Hilltopper Chelsea Challacombe, seen here during the 2013 state Class 4A meet, had a huge showing at last week’s Marilyn Sepulveda Invitational.
Challacombe having big 2014 season

 For many years, the Los Alamos Hillopper girls track and field team has relied heavily on its stars to shine brightest in the biggest meets of the season.

The team now may have found its star for 2014.

After a solid first 6 weeks of the year, junior Chelsea Challacombe had a breakout meet last Monday against what is usually the toughest competition of any season.
Challacombe earned a decisive win in the high jump at Monday’s meet, clearing a lifetime best 5 feet, 8 inches, the finished second behind a very formidable foe in the long jump. To top that off, she also took fourth in the 100 meter hurdles.
