Toppers knock off Chargers, Rams

-A A +A

Wrestling: LA picks up two big wins in home triangular

By Mike Cote

The second half of the winter season didn’t get off to the start the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was hoping.
After a disappointing finish Saturday, the Hilltoppers were hoping to bounce back at home Wednesday, and it did. The Hilltoppers knocked off a pair of visiting teams at Auxiliary Gymnasium, defeating both Albuquerque Academy and Rio Rancho.
Los Alamos picked up a decisive team victory over Academy, taking a 42-23 decision. In the other contest, which featured much of the Rams’ younger wrestlers, Los Alamos nipped the Rams 42-39.
Wednesday’s competition was originally scheduled to be a quadrangular meet, but Pecos, the fourth invitee, was a no-show. Los Alamos will travel to Pecos for a tournament this weekend.
To compensate for the absence of Pecos, the Hilltoppers split their squad in two — a luxury they can afford this year for the first time in many years — to wrestle mostly exhibition contests.
For the Hilltoppers, they were able to bounce back from their disappointing showing at a duals meet in Moriarty Saturday. The team finished ninth, dropping all four of their duals meets, including two it felt it could’ve won.
Saturday’s meet was the first back from a long winter break and Los Alamos, as a whole, came out with little spark.
