The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball program isn’t wasting any time getting its fan base jazzed for the upcoming season. In fact, the Hilltoppers aren’t even waiting for the end of this school year.
Los Alamos will host a 2013 Review-Preview Friday night at Griffith Gymnasium.
The event is exactly what it sounds like: a look back at the past and a look ahead to the future.
The highlight of the night will be the alumni game at 7:30 p.m. Several past Hilltoppers, including soon-to-be graduates of the high school, are scheduled to take part.
“We’re making more of a volleyball night for everybody,” new Hilltopper head coach Robin Reynolds said.
Among about 10 alumni Reynolds said is expected to take part in the alumni contest is senior Danielle Ortiz. Ortiz, one of the top defensive players in recent school history, was recently awarded a walk-on roster spot at the University of New Mexico for next season.
Los Alamos had a successful 2012, reaching the Class 4A semifinals for the third consecutive season. Unfortunately, Los Alamos was eliminated from the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season by St. Pius X.
Prior to the alumni game, Los Alamos’ returning high school and middle school players will be in action, followed by a game featuring graduating senior boys from LAHS.
