Wrestling: Toppers win one of four at home duals meet

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

No one can accuse the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team of resting on its laurels this month.
The Hilltoppers hosted their second event of the a six-event slate Wednesday afternoon, entertaining Albuquerque Academy, Capital, Pecos and Rio Rancho at Auxiliary Gymnasium.
Los Alamos won just one of the four duals contests Wednesday, its final dual against Pecos. Nevertheless, Los Alamos was feeling upbeat afterwards.
“We did alright,” Hilltopper senior Desmond Fellers said. “We’ve got a lot of things to improve on, finishing our shots, finishing our half-nelsons, but overall, I think we did really good.”
Fellers, who is just getting back to action following a dislocated shoulder suffered late last season, earned three pinfalls in four outings Wednesday to help pace the team.
Los Alamos has been solid all season in the middle weight classes, with Corey Geyer, Brian Geyer and Alyc Montoya all turning in good showings, along with 103-pounder Jodi Cull-Host, who earned a pair of pins.
But Los Alamos, which is lacking several weight classes, couldn’t make up for the deficits in its three losses.
The toughest loss of the day came at the hands of Capital, the Hilltoppers’ next-to-last opponent. Despite the Hilltoppers heading into that dual right off a nearly hour-long break, the Jaguars still prevailed 45-30.
The Jagaurs jumped out to a 29-6 lead after six bouts. The Hilltoppers came back later in the contest, winning four straight before Capital closed out the dual with three wins, two by forfeit.
Los Alamos continues its busy stretch at the Joe Vivian Invitational this weekend, quite possibly the most competitive singles tournament in the state. The Vivian tournament includes 32-man brackets for each weight.
Brian Geyer, currently Los Alamos’ hottest wrestler after picking up two pins and a major decision after going 5-0 three days earlier at the Moriarty Duals, said he thinks the showing is something the team can build on.
“I think we’re all wrestling really tough,” said Geyer. “We’re a lot more aggressive on the mat than we were in earlier tournaments.”
