The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team will have to go the long way on the road to the state Class AAAA championship this season.

The Hilltoppers failed to win Pool C in Thursday morning’s pool play round. They will play a first-round match at 5:30 p.m. this evening.

Due to a rules dispute, it’s still unknown what team Los Alamos will face tonight. It will either be Piedra Vista, the second finisher in Pool A or Silver, that pool’s third-place finisher.

Moriarty was the top finisher in Pool C this morning. Los Alamos, the No. 3 seed in the tournament, split pool play games with both sixth-seeded Moriarty and 11th-seeded Volcano Vista.
