After going over the final results, Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling coach Bob Geyer learned the results for his team this weekend weren’t quite as bas as he’d thought.
But the results weren’t as good as he’d hoped, either.
Coming off a tough weekend at Aztec, Los Alamos is preparing for another challenge this weekend when it travels to Las Vegas for the Robertson Invitational. Robertson, much like Aztec, is among the most successful programs in the state.
This week, the Hilltoppers have been working on simply getting out quicker, particularly when working off the bottom, something Geyer said he’d seen improvement on a week earlier at Pecos but not so much at Aztec.
At the Aztec Duals, the Hilltoppers went 2-3 in their pool, topping Farmington and Shiprock handily, but getting soundly defeated by Bloomfield and St. Michael’s. Los Alamos lost a tight 42-39 contest to Kirtland Central.
Individually, Lane Saunders at 152 pounds and Brian Geyer at 182 pounds, went a combined 10-0 on the day. Cory Geyer, at 160, finished 4-1, while Chandler Lauritzen (132), Diego Madrid (195) and John Dermer (285) all finished with overall records of 3-2.
The end of the Hilltoppers’ season is approaching. After this weekend’s tournament, they will host their annual Bryan Sanchez Invitational Feb. 9. The District 2-4A tournament is scheduled for the following week.
