'Toppers fall to Chargers and Rams

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

It’s been a bit of a chore for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team to get back on track following the winter break.
Los Alamos didn’t have the kind of showing it was hoping for last weekend at a tournament hosted by Albuquerque Academy and it was hoping to bounce back from that Wednesday when it hosted Academy and Rio Rancho in a triangular meet.
But, due to a few factors, not the least of which was key absences from its regular starting lineup, Los Alamos fell short in both its duals contests.
The Hilltoppers were nipped by Academy’s Chargers to start the meet, 39-37, then fell to Rio Rancho 39-27.
Things may well have gone differently for the Hilltoppers with their full lineup at their disposal.
Most notably absent from the lineup Wednesday was Brian Geyer, Los Alamos’ 195-pounder and defending state champion. Geyer, along with some other Hilltoppers, was battling illness and was kept out of action.
Without Geyer, Los Alamos had to give up a forfeit at 195 pounds to Academy’s Seth Packer, one of the bouts that the Hilltoppers would otherwise have been favored in.
