LA will take on Moriarty, Gallup in pool play round

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

It might be a good thing for the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team that clocks were turned back an hour this weekend.
The Hilltoppers will have to play bright and early Thursday to start the Class 4A playoffs.
Los Alamos and the rest of the Class 4A field will open the state tournament at 8 a.m. Thursday. The tournament is set for the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
As expected, the Hilltoppers earned the No. 3 overall seed in pool play. They are the top seed in Pool C, which also includes sixth-seeded Moriarty and 11th-seeded Gallup.
Los Alamos will play Gallup at 8 a.m. Thursday in its first pool play contest, then, after Moriarty and Gallup face off, Los Alamos will take on Moriarty’s Pintos.
For almost all of the 2011 regular season, the Hilltoppers were ranked No. 3 in the state coaches’ poll, behind defending state champ Artesia and last year’s runner-up, St. Pius X. Artesia was awarded the No. 1 overall seed, while St. Pius got the No. 2 seed.
“Not too much of a surprise,” said Hilltopper head coach Garry Maskaly, noting that fourth-seeded Albuquerque Academy, fifth-seeded Piedra Vista and Moriarty were all hovering around the same area in the coaches’ poll as they were ranked.
