There weren’t a whole lot of surprises in the 12-team volleyball tournament when the Class AAAA state playoffs schedule was announced.
The top four teams entering pool play, which gets going Thursday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Albuquerque, were the top four teams throughout the season according to the New Mexico High School Coaches Association weekly polls.
The Los Alamos Hilltoppers were tabbed as the No. 3 seed entering pool play.
They will take part in Pool C along with sixth-seeded Moriarty and 11th-seeded Volcano Vista.
“I was hoping for two, but 2-to-3, that’s a good place to be sitting in,” Hilltopper head coach Garry Maskaly said. “If we were to go to the finals, we wouldn’t face Goddard until the end.”
In seeding for the tournament, the Hiltoppers trail only the No. 1 Goddard Rockets and No. 2 St. Pius X Sartans.
The winners in each of the four pools — the top seeds in each pool are Goddard, St. Pius, Los Alamos and fourth-seeded Albuquerque Academy — will play in Friday morning’s quarterfinal round. The other teams will square off in an opening-round match for the right to advance to the quarterfinals Thursday evening.
