Wrestling: LA’s 132- pounder Lauritzen earns team award

By Mike Cote

If the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was in need of momentum heading into the District 2-4A tournament this week, it found some on Saturday.
Los Alamos hosted its annual Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational Saturday, the final event of its regular season. In the tournament, Los Alamos’ top squad finished with 163 points to pick up the team victory, outdistancing the Valencia Jaguars, who finished with 139 points.
At the tournament, Los Alamos’ grapplers earned four top weight-class finishes. Cory Geyer was the big winner at 152 pounds, Brian Geyer won at 170 pound, Jonathan Schueler won a two-man battle at heavyweight and Arnoldo Ortiz picked up a win in the closest-contested weight class of the day, 182 pounds.
Ortiz, Taos’ Andrew Maes and Valencia’s Ramon Fuentes each split three contests against one another, but Ortiz won the tiebreaker on point differential between the three. All three wrestlers went 4-1 on the day — the tournament was a round-robin format — but Ortiz’s major decision over Fuentes overcame his only loss of the day, a 5-2 decision to Maes, to give him the victory.
“I was hoping for the best,” Ortiz said. “The cards just fell into my favor.”
