  • Lady Dons make quick work of Taos

    The visiting Taos Lady Tigers had no answers against West Las Vegas’ volleyball team Tuesday night at Gillie Lopez Gym.

    Game scores were 25-13, 25-15, 25-13 in favor of Elizabeth Ulibarri’s squad (5-6, 1-0 District 2-4A).

    West’s continuing progress was evident throughout, as the Lady Dons never trailed at any point in the evening.

    Alisson Hill’s crisp kill off a Sarah Gold assist opened scoring, and after a pair of Gold service aces and a Taos misfire, West led the first set 4-0.
