LA takes 2nd at Sanchez tourney

-A A +A

Wrestling > Aguirre named this year’s Sanchez Award recipient

It was the goal of the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team to end its season in style, as is always the case when it hosts the Bryan Sanchez Invitational tournament.
And Los Alamos managed that, taking second place in the 12-team tournament Saturday at the Auxiliary Gymnasium.
Los Alamos finished with 148 team points at the tournament, trailing only Las Vegas Robertson in the team standings. Robertson’s Cardinals grabbed 160 points.
Along the way, the Hilltoppers picked up three individual wins.
Saturday’s tournament was the regular season finale for Los Alamos, which will now prepare to defend its back-to-back district titles at Bernalillo this coming weekend.
The Sanchez tournament carries special significance to the Hilltopper program. It is held to honor the memory of one a departed alumni and the most significant team award of the year is given out.
The recipient of the Bryan Sanchez Award for this season was Nathan Aguirre, who was selected by the Sanchez family as the Hilltopper who most embodies Sanchez’s spirit.
Sanchez was a graduate of Los Alamos’ program. He died in an automobile accident on Christmas Eve 2008 at the age of 21.
