By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams earned big road wins Saturday.

Taking part in the Farmington Invitational Saturday, the Hilltoppers dominated the rest of the field, including a historically solid Farmington Scorpions program.

Los Alamos’ boys won Saturday’s meet grabbing a healthy total of 558 team points, while the Los Alamos girls picked up 568 points to cruise to a sizeable victory at the meet. St. Michael’s was second, fairly distantly in both the boys and girls competitions Saturday, while the host Scorpions were third on the boys side and fourth in the girls.

Saturday’s meet was actually rescheduled from Jan. 23, when the meet was postponed due to heavy snows in the northern part of the state. The Farmington meet, which is very often a well-attended and highly-competitive meet, attracted only eight teams Saturday.

The Hilltoppers won 10 events at Saturday’s meet, with the girls taking six top honors. The Hilltoppers’ 200-yard freestyle relay ‘B’ team upset its ‘A’ counterpart in that event. The team of Kerry Song, Yuliya Matlashova, Maria Musgrave and Alex Hamada eked out a .32 victory to pull off the upset.
