Blaine Lattin again led a big outing for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team this weekend.

Lattin took the gold medal in the 189-pound bracket for the Hilltoppers at a singles tournament, hosted by Albuquerque’s Valley High School. Los Alamos was originally slated to compete at Highland but was rerouted to Valley late last week by Albuquerque Public Schools officials.

In all, Los Alamos took home six medals, four in the junior varsity bracket and two more in the varsity tournament. For the tournament, the Hilltopper squad went a combined 16-6.

“It was nice to see the kids that were able to wrestle do well,” Los Alamos head coach Eric Sorenson said. “It seems we’re picking things up. We’re clicking. Everything’s falling in place right now to ramp-up and be ready for state.”

Lattin stuck Gallup’s Kevin Smith and Sandia’s Elliot Tsoodle in the first two rounds of the championship bracket to make it the 189-pound finals.

In the finals, Lattin met up with Saul Urbina of Moriarty. The two met a week earlier in the Joe Vivian bracket at West Mesa, with Lattin nipping Urbina in overtime.
