Toppers rally to beat Sandia Prep

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

One set of Sundevils down. One set of Sundevils to go.
Coming back after struggling in a District 2-4A road contest Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team couldn’t seem to find its rhythm until the very end of its contest against Class 3A Sandia Prep.
That rhythm, however, carried the Hilltoppers to a 3-1 win over the Sundevils Tuesday night at Griffith Gymnasium.
Los Alamos trailed 15-10 in the fourth set of its home contest with Sandia Prep holding serve and was down 16-13, but reeled off 12 straight points to win, 11 of them with veteran Erin Kirk at the service line.
Samantha Fenner and Brianna Montaño had block kills during Kirk’s run at the service line to help secure a 25-18, 20-25, 25-22, 25-16 victory.
“I just trust in what I’ve been trained and just not think about it,” said Kirk of her string of 11 straight points, which came just moments after the Sundevils had taken a five-point lead and seemed to have the momentum on their side. “Just get a consistent serve and a consistent toss every point.”
The big showing at the service line came on the heels of two subpar serve performances in consecutive losses to Albuquerque Academy and Santa Fe, the latter knocking Los Alamos out of the top spot in the District 2-4A race.
