Now, with the toughest stretch of its regular season behind it, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team has learned a few things about itself.
The Hilltoppers took part in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Friday. The Academy Invitational, despite being a relatively small meet with just 13 teams invited, can be one of the most competitive of the season.
Los Alamos placed fourth in Friday’s meet, garnering 132 team points. The host Academy Chargers won the meet with 63 points, outdistancing Rio Rancho, which finished second.
