The Los Alamos High School girls golf team closed out their regular season Tuesday at the Los Alamos Golf Course with a team score of 388. That team score was their fourth qualifying score of the season.

The team played again Wednesday at the Los Alamos Golf Course for the District 2 5A championship. The team improved by 24 strokes over its Tuesday performance with a score of 364 to win the District title.

Jennifer Necker won the individual District title shooting a season best 80. Hilltoppers Emily Moulton shot 92, followed by Malorie Apgar (94), Leah Mountain (98) and Faith Koh (112).

Coach Mike Lippiatt congratulated the team members and told them they were peaking at the right time. The team will be preparing to play in the state tournament in Farmington in two weeks.
