The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team gets back to action Saturday after earning a ninth-place finish in last weekend’s Rio Rancho Shootout duals meet.
Los Alamos split eight team duals contests at the event, hosted by the Rio Rancho Rams. Among Los Alamos’ key wins at the duals were victories over Class 4A schools Farmington, Santa Fe and Moriarty.
The Hilltopper will now gear up for an appearance at the Jaguar Invitational, which is hosted by District 2-4A rival Capital. This will be the Hilltoppers’ first look at Capital, which is a much-improved team this season and could give the Hilltoppers a run for their money as they seek their third consecutive district title.
The Jaguar Invitational is an individual tournament, while the tournament at Rio Rancho consisted entirely of duals contests.
