Toppers finish 9th at Moriarty contest

Wrestling: LA turns in ‘flat’ performance following winter break layoff

The winter break usually affords sports teams a little breather in the middle of the season.
In the case of the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team, it might have been too long a layoff.
The Hilltoppers struggled to a ninth-place finish Saturday at the Moriarty Pinto Invitational. The Hilltoppers lost all four of their duals contests, one of which, a particularly ugly 60-18 defeat, came at the hands of a team the Hilltoppers perhaps should’ve hung closer with, the Valley Vikings.
It was a low-energy showing for Los Alamos Saturday, something that may have been due at least in part to the long layoff — the Hilltoppers hadn’t wrestled competitively in nearly three weeks.
“We just looked flat,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “We were really flat in the second round…the Chirstmas break killed us this year. A lot of kids were out of town, they weren’t in the wrestling room, visiting grandma and grandpa. Usually, that’s what happens. We have to go back to the drawing board and see what we can do.”
Los Alamos won’t have much time to prep for its next contest, either. It will be in action against some solid teams Wednesday afternoon at home.
