Ortiz awarded a 2013 roster spot with Lobos

New Los Alamos Hilltopper head volleyball coach Robin Reynolds was as surprised as anyone when he heard the news.
Attending a conference at the University of New Mexico, Lobo head coach Jeff Nelson announced that a former Hilltopper would be receiving a roster spot for the next year.
“The coach announced that Danielle had made it through tryouts,” Reynolds said. “He said that she needed to start coming to practices regularly, because she’s going to be on the team.”
The player in question was Danielle Ortiz, one of the top defensive players in Class 4A during her career with the Hilltoppers.
Ortiz, Los Alamos’ standout libero, will join the Lobos as a walk-on for the 2013 season.
Before she does that, however, she said she’s got a lot to work on, specifically getting back in playing shape.
“This week I just started and I’m really sore,” Ortiz said. “I started lifting weights and running. I have to keep that up until we start practice. It’s hard work, but it’ll be worth it.”
Oritz got on UNM’s radar earlier in her career. She played for a club volleyball team that was run partially by members of the Lobo coaching staff.
