Seven Curry, Roosevelt schools make state volleyball field

 

November 5, 2017



Seven Curry and Roosevelt county schools received bids to the New Mexico high school volleyball tournament, with two looking to defend their titles as top seeds.

Elida, going for an eighth-consecutive title, will go in as the top seed — and do it with plenty of District 4-1A company, Melrose, the only team to beat Elida in its own classification since the 2009 season, is the second seed, while Grady is the seventh seed and Floyd is the 12th seed.

Texico will try to win its fourth-straight Class 3A title, and their 10th title in 12 seasons, as the class’ top seed. District 5-3A rival Santa Rosa will be the second seed.

In Class 4A, Portales enters as the third seed, while Clovis received the ninth seed in Class 6A despite a fourth-place finish in district. Strength of schedule weighed heavily for Clovis, which went 11-10 overall and 3-7 in the top-heavy District 2-6A. The three teams that finished ahead of Clovis — La Cueva, Sandia and Eldorado — were the second, third and fourth seeds behind Centennial.
