You can easily sort the posts after the query because they are returned as an array.
The query_posts function will override the post objects, for the global $wp_query object. You can access the posts like so:
global $wp_query; $current_posts = $wp_query->posts;
You can then use some PHP to loop over the posts and re-order them. There are lots of different ways to re-order an array which I will leave with you to research and discover as this is more of a general WP question now.
Hope that helps.
