The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team was thumped in the opening set of its road match Thursday night at Albuquerque Academy.
The Hilltoppers would stick much closer with Academy’s Chargers the rest of the way, but would still go on to lose in three sets.
The Chargers held on in the second and third sets to win 25-7, 25-23, 25-21.
Thursday’s loss snapped a two-game win streak for the Hilltoppers, who swept both Moriarty and Bernalillo. However, the Hilltoppers (6-5) are just 2-3 in their last five outings.
Academy’s Stephanie Sun had 15 spike kills to lead the Chargers (8-4) to their sixth win in seven contests. Andi Lowe finished with 9 spike kills.
Los Alamos will take on Santa Fe (5-8) in its second District 2-4A match of the season tonight. Game time is 6:30 p.m.
Santa Fe lost a tight 3-2 decision at Española Valley (7-5, 1-0) to open district play Wednesday.
