BERNALILLO – In what figures to be a highly competitive District 2-4A season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team wanted to make a statement to begin district play.
And while their statement took a little longer to get started than they’d hoped, the statement was delivered nonetheless.
Los Alamos got off to a rocky start Wednesday night against the Bernalillo Spartans, falling into a sizeable hole early, but dug itself out quickly and took a 3-0 victory.
Behind the hot hands of middles Claire Stewart and Sam Fenner, Los Alamos picked up a 25-20 win in the first set. Los Alamos then breezed through the second set to win 25-11 and held on through a mini-comeback late by the Spartans in set three to win that one 25-16.
After a disappointing showing last weekend at Rio Rancho, Los Alamos didn’t want to get involved in a long, drawn-out battle against the Spartans, who have shown a knack in recent years for giving the Hilltoppers headaches.
“We knew we needed to work hard this game,” Los Alamos outside hitter Brianna Montaño said. “But we came together as a group, played hard, played aggressive. That’s what won this game.”
