The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams won both ends of Saturday’s quadrangular meet in Albuquerque.
The Hilltopper girls held off a big challenge from the La Cueva Bears Saturday at the Valley Quadrangular, winning by just two points, while the Hilltopper boys earned a solid victory over second-place La Cueva at the meet.
Friday, the Hilltopper girls diving team swept the top four spots in competition at Sandia High School.
Los Alamos’ girls scored 115 points at the event, just enough to hold off La Cueva, which finished as the state team runner-up last season. Los Alamos’ boys grabbed 111 points to La Cueva’s 83.
Valley and Highland also competed at the meet, finishing third and fourth in both the boys and girls competitions.
Hilltopper Alex Baker had another big day in helping the boys squad to a victory Saturday, picking up wins in two individual events and having a hand in both the 200-yard medley relay and 400-yard freestyle relay victories.
Baker grabbed wins in both 200 individual medley (2:07.26) and in the 500 freestyle (5:17.56).
In all, the Hilltopper boys won seven events at the meet.
