team a chance to swim, another swimmer volunteered to give a C-Teamer his spot in one of the relays. We were trying to give people some opportunities to swim…I’m very happy with the times.”The win wasn’t even something the Hilltoppers were necessarily shooting for Saturday. Of primary importance was gauging how much work would need to be done in order to pick up some state qualifying times.In many cases, there isn’t much.All four girls in the 400-yard medley relay swam a sub-qualifying split, and three of the four boys in that 400 medley did likewise.
