Hilltoppers claim second straight district title

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

ESPAÑOLA – It wasn’t so long ago when folks around the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling program were asking if the team could sneak into the top three at the district tournament.
The question has become, in a relatively short period of time, whether the other teams in district are going to be able to hang with the Hilltoppers.
The answer to that question, at least for the 2012-13 season, is no.
Saturday, Los Alamos picked up a solid win in the District 2-4A championship tournament at Edward Medina Gymnasium. Los Alamos didn’t end up wrestling quite as well as it had hoped coming in, but it was still good enough to earn 170.5 points, nearly 30 points better than runner-up Capital.
Capital, which appeared to be Los Alamos’ closest competitor for a team title coming in, had an uneven showing at the tournament and couldn’t make up for it despite a solid showing in the final round.
The win by the Hilltoppers was their second straight 2-4A title. They broke a nearly 20-year dry spell by grabbing the district title last season.
Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said he knew as long as his team came out to perform Saturday, its chances of winning another title were excellent.
