The Los Alamos Hilltopper swimming and diving teams finished well off the pace at the 2011-12 state championship meet this weekend.
The state title meet was hosted again this year by Albuquerque Academy, which itself saw its impressive streak of boys team title victories snapped.
Los Alamos’ push to make a good showing at state never materialized. It finished eighth in the girls final standings with 114 points, while it managed just a 22nd-place finish on the boys side.
Academy’s girls scored a decisive team victory, picking up 339 points, 72 points better than runner-up Las Cruces.
