Heading into its first tournament of the season today, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team was looking to get some momentum going Thursday night.
And the Hilltoppers managed just that.
The Hilltoppers, playing a tough Albuquerque Academy squad, came from behind in both the first and second sets Thursday, then cruised to big victory in the third set, earning a 25-18, 28-26, 25-12.
Los Alamos fell behind quickly in each of the first two sets, trailing Academy’s Chargers 6-1 right off the bat in the opening set and was down as late as 18-13 before making an impressive comeback in set two.
“It was a huge victory for us,” Los Alamos head coach Garry Maskaly said. “It’s something we really wanted as a team. It’s something that could help define us for the rest of the season.”
Los Alamos (1-1) traveled to the Moriarty Pinto Invitational today. Los Alamos, which is the second-seeded team in the tournament behind Class 5A Sandia, was scheduled to face Sandia Prep, Tularosa and District 2-4A foe Bernalillo in this morning’s pool play round.
Against Academy, Los Alamos was looking to bounce back from a rough outing last Saturday. Los Alamos was dropped at home by next-door neighbor Pojoaque in four sets.
