-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Emily Weeks grabbed a pair of wins and state qualifying marks for the Hilltopper girls and the last relay came through for the Hilltopper boys Saturday.Both Los Alamos teams crushed all comers at Saturday’s Capital City Invitational, the biggest meet of the track and field season held north of Albuquerque. Los Alamos’ girls won by a comfortable 51.5-point margin and Los Alamos’ boys more than doubled-up on their next-closest opponent at the meet, held at Santa Fe High School.Weeks picked up victories and qualifying marks in both the 100 meters and 200 meters Saturday. Weeks became just the fourth girl in all of Class AAAA to qualify in the 100 meters with her winning time of 12.52, and also posted a 26.04 in the 200 meters.Also for the ‘Topper girls, Alex Nichols won and qualified in the javelin with her toss of 110 feet, 2 inches, and the ‘Topper 1600 relay team of Weeks, Taylor Ealey, Madison Ahlers, and Amanda Trujillo also picked up a state cut time of 4:15.90.The Hilltopper boys’ medley relay squad of Raul Rodriguez, Jason Reagor, Ruben Martinez and Allen Pittman won that event in a season best time of 3:39.18, with Pittman going 2:01.27 in the 800 leg, a season best time for him at that distance.Los Alamos won all four relays, all of them decisively, and picked up seven individual first places Saturday.Spencer Schoonover won the javelin with a season best throw of 134-4, while the four Los Alamos entries in the 300 hurdles — Matt Zocco, Rodriguez, Noah Sandoval and Dion Obermeyer took first through fourth in that event.
