-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Not only did Los Alamos’ athletes survive gusty, cold winds at this weekend’s District 2AAAA Track Meet at Sullivan Field against Bernalillo, Capital, Española Valley and Taos – they won and won big.

“I’m proud of our coaches and our kids,” said Hilltopper athletic director Vicki Nelms. “They did an awesome job.”

The ‘Topper boys finished first overall with 232 points to Capital’s 78 points.

“The fact that we qualified so many more kids to state is exciting, especially for those who hadn’t qualified previously,” Hilltopper boys head coach Larry Baca said. “We won 18 out of 19 events and scored especially high in many – we went 1, 2, 3 or 1, 2, 4 in a lot of events.”

Senior Noah Sandoval won the high jump Friday and came back to win the 300 hurdles Saturday.

Senior Martin Romero had a 102-degree fever Thursday, Baca said. He went to school Friday and long-jumped at the meet and set a personal record of 20-9.
