The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team won big at the District 2-4A championship meet and placed 12 new qualifiers into state.
Los Alamos earned 198 team points at the meet this weekend, held in Bernalillo, more than twice as many as Santa Fe, which finished as the runner-up. Los Alamos picked up district titles in nine different events at the two-day meet.
The Hilltoppers will now advance to the state 4A meet, which starts Friday in Albuquerque.
The win at the district meet kept the Hilltoppers undefeated 2-4A streak alive. The Hilltoppers have won 12 straight district titles since joining 2-4A in 2000 and 19 straight district titles overall.
Los Alamos head coach Rob Hipwood, guiding the track and field team for the first season, noted several big performances to finish the 2011 regular season, including the dozen new state placers — individuals who finish in the top two in each event get a bid into the state meet.
