Volleyball: LA wins 2AAAA tourney

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team could hardly be heading into state on a better note.

After going 7-1 in the District 2AAAA regular season, earning the regular season title, the Hilltoppers had to sit around for a week and wait to see who they would play in the 2AAAA championship match Saturday.

Finally, Los Alamos found out it would face the Capital Jaguars for the third time this season. And Saturday, for the third time this season, the Hilltoppers came away with a 3-0 win.

Capital, which went into Saturday’s contest with a berth in the state playoffs possibly riding on the outcome — starting this season, the second-place district finisher no longer gets an automatic bid into the postseason — hung around with Los Alamos through all three games, but Los Alamos still came away with a 25-20, 25-19, 25-19 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.

Los Alamos, which had already clinched its trip to state with the 2AAAA regular season crown, still put forth the effort it wanted to see after taking a week off and trying to get ready for the start of pool play.

Class AAAA pool play starts Wednesday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
