A long delay in the fourth game didn’t slow the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team down very much in a critical District 2AAAA match Saturday.
With Los Alamos up by double-digits in the fourth game, the lights at Española Valley’s Edward Medina Gymnasium went out due to a nearby thunderstorm. They remained off for 2-1/2 hours.
But after the delay — and a 15-minute warm-up period for both teams — the Hilltoppers finished off game four and the match, winning 19-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-14.
Los Alamos started off Saturday’s contest slowly, something that’s quickly becoming a habit for the squad, and head coach Diana Stokes didn’t want a repeat performance of that coming off the delay.
Fortunately, that didn’t happen.
With Saturday’s win, Los Alamos kept its share of the District 2AAAA lead. Los Alamos and co-leader Capital will meet Wednesday at Griffith Gymnasium for sole possession of the lead at the halfway point of the 2AAAA season.
“Capital will be a tough one,” Stokes said. “They went four games with Española (Valley), too. They’re going to be tough. They’re very scrappy.”
