When bagel flavor is the hot topic of discussion before practice, it’s safe to assume the mood around the Hilltopper boys swim team is loose.Los Alamos’ boys and girls teams will head to the state championship meet for preliminary competition Friday. Finals will be held Saturday at the Albuquerque Academy Natatorium.Prior to Tuesday’s workout at the Larry R.
