There were some bumps in the road with the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team’s lineup shifts Wednesday, but head coach Garry Maskaly is hoping the rest of the season will be smooth going.
Wednesday night, the Hilltoppers hosted the St. Michael’s Horsemen, who so far have had an up-and-down season. Keeping true to form, the Horsemen had an up-and-down contest, picking up victories in the first and third sets to keep the pressure on the Hilltoppers.
The Hilltoppers, however, easily won sets two and four, then came back from a 7-5 deficit midway through the 15-point fifth set to top the Horsemen 3-2.
Los Alamos’ set scores Wednesday were 24-26, 25-17, 23-25, 25-10, 15-11.
There were huge momentum swings throughout the contest, with Los Alamos seemingly well in control of set two before St. Mike’s came back late in the set – too late, however, to make a serious run. That mini-run late in the second set seemed to give St. Mike’s momentum heading into the third set, when it went up 20-8.
Then, in another wild swing, the Hilltoppers reeled off 13 of the next 14 point to cut the lead to 21-20. The Horsemen would eventually win the set 25-23, but they struggled to recover from the run.
