SANTA FE — Just about everything the Los Alamos Hilltopper varsity wrestling team set out to do got done this weekend, and then some.The big thing on the agenda for Los Alamos at the Jaguar Invitational, hosted by Capital High School, was simply for everyone on the squad to get some quality time on the mat and try to avoid any early exits.Of the seven Hilltoppers who competed this week, six of them advanced in the tournament, and four of those grapplers advanced to the medal round.“It’s definitely a good start,” Hilltopper captain Blaine Lattin said. “We did amazing this weekend. There’s still some fine-tuning stuff we need to get. Conditioning wasn’t as good as I thought, but that’s easily fixed.”Lattin, wrestling at 189 pounds, was one of two Hilltoppers to advance to the championship round in his weight class. He scored a pair of impressive pins en route to the title bout in the tournament before losing a nip-and-tuck decision to Santa Fe’s Raymond Guardado, 7-4.Despite having just seven wrestling in the varsity tournament, Los Alamos still managed a solid seventh-place finish overall, earning 78 team points.
