It would seem to be something of a meteoric rise. In fact, it was anything but.
With the 2012 cross country season winding down, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys standout Sean Reardon seems primed to make one of the biggest splashes on a team that’s making big waves.
Reardon, with a big showing his senior year, has established himself as one of the runners, if not the runner, to beat this postseason. He will show his stuff at Friday’s District 2-4A meet and the following week’s Class 4A championship.
With five top-five finishes this year, including his first career victory at Los Lunas and a third-place finish at the regional Desert Twilight Meet in Phoenix last month, Reardon has every right to start taking things for granted. But, as with the entirety of the Hilltopper cross country program, he doesn’t afford himself that luxury.
“We’re planning to get the job done at district and going into state feeling strong,” Reardon said. “We’re confident in our abilities to peak.”
Reardon has been a steady runner for the Los Alamos cross country and track programs since 2010.
