The Los Alamos Hilltoppers Volleyball team opened District 4A play in Moriarty October 2. The five set match would prove to fall Los Alamos way. Los Alamos won sets 1 and 3 while the Pintos took sets 2 and 4. The 5th set belonged to the Hilltoppers as they jumped out to a 7-1 lead and finished the fight.
The 5th set was led with strong serving and hitting from Eden Schmierer. Elise Olivas kept the offense calm and directed a solid overall performance. The defense from Kyla Sandoval, Gabby Duran and Gracie Swensen kept on target passes coming for the LA Topper hitters led by Natalie Gallegos and Sophia Salazar.
Up next for the Hilltoppers will be Espanola Valley on October 9th at home in LA.
