'Toppers expect big things at 4A tourney

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

When the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling program’s coaching staff sat down Tuesday night to crunch the numbers, the group figured it had a good shot of getting five individuals seeded.
Los Alamos will take part in the Class 4A state championship tournament. The tournament gets going Friday morning and continues through Saturday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
The Hilltoppers are going into the state tournament fresh off their victory in the District 2-4A tournament last weekend. In what might be a first for the Hilltopper team, it qualified its entire contingent of 14 wrestlers for state.
Heading in, Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said he and the rest of his staff sat down Tuesday to figure out where his wrestlers may end up when the official draw is released tonight.
Taking into account winning percentages and head-to-head results with other Class 4A competitors, Los Alamos likes its chances of getting five individuals tagged with top-four seeds.
“It would be nice to be opposite the No. 1s more often,” Geyer said. “But I think we’ll be OK.”
Among those the team figures will be likely seeds are Chandler Lauritzen at 132 pounds, Lane Saunders at 152 pounds, 160-pounder Cory Geyer, 170-pounder Arnoldo Ortiz and Brian Geyer at 182 pounds.
