Volleyball: LA upends Roswell to take victory at Zia

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

 

This season, the Los Alamos Hilltoppper volleyball team has been desperately seeking a win that was going to jump-start this season.

That win could well have just happened.

In the final of the Zia Classic Invitational Tournament in Roswell, Los Alamos stunned the Roswell Coyotes to take the tournament title. Los Alamos held off for a big set one victory, then crushed the Coyotes in the second set.

The third set got hairy at the end, but the Hilltoppers held on to earn a 25-23, 25-14, 25-23 victory and grab a big early season win.

"We're exhausted, but we're excited," Los Alamos head coach Garry Maskalysaid. "It was a fun match."

Roswell, which actually topped Los Alamos in straight sets during pool play Friday, is the fifth-ranked team in the state according to the most recent statewide coaches' poll.

However, after falling to Roswell in pool play, Los Alamos made several adjustments, including plugging Alicia Rendon back in as outside hitter, a spot she performed well in earlier last week in a loss to Sue Cleveland.

Maskaly said the adjustments, as well as a big defensive effort from his entire rotation, made a huge difference in the championship.
