At the start of Los Alamos’ dual contest with the Capital Jaguars, it appeared the Hilltoppers were going to cruise to victory.
Instead, the Hilltoppers had to sweat out a close finish against their District 2-4A rival.
The Hilltopper wrestling team went 2-0 against the two full teams it faced and won one of three head-to-head contests against a handful of Española Valley wrestlers in their first home contest of the season Wednesday.
Los Alamos prevailed big over the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, 50-18, at Auxiliary Gymnasium but needed every one of its five victories over the Jaguars, along with a pair of forfeit wins, to hold on for a 41-39 victory.
The Hilltopper-Jaguar contest opened at the 152-pound weight class — the opening weight is determined by random draw — and Los Alamos’ Lane Saunders, Cory Geyer, Arnoldo Ortiz and Brian Geyer picked up impressive wins right off the bat. Saunders and Cory Geyer had first period pins for the Hilltoppers, while Brian Geyer bounced back from a slow start for a late second period pin and Ortiz won by technical fall over Capital’s Ryan Siccio.
