After fairly lengthy layoffs, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling and swimming teams will both be back in action this weekend.
Both teams have been off since last month, with the Hilltopper swimming team taking part in the Dec. 21 Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational and the wrestling team competing in the Rattler Invitational in Tucumcari that same day.
Saturday, the boys and girls swim teams will be back in Albuquerque for a Mini-Invitational, although Hilltopper head coach Stu Corliss isn’t sure how a meet with eight competing teams qualifies as a mini-meet.
Nevertheless, he thinks his team should be ready to return to competition.
“During the break we had a lot of people on holiday with their families,” he said. “They still had workouts. I guess we’ll find out if they did those workouts.”
Meanwhile, Los Alamos’ wrestling team will be at Albuquerque Academy Saturday for a selection of duals contests. Those will come just four days before the Hilltoppers make their first home appearance of the season taking on Academy and Rio Rancho’s junior varsity — a squad that can compete very well with most varsity teams around the state.
