Lady Vikings knock off Bloomfield

Sometimes the hardest issue a team in any sport can face is backing up a great performance with another. The Barr-Reeve volleyball team struggled with that at times on Friday night at Kavanaugh Kourt, but still pulled out a victory over a spirited Bloomfield squad.

After sharp play virtually the entire night before against Sullivan, the Lady Vikings struggled in game one. Five missed serves and multiple hitting errors allowed the visitors to remain close. A Jenna Knepp to Tracy Graber set and kill gave Barr-Reeve a 24-20 lead, and the Vikings pulled out a 25-22 first set victory.

After a stern discussion with Coach Amber DeCoursey between games one and two, the Lady Vikings appeared to be much crisper. They quickly moved to a 12-6 lead, and sophomore Courtney Pruett got hot from the service line. The first year varsity starter rattled off eight quick points, which led to an eventual 25-8 blowout victory.

Game three was much of the same, as pinpoint serving by Molly Wallace allowed the Vikings to quickly move in front at 8-2. Barr-Reeve maintained a near double digit lead the entire frame, and pulled away to a 25-14 win.

Hannah Bullock once again led the Viking defense with 11 digs, Jenna Knepp assisted on 26 kills, and Tiara Kenney led the Barr-Reeve offense with 10 smashes.

Although the contest may have looked easy in the scoreboard, DeCoursey says there are improvements that can be made. “We have got to do a better job in limiting our unforced errors. Whether it’s our serving game, or hitting errors, we just have to do a better job. We will get to work on cleaning that and some of our communication errors up as we move forward.”

The Barr-Reeve junior varsity squad also moved their record to 2-0 with a 25-18, 25-24 victory over the Lady Cardinals. The Lady Vikings return to action next Tuesday night with a home contest against Vincennes Rivet at 6:00.
