Volleyball: LA tops Spartans in three

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team made light work of the visiting Bernalillo Spartans Saturday night.

The Hilltoppers picked up a pair of quick victories in the opening two games, then held on in game three of Saturday’s District 2AAAA match at Griffith Gymnasium to pick up the sweep.

The 25-15, 25-9, 25-16 win upped the Hilltoppers’ district mark to 6-0, which clinched the district-runner up spot for the squad with just two matches remaining in the regular season.

Bernalillo, which has limped through the 2008 season, fell to 0-14 overall, 0-4 in 2AAAA. On the season, the Spartans have won just seven games.

They were unable to add to that total Saturday against the district-leading Hilltoppers.

Bernalillo actually jumped out to early leads in both games one and three Saturday against historically slow-starting Los Alamos.

Los Alamos was out of alignment early in the first game which nabbed Bernalillo a 4-3 edge. In the third game, Bernalillo held a 2-1 advantage early on.

Taylor Ealey, a junior middle hitter for the Hilltoppers, had a match-high seven spike kills, including four in the third game, along with two third game block kills.
