LA falls to St. Pius in opening match

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

ALBUQUERQUE — If new Los Alamos head coach Robin Reynolds was looking to ease his way into the captain’s chair, he picked the wrong teams to start the season with.
Reynolds made his head coaching debut Tuesday night for the Hilltopper volleyball team. His assignment wasn’t an enviable one, either, as the Hilltoppers faced off against longtime rival and defending Class 4A champion St. Pius X.
Los Alamos, which wants to implement some new wrinkles in its offense this season, didn’t get much of a chance to do so, with the Sartans’ hard hitting and solid serving keeping the Hilltoppers off-balance for a good portion of the night.
The Sartans would go on to win Tuesday’s match 25-20, 25-16, 14-25, 25-13 at St. Sebastian Gymnasium.
“Their mental toughness is probably their biggest thing,” said Reynolds of the Sartans, who improved to 2-0 with Tuesday night’s win. “There are no ragged edges. They’re hard to exploit.”
Los Alamos did have some success hitting to the outside, particularly with Brianna Montaño and Sierra Foley on the left side of its offense.
