Spring golf opener cut short by wind

The spring season opener for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team was cut short Monday.
Los Alamos started a round at the Belen Invitational Monday morning, but wind speeds were hitting 50 mph during play. The wind and accompanying dust made the Tierra Del Sol course virtually unplayable.
Hilltopper head coach John Stam said the tournament, one of five scheduled for his team this spring, may be rescheduled for April 7.
