The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team broke into the win column last weekend with three wins in the silver bracket of the Moriarty Pinto Invitational.
Los Alamos picked up three straight wins at the Pinto tournament Friday and Saturday, including topping the host Pintos and District 2-4A rival Bernalillo to earn the bracket victory.
The Hilltoppers won’t have much time to celebrate their first three wins of the season, however, as they will take on the Pojoaque Valley Elks tonight in Jacona.
At the Pinto Invitational, Los Alamos couldn’t grab one of the top two spots in pool play Friday morning and went into the silver bracket.
But Los Alamos (3-1) bounced back to top Moriarty 3-2 Friday night. The sets were tight, with the Hilltoppers falling in set two 27-25 before rebounding in the third set to win 25-23.
Los Alamos, which won the first set handily over Moriarty, dropped the fourth set 25-18, but won the decisive final set 15-6.
In the bracket semifinals, the Hilltoppers got a decisive 3-0 win over the Estancia Bears, 25-11, 25-15, 25-14, before advancing to play Bernalillo.
