Vikings 2nd In BR Invitational

MONTGOMERY - Barr-Reeve volleyball coach Amber DeCoursey has an aggressive concept when it comes to scheduling games for her team. “We like to think that we will play anybody, anytime, anywhere.” That held true on Saturday at the BR Invitational, which many regard as the best small school volleyball tournament in Indiana. The Lady Vikings knocked off 1A No. 1 Indianapolis Lutheran, 1A No. 7 Trinity Lutheran, and 2ANo. 2 Perry Central on Saturday – and that was just in pool play.

The Lady Vikings started quickly against the much bigger Lady Saints of Indianapolis Lutheran, and pin-point serving from Molly Wallace and Allison Hoover led the way. The aggressive serving led not only to aces, but eventually kills that were converted by Tiara Kenney, Hania Sisco, and Tracy Graber as the Vikings pulled out a crisp 25-14, 25-13 win in the opener.

An even bigger task awaited in game two, as Perry Central’s offensive attack featured multiple six-footers. The Lady Vikings again used stellar defensive play from Courtney Pruett, as well as Libero Hannah Bullock to secure a 27-25, 21-25, 15-10 over the Commodores.

Trinity Lutheran, who has advanced to the state championship game, and Semi-State championship game the past two seasons were the final Viking victim in pool play. Barr-Reeve setter Jenna Knepp found multiple Viking hitters, including Courtney Lasher, Megan Graber, and Skylar Chestnut for timely kills in an easy 25-12, 25-18 victory.

The championship game posed a unique challenge for Barr-Reeve as Tates Creek High School from Kentucky won their pool with victories against Linton, Evansille Mater Dei, and Northview to set up the title clash. The challenge for the Lady Vikings was also figuring out a way to slow Kendall Beerman. The 6’2 junior outside hitter has already committed to play at Indiana University, and is considered one of the top players in the country. The Commodores also entered ranked No.16 in Kentucky’s one-class athletic system.
