In dispatching one of its toughest foes with a bang Wednesday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team earned a victory in its district opener.
Los Alamos was dominant for two-plus sets and pulled things together well enough to close out the third set against the Bernalillo Spartans.
The big hitters upfront were again on their game for the Hilltoppers, outgunning the Spartans at the net, while the Spartans’ biggest weapons had relatively quiet nights.
The Hilltoppers were dominant in sets one and two, taking those 25-10 and 25-12.
The Spartans regrouped after falling behind early in the final set, but the Hilltoppers, who started off the third set much the same way they had the first two, cooled off considerably, but still prevailed to take a 25-20 decision and claim the sweep.
“In our first two games, our energy was really up,” Los Alamos libero Danielle Ortiz said. “We started off with a good lead, but in the third game we were a little relaxed. We started to let up a little bit, but we pulled through and we finished on a good note.”
