Wrestling: ’Toppers Schueler, Geyer go undefeated

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team finished eighth in the 17-team Piedra Vista Invitational tournament Saturday.
Los Alamos earned another solid finish with Saturday’s performance in a high-level tournament which featured tough teams from the Four Corners area. The duals tournament featured the likes of Cleveland, Aztec, Bayfield, Colo. and the host Panthers.
“This tournament was actually a little bit harder than Rio Rancho,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said, talking about the Southwest Duals Los Alamos participated in earlier this month. “There were some really tough matches.”
In its final dual of the day, the Hilltoppers were nipped by the Aztec Tigers 40-36. Aztec has historically been among the best wrestling programs in the state and is currently ranked third in Class 4A.
In most years, Los Alamos would’ve scarcely been able to compete with Aztec, but this year, the Hilltoppers may well have turned a big corner.
Individually, Cory Geyer finished a perfect 4-0 on the day at 152 pounds. Also going 4-0 was 285-pounder Jonathan Schueler, a freshman who is quickly establishing himself as one of the top heavyweights in 4A.
Brian Geyer and Diego Madrid both posted 3-1 records on the day, with both of them losing tough contests that could’ve gone either way.
