It was a mixed bag for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team Saturday at the Moriarty Invitational.
While Los Alamos had some solid performances at the multi-team dual meet, hosted by Moriarty’s Pintos, those were coupled with some rough outings against a strong field.
“It was tough,” Los Alamos first-year coach Bob Geyer said. “Every time there was pretty good. We got a few wins, but we didn’t wrestle that great.”
The Hilltoppers, in their first outing since the Tucumcari Rattler Invitational Dec. 19, failed to win a team dual at Saturday’s event in Moriarty. The Hilltoppers were edged out by Santa Fe in pool play and gave Piedra Vista a scare in a consolation round event, but took it on the chin against Cibola and Moriarty’s Pintos.
Freshman Corey Geyer, wrestling at 135 pounds, had a big outing for Los Alamos Saturday, winning all five of his contests on the day and Gary Thorne, returning from a non-wrestling injury suffered during the preseason, made his debut for the team, going 4-1 in five bouts.
Thorne, the lone senior on a very young Los Alamos team, earned two pinfalls, one against Santa Fe and one against Piedra Vista, in his return to the 171-pound weight class.
