Wrestling: Toppers taking six to state Class 4A tourney this season

-A A +A

LA’s 145-pounder Cory Geyer could get a top-six seed

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team will take six members to the state Class 4A championship meet this weekend, with one wrestler having a fair chance at grabbing a coveted top six seed.
The New Mexico Activities Association will host its state tournament Friday and Saturday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho. Friday’s opening round is set for 10 a.m.
With six wrestlers qualified, it’s highly unlikely the Hilltoppers will be a factor in the team standings. Their focus heading in is on individual performance.
Los Alamos’ grapplers earned their berths into the state meet last weekend at the District 2AAAA tournament. Los Alamos qualified Chandler Lauritzen (125 pounds), Alyc Montoya (135 pounds), Ben Mitsunaga (140 pounds), Cory Geyer (145 pounds), Brian Geyer (160 pounds) and Peter Brewer (171 pounds), all of which earned top-four finishes at the district tournament.
While Hilltopper head coach Bob Geyer said he was glad to get all but two competitors from last week qualified for state — another wrestler, Jodi Cull-Host at 103 pounds, took part in a NJROTC event last weekend instead of the district tournament — he said he still saw several missed opportunities for wins at the district meet that the Hilltoppers left on the mat.
