This weekend, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team will be looking to continue its dominance at the Class 4A state meet.
Los Alamos seems to be well positioned to do just that at the 4A meet, which starts Friday and continues through Saturday at the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex in Albuquerque.
The Hilltoppers, who are the two-time defending champions at the meet, have representatives in every event and some that are well positioned to vie for state individual titles.
Meanwhile, Los Alamos’ boys have high hopes of coming up with a big showing like they had in 2010, that coming from an underdog role.
Los Alamos’ girls posted decisive wins in both 2009 and 2010. In 2009, Los Alamos crushed all comers, posting a Class 3A, 4A and 5A best team total of 120 points, 47 points better than Albuquerque Academy and St. Pius X.
Last season, the Hilltoppers earned a healthy total of 103 points, winning six different events. Academy was the 4A runner-up, scoring 82 points. Kirtland Central was third with 57.5 points.
Hilltopper head coach Paul Anderson said there is plenty of competition in 4A that could make his team’s attempt at a three-peat a tough one.
