ALBUQUERQUE – There was a huge target on the collective back of the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team this season.
It would be the Aztec Tigers that would find the mark.
The impressive four-year reign of the Hilltoppers at the Class 4A state meet came to an end Saturday at the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex. The Tigers, the first team in many years to rival the Hilltoppers’ roster depth, claimed the 4A state title with a total of 76 points.
The Hilltoppers managed a total of 59 points, not enough to hang on to their title.
