The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team started its season off with a solid middle-of-the-pack finish in one of the toughest contests in the state.
Los Alamos took 14th at the Southwest Duals this weekend. The Southwest Duals, hosted by Rio Rancho, included not only some of the top teams in New Mexico, but teams from all across the region, including Texas, Arizona, Colorado and even as far away as Kansas.
It was the 2011-12 opener for the Hilltoppers, who brought a nearly complete roster with them to the duals. The Hilltoppers, who have struggled filling out a full lineup for most of the recent past, have as many as 30 wrestlers available to them this season.
Los Alamos was only lacking a 106- and 126-pounder for this tournament.
Hilltopper 152-pounder Cory Geyer, a junior, and 182-pounder Brian Geyer, a sophomore, got their season off to a strong start. Both finished 6-2 in eight contests Friday and Saturday.
Cory and Brian Geyer were two of six Hilltoppers who won at least half their matches this weekend against some very good teams.
“All things considered, at the Rio Rancho Duals, it was a pretty respectable finish,” said Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer. “We got a lot of mat time, we corrected a few mistakes. We made some stupid mistakes that we’ve got to fix this week.”
