'Toppers take 6th at Academy Invite

-A A +A
By The Staff

Coming back from a layoff, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team didn’t have the showing it wanted this weekend.
Los Alamos ended up in sixth place in the 10-team Albuquerque Academy Invitational tournament. Los Alamos got some tough early draws which made it tough for some of its lineup to advance in the tournament, but it didn’t help that the team went in short-handed, either.
“Wasn’t a real good outing,” Hilltopper head coach Bob Geyer said. “There were some tough kids from 5A…and we had three kids not make weight. That doesn’t make me too happy, but it is what it is.”
The Academy tournament was the first action for Los Alamos since a tournament at Tucumcari Dec. 21, right before winter break at Los Alamos Public Schools.
While Los Alamos had regular workouts during the break, this weekend’s showing didn’t rank as one of its better outings this season.
Los Alamos had five empty weight classes at Academy, including the three that didn’t get down to their weight limits.
A pair of Hilltoppers still got to the final round, however. Brian Geyer, wrestling at 195 pounds, fell in overtime of the championship bout to Chris Collins of Manzano, one of the top performers in the state.
