Occasionally in volleyball, one team throws another team a curveball.
In Wednesday’s District 2AAAA opener, the Taos Tigers may have done that to the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.
Fortunately, there was plenty of time for the Hilltoppers to adjust.
The Tigers, who are in the middle of a rough 2008 season having won just seven games in 12 matches, wouldn’t go away in either of the first two games Wednesday. The Tigers even held a solid lead for a good portion of the second game.
But Los Alamos would eventually bounce back from its rough patch, beating Taos in three games, 25-15, 25-19, 25-9.
Taos (0-13 overall, 0-1 in 2AAAA) didn’t have much to show in the way of defense or offense in the 2AAAA debut for both schools.
But head coach Diana Stokes said, ironically, that Los Alamos struggled to adjust to a non-quality squad.
“The hard part, we’ve been playing tough teams and we’re always on our heels,” Stokes said. “(Wednesday) we had a chance to do some stuff…but it’s like we got back on our heels again.”
Taos, once a solid 2AAAA presence which has fallen on hard times in recent seasons, was only able to get about half its balls over the net once during the first game.
