Handling low light arena shot with Spotlights

Was at a State wrestling tournament this past weekend and was trying to shoot individuals during introductions. During introductions the lights in the arena are shut off and as the competitors are introduced as a spotlight is placed on them. Competitors are lined up across from each and as one is introduced he goes to the center of the mat to await his opponent to shake hands. Was having difficulty metering and shooting this because of low light all around and high intense spotlight on the competitors. Had a few come out okay but not as well as I would have liked. I was not on the floor...I was shooting with a D700 70-200mm 2.8 lens from the stands. Thoughts on how to handle this situation?
