The Pojoaque Valley Elkettes made it five in a row at the state Class 3A volleyball tournament Saturday.
Pojoaque Valley waltzed through the Class 3A field last week, dropping just two sets in direct elimination play to earn the 2013 state championship. Its title run was capped with a 3-1 victory over the Ruidoso Warriors.
The Elkettes (20-4) have owned the 3A postseason since 2009 and haven’t been pushed even as far as a fifth set in the championship match since that time.
This season, the Elkettes won their third title under a different head coach. Eric Zamora steered the team to the championship in 2013, while Joey Trujillo did likewise in 2012 and Brian Ainsworth in 2011 — Ainsworth left Pojoaque Valley to coach at Cleveland, which finished as the 5A runner-up.
