The Los Alamos wrestling team scored a pair dual meet wins Wednesday against District 2-5A foes Del Norte and Española Valley.
Los Alamos beat Del Norte in a close dual, 40-38, and then took down Española Valley, 57-24.
Del Norte also beat Española Valley, 54-24.
“If I was satisfied I’d be a horrible coach,” Los Alamos head coach James Hatt said. “You always want more, but they did good and fought had. I really have no complaints.”
The two wins improved Los Alamos’s District 2-5A record to 3-1. Last week, Capital beat Los Alamos by nine points, 45-36, but Los Alamos took down Bernalillo, 45-33.
The Del Norte dual was a big one for Los Alamos, needing a big win to keep its District 2-5A dual meet championship hopes alive. Three Del Norte pins in the last three matches, however, all but closed that possibility.
“Last time we beat Del Norte by two points so it’s still a dog fight there,” Hatt said.
The match went back-and-forth early before some forfeits put Los Alamos ahead.
Del Norte started the match with a pin at 138 pounds, but Damien Sundby tied the dual with a third-period pin at 145 pounds.
