  • LA Girls Win 4th Straight State Title

    ALBUQUERQUE — The fourth time might have been the charm.
    It went down to the wire at the Class 4A state championship meet this weekend, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls clinched their fourth consecutive state title.
    Los Alamos needed virtually every bit of the top performances from its top athletes at the 4A state meet, held at the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex, to earn its fourth title in a row. The Hilltoppers grabbed 78 points, just holding onto the top spot and fending off a stout charge from the Aztec Tigers.
