Wrestling: LA picks up 3 team wins in Saturday’s meet

By The Staff

Heading into the Aztec Duals Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team thought it might be in for a rough outing.
However, despite being short-handed, Los Alamos still picked up three duals victories and earned a fifth-place finish.
Early Saturday, Los Alamos, which took only eight wrestlers to the meet, dropped a 45-34 decision to Bloomfield to open the tournament, but bounced back to beat Farmington 36-30.
Based on head-to-head bouts, Los Alamos would’ve topped Bloomfield as well – the score in contested bouts was 34-9 – but because many of the younger Hilltopper wrestlers were competing in a tournament at Atrisco Heritage, the team was giving up forfeits in several different weight classes. Los Alamos was also without Isaac Koh, who was coming off a big win at Capital last week, with Koh out sick.
Hilltopper head coach Bob Geyer said he was expecting the duals to be rough – in addition to being short-handed, the tournament also featured some of the top teams from the Four Corners area – but the wrestlers he brought with him were up to the challenge.
“It’s not as bad as I though it was going to be,” Geyer said. “We’re wrestling good…if I had to pick a MVP today, I don’t know if I could do it.”
