On a neutral court, after a long, grueling weekend, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers played tough against the Las Vegas Robertson Cardinal volleyball team.
So Tuesday, the Hilltoppers were expecting quite a bit better showing than it got against the Cardinals.
Los Alamos led in every game Tuesday, holding late leads in the first two, but fell to Robertson, 3-0.
In the first game, Los Alamos held a seemingly-comfortable 22-18 lead and had two game points before falling. In the second game, Los Alamos led 20-17 at one point but couldn’t hold on to that lead either.
