Daily Dig – Sep 15

Will the real #2 please come forward?

Looks like #2 Tularosa beat #2 Estancia (Sept 8 NMHSCA 2A polls) in three straight sets on Tuesday night. An impressive win considering Tulie lost their setter, Carli Jo Brill at the Roswell tournament last weekend. Up next for the Brill-less Wildcats is the Mountain Top tournament in Cloudcroft, NM. This tournament should be a good one.
