Los Alamos held off the host Santa Fe Demons to win the meet. Ian Pulliam of the Hilltoppers’ 1600-meter relay team held off a late charge in the final event of the day as Los Alamos nipped Santa Fe 85-82.
It was the second win in a row for Los Alamos, which was also a winner at the Los Alamos Classic a week earlier.
For Los Alamos, Jacob Brown won and qualified for state in the triple jump. Brown posted a career-best 42 feet, 8-3/4 inches to earn the win.
Brown became the fifth Hilltopper to punch his ticket to state Saturday. Kory Balog, one of the other Hilltoppers who has earned his trip to the Class 4A meet, was the team’s other event winner in the javelin.
