Swimming and diving: LA teams pick up wins in Santa Fe Saturday

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams capped off a busy week last week with wins at the Griffin Invitational Saturday.

Both Los Alamos teams took top honors in the meet, held at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center in Santa Fe, finishes that were all the more impressive because the teams were not at full strength and had competed in a big quadrangular meet two days earlier at Albuquerque Academy.

Because the team had a meet earlier last week, the Hilltopper coaching staff gave its athletes the option of just competing at one of the two meets, or both if they were feeling up to it. While some swimmers and divers chose to take on the two meets, many of those were swimming off-events at Santa Fe.

The Hilltoppers are quickly winding down their 2009-10 season. They have just two meets left, the Farmington Invitational — a reschedule from last month that was postponed due to snow — and next week’s two-day District 1 meet, which they will host.

Los Alamos co-head coach Rusty Bernstein said that while he should have a better idea of the teams’ outlooks after rosters are submitted following the district meets, he is cautiously optimistic of both teams having a good showing.
