Wrestling: Toppers earn 4 medals Saturday

It wasn’t even on the team’s schedule initially, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team is glad it made Saturday’s trip.

Los Alamos earned a quartet of top-four finishes Saturday at the Rattler Open out of 10 competing wrestlers with Jodi Cull-Host and Desmond Fellers both advancing to the championship bout.

The Rattler Open was held in Tucumcari.

Cull-Host, wrestling at 103 pounds, nearly upset Eric Gomez of Los Lunas in the final round of the tournament, but surrendered a penalty point with just seconds remaining in the final round and falling 8-6. Fellers, meanwhile, made the championship contest at 152 pounds but lost in that bout to Oscar Magana of Ruidoso

It was as good a finish for the Hilltoppers as first-year head coach Bob Geyer would’ve hoped for.

“We’re pretty happy,” Geyer said. “Everybody’s stepping up for us pretty good. We’re wrestling tough. Even the matches we lost, we had some close ones.”

The Hilltoppers have a young, freshman-heavy squad this season and has the stated goal of constant improvement over victories. And so far, things have been looking up.
