Peñasco entered the championships on a roll after knocking off previously-unbeaten Coronado High School 25-23, 25-22, 22-25, 25-7 in the District 5-2A championship game Nov. 7 at Coronado. The victory likely earned the Lady Panthers their ninth-seed in the Class 2A state volleyball tournament.
“It was a wonderful season,” Dulce Coach Kathleen Salazar-Valdez said. ”It had to come to an end. We just couldn’t get nothing going.”
McCurdy dominated the match as Tierra Encantada had trouble receiving serve against the Lady Bobcats. Most points ended with an ace serve or with the Alacranes unable to get the ball back over the net more than a couple of times.
“They want structure and discipline,” Sanchez said. “As coach I have to give that to them because they want it. A coach has to inspire their players. That’s my job. I believe in them. That’s why I’m here.”
Twenty or so miles apart in the upper tier of Rio Arriba County, the Escalante High School and Dulce High School volleyball teams are both off to quick starts in the 2018 season. The Lobos and the Hawks are both 3-0 so far this season. Despite their close proximity to each other, neither will meet during the regular season and will compete in different districts.
Wednesday evening the Lady Sundevils volleyball team fell to the Los Alamos Hilltopper 3-0. This match was originally scheduled to be played in Española but a threat of violence forced the temporary closure of Española Valley High School so the match location was switched.
This match had everything good about volleyball – spike kills, tip kills, dinks, digs, back sets, service aces and great teamwork…
