There is no longer a question as to which girls cross country team is the heavyweight champion of New Mexico.
That team is the Los Alamos Hilltoppers. The Hilltoppers cemented that title in 2010 and there’s good reason to believe they can defend that title in 2011.
Los Alamos will open its season Saturday at the University of New Mexico Invitational Saturday morning.
The Hilltoppers picked up a historic win at the 2010 Class 4A state championship meet, earning their 15th team title, breaking a tie with the Gallup Bengals for most titles won by a program in state history.
In 2011, Los Alamos has many of its top runners returning along with several talented runners who have worked their way through the program. Los Alamos could be the deepest team in the state, and by a considerable amount.
“The team is doing really well so far,” Hilltopper Jennifer Mooday said. “We all trained during the summer really well. It just looks good. The season looks good.”
Mooday and veteran runner Teresa Sandoval, both juniors, will lead the team into the UNM Invitational, one of the biggest meets Los Alamos will compete at this season. Following them into this first meet are sophomores Emily Pittman, Jordan Parker, Mikayla Pulliam, Eliana Riciputi and junior Liz Turner.
