Despite competing in a place well known to have some top-shelf wrestling talent, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers were hoping to have a better showing than they turned in this weekend.
Los Alamos, which was missing a pair of its top wrestlers due to illness, failed to get anyone into the gold medal bracket at this weekend’s Robertson Invitational, held in Las Vegas. Kory Nelson and Paul Martinez both finished in second place in the silver bracket and Desmond Fellers picked up a solid third place finish in the silver bracket, but it wasn’t the kind of effort Los Alamos was looking for with just two weeks remaining before the District 2AAAA tournament.
“I wasn’t real happy,” Los Alamos head coach Eric Sorensen said. “We lost some matches we should’ve won and not necessarily because of mistakes. We weren’t wrestling up to our potential.”
The tournament ended up being a disappointing one for Los Alamos partially because it had wrestled very well for most of the month of January.
The tournament started Friday with teams wrestling in round-robin format, with the top two wrestlers in each weight class advancing to Saturday’s gold medal individual tournament and the next two finishers going into the silver tournament.
