The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team finished seventh among the eight teams competing in the Class 4A tournament this week.
The Hilltopper girls team, along with individual qualifier Raul Roybal from the Hilltopper boys team, took part in the 4A championship Monday and Tuesday at the New Mexico State University championship course in Las Cruces.
Los Alamos’ girls finished with a two-day total of 773. After finishing with a team round of 392 Monday, Los Alamos improved 11 strokes Tuesday.
That wasn’t enough to make a serious move up the leaderboard, however. Kirtland Central, which has been a solid program for several years but struggled in the first day, finishing in sixth place, just five strokes ahead of the Hilltoppers, dropped 39 strokes in day two, coming in with a 348.
