SANTA FE — Coming off a less-than-stellar performance Wednesday against Bernalillo, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team got its ship righted in a hurry Saturday.
The Hilltoppers earned a convincing shutout victory over a much-improved Santa Fe Demon program Saturday at Toby Roybal Gymnasium. Even after getting off to a rocky start in the second set, the Hilltoppers recovered quickly and turned a 6-1 deficit into an 8-7 lead in the space of just two side-outs.
Los Alamos won Saturday’s District 2AAAA contest over Santa Fe 25-11, 25-19, 25-16 to improve its district mark to 2-0 and win its eighth-straight match.
Saturday, Los Alamos made things easier for itself from the get-go, displaying an improved service game, something that it struggled with Wednesday.
Hilltopper head coach Garry Maskaly said that instead of serving it straight to a waiting defensive specialist, the team was forcing the Demons’ back line to move to catch up to serves.
That little adjustment made a difference.
“We’ve been practicing that a lot,” Hilltopper setter Savanah Romero said. “I think we did that. Our serving has struggled for awhile now, but I think it’s getting back.”
