LA shuts out Capital Saturday

-A A +A

Volleyball: Downs, Kirk and Rendon have big nights as LA goes to 4-0

By Mike Cote

The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team upped its record to a spotless 4-0 in District 2-4A play with a big win over Capital Saturday night.
Los Alamos played one of its most complete matches of the season to sweep Capital Jaguars 25-15, 25-9, 25-19 at Griffith Gymnasium.
The win put Los Alamos squarely in the driver’s seat with just four district contests remaining on the season. Los Alamos has lost just one set, its first of district play and has now won 12 straight sets against 2-4A opponents.
“We’ve been working on a lot of little things,” said Hilltopper head coach Garry Maskaly. “Tonight, our offense was a bit more diverse. We moved Erin Kirk to the outside against Santa Fe and we’ve been able to play her more on the outside when she’d been playing on the right…that something we’ve been working on this week.”
Kirk and Carli Downs teamed up to put up big double blocks on Capital’s outside hitters. Downs had five block kills in the contest, which threw a monkey wrench into the Jaguars’ offense.
The Hilltoppers (13-3 overall) were dominant throughout the contest even though the Jaguars (6-9 overall, 0-3 in 2-4A) played relatively mistake-free volleyball and served the ball pretty well.
