Despite a clean sweep at the hands of the Pojoaque Elks Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team saw some good things at Jacona Gymnasium.
Los Alamos fell to Pojoaque, a former District 2AAA foe and a possible contender for the AAA title this season, 25-18, 25-23, 25-20. However, the Hilltoppers had as good a defensive showing as they did against St. Pius X Wednesday, maybe better.
“We did some good things (Saturday),” Los Alamos head coach Diana Stokes said. “We were digging the ball really well. Each of the girls had some really good digs.”
Additionally, the team was able to put up some better offensive numbers than it had against the Sartans in their opener — Los Alamos dropped the first two sets to the Sartans but bounced back to win the next two before losing a close fifth set — with its top four hitters combining for 21 kills.
Taylor Ealey got rolling Saturday, picking up 10 kills, while Sabrina Little added five and Alexandra Nichols and Oksana Tretiak chipped in three apiece.
Setter Jessica Stokes gave good support to the offense Saturday, handing out 19 assists.
The defense, meanwhile may have even faced a tougher challenge against Pojoaque than it did against St. Pius.
