Vikings fall to BNL

Both the Barr-Reeve Lady Vikings and the Bedford North Lawrence Lady Stars volleyball teams have gotten off to impressive starts. Bedford travelled to Montgomery on Tuesday night with a sparkling 9-0 record, while Barr-Reeve entered the contest at 5-0.

The Vikings, however, suffered their first loss of the season as Bedford won all three games Tuesday evening at Kavanaugh Kourt.

The opening game saw a back and forth with the Lady Vikings holding slim early margins. With the Barr-Reeve lead at 11-9, the momentum swung quickly back to Bedford, via the booming jump serve of junior Lexi Scott. Scott rattled two aces in her string of seven consecutive points to stake the Lady Stars to a 16-11. Barr-Reeve rallied, and a Tiara Kenney kill tied game one at 22 all. A quick sideout, and two more serves from Scott gave the first stanza to BNL at 25-22.

Game two was an even tighter affair than the opening set. Excellent defense from both teams led to ties at 20, 21, 22, and 23. A pair of Lady Viking hitting errors ended the second game at 25-23 in favor of the visiting Stars.

Bedford took control early in game three with more pinpoint serving, and made the Lady Vikings pay for multiple hitting and serving errors to finish off the game at 25-17.

Viking coach Amber DeCoursey knows her team has work to do if it’s going to compete in the Barr-Reeve Invitational on Saturday.

“We have several things that need work. Our communication, positioning, and of course, we have to continue to cut down on our mistakes. We can’t continue to make as many errors as we have, but I think it goes without saying that we must do a better job.”

Hania Sisco and Tiara Kenney again led the Vikings with 11 and 10 kills, while Jenna Knepp assisted on 27 points, and Hannah Bullock led the defense with 13 digs.

The Lady Viking junior varsity picked up an impressive 25-14, 25-11 win over the Stars. The varsity team will return to action on Saturday morning in the Barr-Reeve tournament where they will face 1A top ranked Indianapolis Lutheran in the first game at 9:00 that morning.
