Outstanding performances by Los Alamos High School’s top track and field athletes were rewarded with invitations to appear in a prestigious postseason meet.
Hilltopper athletes earned a total of 10 invitations to appear in the Great Southwest Track and Field Classic, which officially started today at the Great Friends of the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex in Albuquerque. In all, eight Hilltopper female athletes and two male athletes were invited to attend.
The Great Southwest meet is considered the top prep track and field event in the region. Standout athletes from Arizona, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and New Mexico take part in the meet, which will continue through Saturday in Albuquerque.
The local athlete taking on the biggest challenge this weekend is LAHS graduate Lindsay Benage. Benage, the 2009 Class AAAA high jump champion and 2010 high jump runner-up, was scheduled to take part in the girls heptathlon event.
The heptathlon combines seven different events and points are awarded in each event based on finishing mark.
Benage is the second-highest rated New Mexican in the event and 14th overall.
