Track teams set personal bests in Alamogordo

Making the four-hour trip to the southern part of the state, the Los Alamos High School Track and Field teams enjoyed a successful weekend in Alamogordo, with the girls taking second place and the boys taking fourth place in the eight-team event.

The girls had a number of standout performances, led by Becca Green, who came away victorious in the shot put and the discus events.

Green threw the discus 120 feet, six feet further than the second place competitor, Victoria Hernandez, of El Paso Irvin.

Green’s dominance in the shot put also continued, as her throw of 38 feet-9.5 inches was nearly a foot farther than the next closest competitor, Asia Salas of Silver High School.

Green has been among the leaders in both events at every meet so far this season and appears likely to contend for state championships.

Bailey Yost also had a great meet for the Hilltoppers, earning first place in the high jump by clearing 5 feet-4 inches.
She also earned sixth place in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 17.94 seconds.

LAHS dominated in the 3,200-meter run, as Lidia Appell won with a time of 12:02.20 and Mabel Pyle earned second place with a time of 12:03.40. No other runner was within nine seconds of the Hilltopper girls.
