Daily Dig – Sep 9

Metro Tourney Continues

Looks like St. Pius defeated West Mesa (3-0), Albuquerque Academy beat Volcano Vista (3-0), La Cueva cruised by Higland (3-0), and Cibola handled Atrisco (3-0). I’m not sure what the scores for the rest of the matches were, but the match info for today has been updated.

In somewhat of a shocker, 3A Hope Christian brought down Eldorado to progress into the championship bracket to face St. Pius.

“Slow Starts Cost Lobos”

The Comcast/Sheraton Invite begins tonight at UNM and according to the article in today’s Journal, the Lobo’s “ho-hum” 3-2 record, is the fault of slow starts against opponents–they’ve dropped four of five opening sets. Not sure if 3-2 is “ho-hum” considering Lisa Meeter and Jade Michaelson, the core of last year’s team, have departed.

UNM faces UC Irvine tonight at 7:30.
