The two top teams in the District 2-4A volleyball standings will face off tonight when Los Alamos’ Hilltoppers will take on Española Valley’s Sundevils.
That match is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Edward Medina Gymnasium in Española.
Heading into that contest, the Hilltoppers and Sundevils are tied for the 2-4A lead. Both teams sport 2-0 district records.
Española Valley, which has been Los Alamos’ toughest district opponent for the last several seasons, will be heading into tonight’s contest on a roll. It has won three straight matches, including a 3-2 victory over Santa Fe Sept. 28 and a 3-1 win over Capital Saturday.
The Sundevils (6-6 overall) haven’t yet grabbed what one could call a signature win on their season. They were swept Sept. 17 by Farmington and Sept. 20 by Albuquerque Academy, although they’re .500 against 4A competition this season.
However, a win tonight over the third-ranked Hilltoppers would certainly qualify as a signature victory.
For Los Alamos (11-3, 2-0), it could land squarely in the driver’s seat of the district with a win tonight. Then it would have to beat only Capital (6-7, 0-1) Saturday at home to finish with a spotless record in the first round of district play and look forward to three of its final four 2-4A contests at home.
