What was shaping up to be a classic district battle between Nos. 1 and 2 heading in fizzled out quickly Saturday night at Griffith Gymnasium.
In a critical District 2-4A volleyball contest for both teams, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the Bernalillo Spartans met for the second time this season.
The Spartans and the Hilltoppers played a nip-and-tuck first match Sept. 28 at Bernalillo, in which Los Alamos prevailed 3-1 but the sets were close throughout. And with the Spartans trying to cling to the hope of wrenching the 2-4A title from the Hilltoppers, it seemed Saturday’s match was going to be more of the same.
Instead, however, the Hilltoppers put together a dominant second set and never looked back, winning 25-22, 25-12, 25-17.
Los Alamos, coming off one of its best matches of the season a week earlier against Capital, barely missed a beat against Bernalillo, setting up most anything it wanted to offensively.
The win moves the Hilltoppers to a spotless 5-0 in district play. The Hilltoppers can clinch a 2-4A title with a victory in any of three remaining contests.
“We’ve been really excited about how we’ve been playing in district,” Los Alamos setter Savanah Romero said. “Bernalillo’s definitely been our biggest competition, but if we keep pushing, we’ll come out on top.”
