The Los Alamos boys’ and girls’ golf teams both cruised to District 2-5A titles Wednesday at the Los Alamos Golf Course.
The Hilltopper girls shot a 364 to win their team title. The score was the girls’ fifth state-qualifying leg in 10 attempts this year, giving them two more than the required three legs needed to advance to the Class 5A state championships, which will be held May 9-10 at Farmington’s Piñon Hills course.
The Hilltopper boys weren’t too far away from qualifying for state. The boys shot a 328 to win the district tournament, just nine shots above a state-qualifying leg. Any district champion who shoots a qualifying leg at the district tournament automatically qualifies for state.
Finishing behind the Hilltopper boys were Del Norte (385), Capital (471) and Española Valley (no score).
Española Valley also competed in the girls’ tournament, but didn’t post a team score there either.
Individually, Los Alamos also claimed both district titles and nine of the 10 first-team all district spots.
Jennifer Necker, who will also compete at state as an individual, shot an 80 to win the girls’ championship.
Eighth-grader Henry Poston shot a 79 to win the boys’ title, just one shot above a state-qualifying leg.
