Although it’s barely two meets into the 2007-08 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper swimming and diving clubs already have a lot to be excited about.The Los Alamos boys and girls squads earned solid victories Saturday at the Los Alamos Open, held at the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.More importantly, the Hilltopper boys grabbed seven qualifying marks for February’s state championship meet, and the ’Topper girls swam away with 13 marks.Los Alamos started out at Saturday’s meet very well, but Hilltopper head coach Bev Leasure noticed many of her athletes started to wane as the day went on.“Near the end they tired,” she said. “It showed. They swam well up front, but then they tired.”It wasn’t anything that some extra training won’t cure, however. Leasure said the team will do some heavy conditioning during the upcoming winter break, a time the team refers to as “hell week.”But it was hard to argue with the results at the open, with nine girls teams in contention and eight boys teams.Among the state qualifiers on the girls side were Lydia Wermer, Kara Leasure, Sammi Kao, Natalia Moore, Alexandra Hamada and Alisa Romero.
