Los Altos High’s Thea Mollerstedt won both girls hurdles races last week against Lynbrook.

The Los Altos High girls track and field team took a circuitous route to going undefeated in league.

Days before beating Lynbrook last week to cap their dual-meet season, the Eagles learned that they retroactively won their March 23 meet against Milpitas. Los Altos co-head coach Dave Barth said that after a scoring error in the girls high jump was corrected, his team was declared the victor.
