Los Alamos’ Hilltoppers and Albuquerque Academy’s Chargers will face off for the second time during the 2011 cross country season on the Chargers’ home turf.
Los Alamos will take part in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Friday afternoon. The invitational, a mid-sized meet that nonetheless usually boasts a crop of good talent, is run on the dusty trails on Academy’s expansive campus.
The Hilltoppers are perennial competitors at the Academy Invitational. In the 2010 race, the Hilltopper girls finished fourth in the team standings, running without one of their top athletes, Victoria Honnell, while the Hilltopper boys were third overall.
Academy won the 2010 boys team title with a scant 28 points, while La Cueva finished with 84 points in the runner-up spot. Eventual Class 5A champ Eldorado nipped Academy 81-87 to take the girls title.
This will be the second time the two programs have met this season. The Hilltoppers and the Chargers faced off in their season opener, the University of New Mexico Invitational.
At that meet, the Hilltopper girls pulled off a victory, winning by 20 points over runner-up Eldorado, while the Hilltopper boys finished within three points of Academy’s Chargers.
