The Española Valley Sundevils wrapped up the District 2-4A regular season volleyball championship Saturday night and they did so at the expense of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.
Los Alamos took on its toughest rival Saturday night in Griffith Gymnasium with high hopes coming off a 3-2 loss in the valley earlier this month, a match the Hilltoppers trailed 2-0 in after two sets but came roaring back to nearly steal it from the Sundevils.
However, as Hilltopper head coach Robin Reynolds noted prior to Saturday’s match, his team had to cut down on the big number of unforced errors it committed at Española Valley.
But the Hilltoppers couldn’t shake that bug.
Los Alamos, which never got its offense on track and had a spotty performance from the service line, another one of its important weapons, fell in straight sets to the Sundevils, 25-22, 25-19, 25-22.
“We gave them 10 points in each set,” Reynolds said afterward. “When you give them that many, they can take advantage.”
Española Valley, meanwhile, earned the regular season district title, the accompanying automatic bid into the state Class 4A tournament, scheduled for next month, and the No. 1 overall seed in next week’s district tournament with the victory.
