Swimming and diving: LA girls take 2nd at Academy meet

Albuquerque Academy dominated both sides of its quadrangular swimming and diving meet Wednesday afternoon, which included the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls teams.

The Hilltopper girls finished second behind the host Chargers, picking up 93 team points. The Hilltopper boys, meanwhile, picked up 44 points to take third place behind Academy and Cibola.

Los Alamos, which is trying this week to give some of its athletes a bit of a breather — it has three events scheduled in seven days — only took a handful of swimmers to Wednesday’s meet. Los Alamos’ boys squad didn’t take enough swimmers to fill all of the scheduled events, so it wasn’t expecting a huge team showing.

“We took a small team, but the kids that went did really well,” Hilltopper co-head coach Rusty Bernstein said.

Individually for the Hilltopper boys, Chris Calhoun picked up his first state meet qualification time Wednesday, making the cut in the 500-yard freestyle. Calhoun’s time of 5:26.34 was good enough to earn him his first career trip to the state meet.
