The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team got into the win column at Albuquerque Academy Thursday.
Los Alamos held on through three close sets to knock off Academy’s Chargers on the road, winning in straight sets, 25-20, 25-23, 25-23.
Grabbing their first win of the season was a good way for the Hilltoppers to enter this weekend’s Moriarty Invitational. The Hilltoppers had, among others, second-ranked Class AAAAA squad Las Cruces as a pool play opponent this morning.
Los Alamos continues play at Moriarty through Saturday.
Prior to Thursday’s victory, the Hilltoppers had dropped their first two season contests, both on the road, to St. Pius X and Pojoaque.
Despite those two losses, the Hilltoppers were ranked sixth in the most recent New Mexico High School Coaches Association Class AAAA poll. This weekend’s tournament host, Moriarty, was the unanimous choice as the top team in the state in that poll.
Albuquerque Academy was rated tied for seventh — along with Piedra Vista — heading into Thursday’s contest.
