Volleyball: LA slips to 1-1 in district season, has crucial match Wednesday night vs. Española Valley

By The Staff

The last time the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team lost a District 2-4A contest, it was to Española Valley in 2008.
The head coach of the Sundevils at the time was Garry Maskaly, who now helms Los Alamos’ program.
But Saturday night, the Hilltoppers fell 3-1 to the Santa Fe Demons, dropping them to 1-1 in 2-4A play.
Now, to avoid falling into a big hole in the district race, the Hilltoppers (6-6 overall) will have to find a way to trip up Española Valley Wednesday night.
Española Valley (8-5), coming into the district season, seemed poised to be Los Alamos’ biggest challenger as it attempts to claim its fifth consecutive 2-4A title. But with Saturday’s loss against Santa Fe (6-8, 1-1) and a road date with the Capital Jaguars (5-7, 0-1) this weekend, the Hilltoppers  may not be able to afford a loss Wednesday.
Prior to Wednesday’s match, the Hilltoppers will host Sandia Prep (4-8) tonight in a nondistrict contest. Sandia Prep got off to a slow start this season but has rebounded to win three of its last four.
Los Alamos, meanwhile, is on a bit of a slide, having lost three of its last five outings, a slide that’s somewhat surprising after it blasted Moriarty and Bernalillo before being swept by Albuquerque Academy Thursday and the loss to Santa Fe Saturday.
