Vikings get past Rivet in sectional

LOOGOOTEE — In the opening round of Sectional 63 at Loogootee on Thursday night, Vincennes Rivet had to hope in would catch Barr-Reeve in a predicament.

With rivalry games potentially on the horizon on Saturday against North Daviess and possibly Loogootee, the Lady Patriots hoped the Vikings would overlook them. That didn’t happen, as Barr-Reeve turned in a dominant 25-9, 25-16, 25-13 victory to set up a semi-final matchup with the Cougars.

Coach Amber DeCoursey’s squad flexed their collective muscles in the opening stanza as they opened a 5-0 and then a 10-1 lead off of the hitting combination of Jenna Knepp to Tracy Graber. The opening onslaught continued behind Hannah Bullock’s serving, and Rivet burned their last timeout trailing 19-6. Junior Courtney Lasher ended the set with a kill at 25-9.

Rivet stayed competitive in the second game, even after Barr-Reeve fronted at 10-4 off the swinging of Hania Sisco.

The Patriots eventually cut the lead to 12-8 and then 16-13 off of the hitting combination of Bailey Niehaus and Lauren Herman. The Lady Vikings stretched the margin to 22-15 after consecutive kills by Tiara Kenney, and ended the set at 25-16 after a Courtney Pruett ace.

The third set put any thoughts of Rivet comeback to bed quickly as the Lady Vikes raced to leads of 6-1 and then 13-3. Coach DeCoursey then began emptying her bench as several junior varsity players saw action, and the freshman combination of Leah Bullock to Megan Graber ended the night with a booming kill at 25-13.

DeCoursey was pleased with her team’s play, but realizes that Saturday will bring a whole new challenge.

“I thought our focus was good, and at this time of the year, we have to take one game at a time. We’ll come back on Saturday and the girls will give it their best shot.”

Barr-Reeve was led by Tracy Graber and Hania Sisco with 11 and 10 kills respectively.

Jenna Knepp assisted on 33 of the kills on the night, and Hannah Bullock and Molly Wallace led the defensive charge with eight digs each.

Barr-Reeve moved its season record to 32-2 with the victory. The Vikings will open Saturday’s action against North Daviess in the opening game at 11 a.m.
