Vikings defeat cougars, Loogootee looming ahead

Barr-Reeve volleyball coach Amber DeCoursey knows that in her 14th year on the sidelines that for her Lady Vikings to play in big games, sometimes they have to take care of business first. Business on Tuesday night was the volleyball version of the Buggy Bowl where the Vikings knocked off North Daviess in three games.

The Lady Vikings took quick control of game one as Jenna Knepp rattled off five quick serves for a 5-0 lead. The Vikings steadily increased the margin as the game went on, and a Hania Sisco kill ended the action at 25-14.

The second set looked like it might be a duplicate of the first. Barr-Reeve opened leads of 5-1, then 9-3. The defense of the Lady Cougars tightened up for a moment, and allowed North Daviess to get back in the game at 12-9. From that point however, pinpoint Viking serving, including four consecutive aces from junior Hannah Bullock allowed the Vikings to pull out a 25-12 win.

Although it looked like it might be a quick night for both teams as the Lady Vikings raced to a 8-2 lead in the third game, Chandra Bruner of the Lady Cougars had other ideas. Bruner’s hot serving gave North Daviess a lead at 11-10, and served notice to the visitors from Montgomery that the final set wouldn’t be as easy as the first two. More precise serving from Bullock allowed the Vikings to re-establish control and claim the final set at 25-18.

DeCoursey was pleased with the win, but also gave North Daviess credit for their play. “I felt like the North Daviess defense made us earn most of our points, and I thought they made some excellent plays. I also thought that us having to work for our points will serve us well in competitive situations going forward.”

The Barr-Reeve junior varsity improved to 15-3 with a 25-10, 25-13 victory.

Action on Friday night at Kavavaugh Kourt will get underway at 6:00. Friday night will also be a Coaches vs. Cancer games, and a short ceremony will take place in between games.
