The Los Alamos girls’ golf team will compete in the Class 5A state championships Monday and Tuesday at Farmington’s Piñon Hills Golf Course.
Jenner Necker, who shot seven state-qualifying legs this season, will also be competing for an individual title.
Joining Necker in the state championships are teammates Emily Moulton, Malorie Apgar, Leah Mountain and Faith Koh.
Moulton and Mountain also shot state-qualifying legs this year.
Los Alamos shot five state-qualifying legs this year, two more than the required three, to reach the championships. The Hilltopper girls shot two of those legs at the Los Alamos Golf Course, two at the Coyote del Malpais Golf Course and one leg at the Ladera Golf Course.
The ’Toppers will now compete against Artesia, who shot a state-qualifying leg in all 11 tournaments the team played in the this year, Goddard, Albuquerque Academy, Lovington, Piedra Vista and St. Pius X.
St. Pius X had nine state-qualifying legs while Goddard and Lovington each had eight.
Three of Los Alamos’ state-legs came in the fall, but Los Alamos shot two consecutive legs on its home course to end its regular season April 26 and 27.
