LAHS golf teams win district tournaments

Both Los Alamos High School golf teams claimed district championships this week as they continue to prepare for next week’s state championship meet. 

The LAHS boys took first place with a team score of 312, ahead of second place Albuquerque Academy, which finished with a score of 323. Hope Christian finished in third place with a score of 335. 

LAHS’ Henry Poston took home the individual district championship with a score of 70, which is two strokes under par at the Taos Country Club, where the tournament was held. 

His teammate, Davis Johnson, also finished in the top three overall with a score of 75, just two strokes back of the second place finisher. 

The other Hilltopper boys’ golfers also had strong days, as Jacob Benelli finished with a score of 83, Conner Cook finished with a score of 84 and Landon Burk finished with a score of 86. 

For the boys, this is the sixth consecutive year the team has won the district championship. Last year, the team rode its momentum of winning the district championship to a victory at the state tournament as well.
