Zak Wilde of Los Alamos made his second straight final round Saturday, but this time came out on top.
Wilde, who wrestles for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers at 160 pounds, pinned Josh Docktor of Bloomfield to win his weight class as the Piedra Vista Invitational.
Los Alamos, which took just five wrestlers to the two-day individual tournament, which started Friday, finished in seventh place with 44 points. The tournament was won by the Class AAA Bloomfield Wildcats, who picked up a hefty total of 191.5 points, although they needed almost all of them to hold off Bayfield, Colo., which finished with 183 points.
Also Saturday, Los Alamos’ Blaine Lattin made the championship round at 189 pounds before losing a tight 2-1 decision in his final bout. The Piedra Vista tournament was the first singles competition of the season for Lattin, who missed the previous weekend’s Jaguar Invitational because he was taking a college entrance exam.
Los Alamos had a shaky start to the tournament.
“(Friday) I felt pretty bad,” Hilltopper head coach Eric Sorensen said. “We went five wins, seven losses. It wasn’t a good day.”
