Pojoaque volleyball finished its usual regular-season run through the District 2-3A schedule on Wednesday night, sweeping Robertson 25-13, 25-13, 25-16, at Ben Lujan Gymnasium.

The Elkettes’ win came 24 hours after they took down West Las Vegas in four games (25-13, 25-18, 18-25, 25-19) at Gillie Lopez Gym.

Pojoaque is the top seed for next week’s district tournament, while the Lady Dons will be the No. 2 seed as regular-season runner-up.

The Elkettes’ coaching staff features several individuals with ties to the Meadow City area. New head coach Eric Zamora, who came to the program from Capital, is a onetime assistant with the New Mexico Highlands volleyball team. His assistants are Mora native Ricky DeHerrera — who’s also been Pojo’s softball coach — and Mark Loera, a native Las Vegan.
