LA rolls in final three sets to top Horsemen

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

It’s not often this season the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team will be able to play in front of the home crowd.
Wednesday night, Los Alamos made the most of its opportunity.
Shaking off a slow start, Los Alamos got into a groove in the second set against the St. Michael’s Horsemen. Los Alamos sailed through sets two and three before St. Michael’s made a valiant defensive stand in set four.
But that wouldn’t be enough for the Horsemen to keep their upset bid alive, as the Hilltoppers prevailed 18-25, 25-11, 25-10, 25-22 at Griffith Gymnasium.
Much like a night earlier against Pojoaque Valley, Los Alamos got off to a rocky start against St. Michael’s. Just prior to start time, Hilltopper head coach Robin Reynolds found out his normal starting libero, Allyssa Tedder, would be out sick for the match.
Instead of Tedder, Los Alamos had to rely on backup defensive specialist Venessa Martinez to be its floor general.
The Hilltopper communication lagged in the first set – several routine serves from St. Michael’s hit the floor untouched and passing was suspect throughout – but Martinez helped right the ship toward the end of the opening set.
