'Toppers given No. 11 seed for state

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team earned a very low seed heading into this week’s Class 4A state playoffs.
Los Alamos enters Thursday’s pool play round as a No. 11 seed. It will be matched up in Pool C with No. 3 Artesia and No. 6 Albuquerque Academy.
The Hilltoppers (13-8) finished as the runners-up in a tough District 2 regular season race, one which included fifth-seed Española Valley, a team that could be a sleeper in the playoffs should it earn some momentum.
That didn’t seem to sway the seeding and selection committee this year. The 4A playoff brackets were released Sunday.
Although it will enter as the No. 11 seed, Los Alamos was happy to get the opportunity to participate.
“They all watched the bracket announcements (Sunday) and everyone was really excited,” said Hilltopper head coach Robin Reynolds, who will be leading Los Alamos into the playoffs for the first time in his career. “We’re happy to be in at 11. In my bracket, I had us at No. 10 with Los Lunas not having a win over a top 10 team. But holy cow, it’s nice to be in the tournament.”
