Track and field: LA girls come up big at district meet

-A A +A
By The Staff

Once again, the District 2-4A girls track and field meet turned into a runaway.
The Los Alamos Hilltoppers scored a whopping 240.5 team points, nearly double the total of their next-closest competitor, Santa Fe. Only one other team, Bernalillo, even broke 40 points.
The Hilltoppers won all but three events at the 2-4A meet, held in Bernalillo — the first time since 2000 that it wasn’t held in Los Alamos. In the three events it didn’t win, Los Alamos athletes finished second, assuring the team will have at least one representative in each event at this week’s state Class 4A meet.
The state championship meet starts Friday in Albuquerque. Los Alamos is favored to win its third straight team title.
Since joining District 2-4A in 2000, Los Alamos is undefeated at the district meet.
“The coaches are very proud of all of our athletes and this district championship is a testament to all of the hard work that every single athlete has done all year,” Los Alamos head coach Paul Anderson said.
