ESPAÑOLA — Being on the road, going into hostile territory and having to duke it out with an arch-rival for the top spot in the district race would seem to be a daunting task.
But Wednesday night, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team made it look easy.
Los Alamos, facing off against the Española Valley Sundevils for the early lead in the district standings, used a late surge in the first set and dominated the second set to put Española Valley back on its heels. Los Alamos’ final set was sloppy, but it was still good enough to earn a 25-16, 25-10, 25-22 win at Edward Medina Gymnasium.
With the victory, the Hilltoppers upped their District 2-4A mark to 3-0 and can finish the first half of district play on top if they can knock off Capital at home Saturday.
Española Valley, which often gives Los Alamos a decent run for its money in the 2-4A race, had gotten its district season off to a good start as well, picking up wins over Capital and Santa Fe. It was also getting back the bulk of its players back from suspension, but heading into the contest, Los Alamos wasn’t sure who would be back for Española Valley and who wouldn’t, complicating the Hilltoppers’ task of preparation.
