The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team pulled down three third-place finishes in the junior varsity bracket of Saturday’s tournament at Del Norte.
Los Alamos put most of its young, inexperienced team into the JV draw Saturday, placing only three wrestlers into the varsity bracket. None of Los Alamos’ three varsity entries survived past the first round of consolation bouts.
Saturday’s tournament featured some solid competitors from around the Albuquerque area, including La Cueva, Eldorado and Los Lunas.
The surprise winner in the varsity event, however, was Class AAAA Volcano Vista. Hilltopper head coach Robert Geyer said Volcano Vista had an impressive showing, picking up a decisive victory.
In the JV bracket, 119-pounder Jonah Katz, 135-pounder Ben Mitsunaga and 189-pounder Diego Madrid went a combined 10-3 in the tournament to grab their third-place finishes.
Interestingly, all of them lost their opening round bouts and had to make their way through the consolation brackets to get to the final round.
In the varsity tournament, Chris Speight, Desmond Fellers and Clint Adams all went two-and-out. Los Alamos didn’t score a single team point in that competition.
