Los Alamos’ boys golf team members and coaches show off their hardware after the District 2-5A championships.
Hilltopper golf teams take district gold

Los Alamos’ boys and girls golf teams both defended their District 2-5A championships Monday at the Santa Fe Country Club.
The Hilltopper boys shot a 360 to take first. Del Norte (421) finished second, followed by Española Valley (424) and Capital (429).
The Hilltopper girls, meanwhile, shot a 427. They were the only girls squad to post a team score.
“Both the boys and girls golf teams won the district tournament for the second year in a row, which really shows the effort our kids are putting in at the golf course,” coach Andy Ainsworth said.
Los Alamos claimed both individual championships as well. Jonathan Osden got off to a slow start, but rebounded on the back nine to take the boys championship with an 83.
“Johnny has been consistent throughout his career at Los Alamos and it was great for him to end his district career by finally winning the district championship,” Ainsworth said. “I’m super proud of Johnny for hanging in there and for making such a strong comeback.”
Malorie Apgar won the girls championship with a 90.
“Malorie Apgar stepped up her game by shooting her low round of the season at the most important event that we have had this year,” Ainsworth said.
