    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.
