Atomic City Update: LAHS volleyball shows signs of big progress

-A A +A
By Phil Scherer

One of the most important things I look for when I watch high school sports is improvement. Sometimes, improvement can be small, and other times it can be obvious, but any type of improvement is important. 

When I watch the Los Alamos High School volleyball team this year, the improvement is clear. Last year, the young players were often unsure of their responsibilities and made far too many errors in attacking, blocking and serving. This year, with everyone on the team a year older, the confidence is higher, the skill level has been raised and everyone knows their own individual responsibilities. 

Now, it’s only a matter of time before these improvements show up in the win column. The team currently has a 1-3 record, losing three games against St. Michael’s, Santa Fe and St. Pius after winning the opening match of the year against Bloomfield. 

However, this is not a team you can judge fairly by looking at their record. Tuesday night’s match against St. Pius was one of the most exciting matches that will be played all season in New Mexico volleyball, with the teams trading points and sets all night. The match was decided in extra points in the final set, and the atmosphere was electric.
