Volleyball: Toppers to open season vs. Pojoaque Saturday

By Mike Cote

An impressive showing during the summer has the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team filled with confidence going into the 2011 season.
But with a tough early season schedule, the Hilltoppers could well need all the confidence they can muster.
Los Alamos opens its 2011 campaign Saturday afternoon at home. It will host a very tough customer, the Pojoaque Elks, to kick off the season.
Pojoaque, one of the premier programs in the state, has won two straight Class 3A championships, three of the last five 3A titles, and is heading into this year as the top-ranked team in the classification. As if that wasn’t reason enough for the Hilltoppers to be wary, Pojoaque’s teams garner a tremendous amount of satisfaction in dropping the Hilltoppers in any sport they can.
But Los Alamos feels it’s as prepared for Saturday’s season opener as it has been for any season opener in recent memory.
“This is the hardest I’ve ever had a team work over the summer,” Hilltopper head coach Garry Maskaly said. “The team camps this summer, we did really well. In that sense, this is the strongest we’ve come into a season, by far.”
