Daily Dig – Sep 29

Mayfield's Marcela Hanroit

Storm shuts down La Cueva

Cleveland shut down the Lady Bears on Tuesday night, 25-14, 25-8, 25-21. Courtney Lawson had 12 kills and no errors, Marissa Gonzales had three kills, three digs and the big girls in the middle, Sara Hattis and Cassie House finished the night with 10 kills apiece.

St. Pius X thrashes Sandia

St. Pius had little problem defeating a depleted Sandia team, 25-16, 25-14, 25-17. After colliding at last week’s Albuquerque Academy game, two of the Lady Matadors had take the mandatory week off for possible concussion. Look for Sandia to try to bounce back against Cibola on Thursday.

The Lady Sartans have a big challenge ahead as they take on district foe Albuquerque Academy next Tuesday, October 2. This match features No 1. St. Pius and the No. 2 Chargers in a battle for the best 4A program in the state.

Mayfield tops Las Cruces in four

The Lady Trojans had issues at the service line on Tuesday night;  lucky for them Las Cruces was just a little more inconsistent. A combined total of 36 service errors were committed by the teams (Mayfield 17, Las Cruces 19)  in Mayfield’s win, 21-25, 29-27, 25-19, 25-18.

Impressive in the win was the front row defense; Allyson Lucht, Marcela Hanroit and Callie Chambers all got better as the match progressed.

Tularosa coming home

With construction complete in their home gym, The Lady Cats get to practice in their own pad. Having practiced in the elementary gym over the summer, playing in their own gym will be one less distraction. All this just in time for Carli Jo Brill to make her return from a concussion suffered in Roswell several weeks back.

Tulie hosts Tatum tomorrow, at 5:30 PM, and begins district play next Thursday at Cloudcroft.

Franklin victorious in El Paso

The Cougars handed Coronado a loss in District 1-5A action last night in El Paso. Winning, 25-20, 25-15, 16-25, 25-21 and taking over sole possession of second place. Naili Woleper was on fire, racking up 20 kills and 18 assists.

  1. I agree with South. Artesia should probably be number one. They tore threw a lot of powerful teams like Gadsden , Sue Cleveland , Pojaque and St Pius at the Rio Rancho volleyfest.
    Academy has been padding their win stats with cupcake teams. The only one that has been ranked in the top 5 is Sandia who is ranked fifth in 5A. Academy had to pull out a 15-13 win in the fifth set with only 7 of Sandias team members not injured and able to play.
    Strength of schedule should mean something. In the last 2 weeks St Pius has played all 5 of the top 5 teams in 5A, (beating Eldorado,La Cueva and Sandia) plus the 3rd in 4A, and the 1st in 3A. They have won sets against all of them except Artesia.
    Guess tuesdays game will be exciting.

  2. Academy beat La Cueva, Pius and finally Eldorado in the championship match in 3 sets at the Metro Tournament. Additionally, Academy won against Sandia (a great team) and against Los Alamos. None of these are “cupcake teams”.
