LA puts five in top bracket at Robertson

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team placed five grapplers into the gold round of the Las Vegas Invitational this weekend and took one championship.

Despite battling an illness this weekend, Hilltopper Cory Geyer won the gold bracket championship at 160 pounds, winning the championship bout 13-4.

Geyer was up 13-0 heading into the final moments of the championship, but nearly got caught and put on his back in the late seconds before getting out of his sticky situation and holding on to win.

The gold bracket at the Robertson tournament, which included 25 teams, proved a tough one for the Hilltoppers. They would pick up just one more top six finish with Brian Geyer grabbing fourth at 180 pounds.

Brian Geyer, who was also sick, gutted his way through to the championship semifinals until his illness took its toll and he had little left for the rest of the tournament.

Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said he was hoping for a better overall showing from his team, but Los Alamos saw the level of competition he thought it would seed.

“I don’t want any quick pins,” he said. “I want tough matches that are going to get us better.”
