Wrestling: Hokies help run LA summer camp

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Just ahead of several local wrestlers’ appearance at a national tournament this weekend, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling program is hosting a team camp.
The camp, which opened Monday at the Pueblo Complex, features instruction from Virginia Tech’s collegiate program.
Virginia Tech’s assistant coach Nate Yetzer and one of its top wrestlers, Jesse Dong, will help run the camp.
The camp continues through Wednesday.
About 20 wrestlers were present for Monday’s opening day, including a group of seven wrestlers from Tucumcari High School, approximately 250 miles away.
“This is the stuff I like,” said Yetzer. “This is stuff that works at the little kids’ level all the way to the college level. Everybody’s different, but everyone needs a good skill set.”
Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said he’d been in contact with Virginia Tech previously to appear at a camp in Los Alamos. The school planned to travel to Los Alamos two years ago, but those plans ultimately fell through.
But this year, Virginia Tech welcomed the chance to appear at the camp.
