A couple of positives happened for the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team this weekend at the Zia Classic.
Los Alamos finished third in the tournament, played in Roswell, by topping Lubbock (Texas) Christian in its final match Saturday afternoon 3-1 and Los Alamos got another good look at the top-ranked Goddard Rockets Saturday morning.
The Rockets, the No. 2 team in the state according to the most recent coaches’ poll, took the Hilltoppers in three games in the tournament semifinals, winning the match 25-18, 25-23, 25-23.
Despite the loss, Los Alamos head coach Garry Maskaly was pretty pleased with how the weekend went.
“The positive side of the loss to Goddard is that the girls see how close we are,” he said. “We’re only a couple of points away from them. With a win, the girls would think ‘oh, we can beat them’ and they might not work as hard.”
Following the loss Saturday morning, Los Alamos came out a little sluggish against Lubbock Christian in the third-place contest, dropping the first game 25-19. The Hilltoppers turned things around quickly, however, reeling off three straight wins, 25-13, 25-15, 25-22.
