ESPAÑOLA – Just two sets in, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team looked like it might be finished.
But two sets later, nothing had been determined as the Hilltoppers mounted an impressive comeback against their arch-rivals.
Unfortunately, the comeback would come just short as Los Alamos lost a key District 2-4A contest in the valley.
Los Alamos dropped the first two sets Wednesday night against Española Valley’s Sundevils, 27-25, 25-15, before mounting its comeback. Los Alamos took sets three and four 25-20, 25-22 before Española Valley won the deciding fifth set 15-13.
The second set started out as a disaster for the Hilltoppers, who fell behind quickly 16-3. Hilltopper head coach Robin Reynolds, making his first career appearance at Edward Medina Gymnasium, said he was surprised his team struggled early in that set.
“We were just miscommunicating in the back row,” he said. “We were most confident in that rotation. We did a trial rotation with that and that was our best point-getting against Academy. We just had trouble with our communication.”
