Swimming and diving: Toppers head to state after big showing at district meet

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls swimming and diving team could be among the favorites to vie for a state title this weekend after a huge victory Saturday.

Both Hilltopper teams are heading to the state championship meet, which starts with preliminary races Friday. Finals will be held Saturday at Albuquerque Academy’s Natatorium.

At the district championship meet, Los Alamos’ girls grabbed a whopping total of 647 points, well over twice the total of their next closest competitor, St. Michael’s, to earn the district team championship.

While the district meet doesn’t hold any more significance than any other race during the regular season, Los Alamos still had an impressive showing, grabbing seven individual district titles.

The Hilltopper boys, meanwhile, earned three district championships at Saturday’s meet, held at the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center. The Hilltopper boys placed second at the district meet, just one point behind champion St. Michael’s.

Both teams will be well represented at the state meet, with the girls having at least two entries in every individual event and the boys having at least one representative in every event.
