So far, so good for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team.
Following up on a solid finish against some top teams from around the region last weekend, the Hilltoppers were dominant against the St. Pius X Sartans at home Wednesday.
Los Alamos earned two pins and a major decision in its first four head-to-head contests against St. Pius, setting the tone for a big 64-16 victory at Auxiliary Gymnasium. Los Alamos earned six pinfalls Wednesday, including 106-pounder Mateo Cardiel, who needed just 20 seconds to stick St. Pius Chris Barger.
It was the biggest Hilltopper victory in several seasons and the biggest under head coach Bob Geyer.
“The whole team looked pretty good,” Geyer said. “I’m pretty happy with it. We’ve got to fix some things, putting deep half-nelsons, putting that arm behind, but that’s about it.”
This season, the Hilltoppers are featuring a full slate of wrestlers, something they haven’t seen very often since the mid-1990s. The Hilltoppers were the beneficiaries of four forfeit contests against St. Pius – the vast majority of the time in the recent past, it had been Los Alamos giving away weight classes.
