No. 2 Vikings down WHS at Hatchet House

Barr-Reeve concluded a stellar regular season with a victory at the Hatchet House on Thursday night over county-rival Washington in three games. The Vikings will enter tournament play with. 31-2 record after a 25-14, 25-20, 25-18 victory over the Hatchets.

Game 1 looked like the Hatchets might hang around for the duration. A trio of Viking hitting errors, as well as a service error, combined with timely hitting from Washington junior Megan Arnold saw a tie as late as 13-13. Barr-Reeve then got hot behind pin-point serving from Hannah Bullock, and kills from Tiara Kenney and Hania Sisco to finish the set on a 12-1 run to win 25-14.

The second game followed much of the script of game one. Barr-Reeve worked to an early 6-2 lead, and later fronted at 12-6. A quick Washington run closed the margin to 12-9, but more serving from Bullock gave the Vikings an 18-12 margin. The teams almost traded points until the end of a 25-20 Viking victory.

Any thought that the Hatchets might go quietly into the night in the third game were quickly erased. Washington opened a 9-6 lead before the Vikings rallied. Timely hitting from Kenney and more serving from Molly Wallace allowed the Vikings to take a lead at 13-11. Barr-Reeve extended the margin throughout the rest of the game and ended the night at 25-18.

Viking mentor Amber DeCoursey who recently picked up her 400th career victory was philosophical after the win.

“We had a nice regular season, but this is the point of the year where everyone is 0-0. We have to have a good week of practice, and we will give it our beat shot next week.”

Washington coach Alicia Hand was happy with how hard her team competed in defeat. “It was great to see us play hard, play together, and compete as a team. We will need that drive as we push into the sectional.”

The Barr-Reeve junior varsity team finished their season with a 24-3 mark after knocking off the Hatchet in two games at 25-18, 25-22.

Both the Hatchets and Vikings kick off Sectional play next week.
