The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls swimming and diving team will be represented in each event at this season’s state championship meet.
And Los Alamos is hoping a big contingent will lead to big results this weekend.
The Hilltoppers have at least one and, more often, two swimmers or more in each event, along with two qualifying divers for the meet, which starts Friday and continues through Saturday at Albuquerque Academy’s Natatorium.
Meanwhile, Los Alamos’ boys have qualifiers in all but two swimming events. The Hilltoppers also boast the No. 2 seed in the 500-yard freestyle with Michael Moore’s entry time just a little over a tenth of a second behind top-seeded Luis Felipe Conejo of Rio Rancho.
This will be the first contingent of Hilltopper athletes led to state by Stu Corliss. Corliss got the head coaching job at Los Alamos last summer, taking over for Rusty Bernstein.
At last season’s state meet, the Hilltopper girls finished sixth overall, earning 170.5 points, while the Hilltopper boys wee 10th with 96.5 points.
The winners in both team competitions last season was Eldorado. The Eagles were dominant on the girls side and nipped La Cueva for the boys title by just three points, one of the closest finishes in state meet history.
