Little by little, a young Los Alamos Hillltopper squad is improving, as evidenced by Friday’s showing at the Capital Invitational Tournament.
Los Alamos sent seven wrestlers down to the tournament, hosted by Capital’s Jaguars.
While only one of those seven grapplers finished Friday’s action unblemished, the other six remained alive in the consolation bracket.
Saturday, Los Alamos picked up a couple of tournament victories, with 103-pounder Jodi Cull-Host and 145-pounder Clint Adams both advancing in the consolation round.
“Overall, it’s a pretty good tournament,” new Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “The kids that did come, they wrestled hard. I’m pretty happy about it.”
In Friday’s action, freshman John Gibson, filling in for absent regular starter Desmond Fellers in the 152-pound bracket, picked up a win to advance in the championship bracket.
“Some kids drew better than others did (in the brackets),” Geyer said. “John’s second match was pretty tough for him, but he wrestled smart. For having to step up to 152 pounds, he really wrestled smart.”
