Even bringing in a whole new school couldn’t change Lisa Villareal’s luck inside Griffith Gymnasium.
Villareal, the head coach of the Volcano Vista Hawks and formerly the head coach of the Española Valley Sundevils, has seen her teams struggle far more often than not in their visits to Griffith Gymnasium. Tuesday night was no exception.
The host Los Alamos Hilltoppers jumped out to a 16-2 lead just a little more than five minutes into Tuesday’s contest. Other than a mid-third quarter push by the Hawks, one which fizzled out quickly, the Hilltoppers bulldozed their way to a 68-35 victory.
Los Alamos, which struggled for much of the early part of the season putting points on the board, had no such problems Tuesday. Using one of its best outside shooting performances of the season, Los Alamos got Volcano Vista to overextend its defense early and did virtually anything it wanted to on the offensive end.
“I think we came off pretty strong,” Hilltopper guard Kristina Radosevich said afterward. “We’re really motivated right now. We still need to make some improvements, but we’re getting there one step at a time.”
