The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team took 16th out of 25 competing teams at last weekend’s Cardinal Classic tournament.
Los Alamos earned 104 points at the tournament, which was hosted by Las Vegas Robertson, one of the top small-school programs in the state. While the point total wasn’t enough to get the Hilltoppers anywhere near contention for the team title, it was still good enough to put them ahead of three of their four District 2-4A competitors.
The tournament was the next-to-last event of the regular season for Los Alamos, which will host its finale Saturday.
At the Cardinal Classic, Los Alamos’ top wrestler, Brian Geyer, won the 195-pound gold bracket, picking up some big wins along the way, including against Capital’s Jacob Esquibel in the semifinals and Carlos Vega of Silver, a Class 3A state title contender, in the championship round.
Geyer, a defending state champ from last season, topped Vega 10-6 to pick up the win. Geyer had been held out from competition with an illness about two weeks earlier.
“I felt pretty good,” he said. “It was a pretty tough tournament and there were a lot of tough teams there. But I got some head-to-heads (victories) there that I wanted to get before state.”
