The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team picked up its second win of the season in three outings Saturday, taking top honors at the Bernalillo Invitational.
Meanwhile, the Hilltopper boys finished a strong second behind Rio Rancho at the same event.
Los Alamos’ girls earned 128.5 points Saturday, easily outdistancing Rio Rancho in second place. Only Class 5A school Rio Rancho (73) and 3A Las Vegas Robertson (66) finished with even half the Hilltoppers’ total in the 10-team event.
For the Hilltopper boys, they earned 117 team points, falling just short of Rio Rancho’s 125 points. Santa Fe, one of Los Alamos’ three District 2AAAA opponents taking part in the meet, was third with 62.5 points. Neither Bernalillo nor Capital were factors in Saturday’s team standings.
Laura Wendelberger of Los Alamos continued her impressive early season showing. Wendelberger, the reigning Class 4A high jump champ, won four events and finished with new state qualifying marks in three of those, the 100- and 300-meter hurdles and the long jump.
Teresa Sandoval also qualified for Los Alamos in the 1600 meters and Lindsay Benage also earned a qualification mark in the long jump, finishing in second place behind Wendelberger.
