Vikings roll past Bloomfield in first semi-state match

LOOGOOTEE — For the second consecutive Saturday night, the Barr-Reeve volleyball team has a chance to win a championship at Jack Butcher Arena.

The Vikings (36-2) defeated Bloomfield (19-12) in three straight sets (25-20, 25-16, 25-20). Jenna Knepp led the Vikings with 40 assists. Hania Sisco had 17 kills, while Tiara Kenney had 10 and Tracy Graber added seven.

In similar fashion to Tuesday night's win over Tecumseh in the regional championship, the Vikings played a hotly contested first set. The Vikings and Cardinals were tied on nine different occasions in the opening stanza. The final tie came with the score knotted at 18, but the Vikings took control and scored seven of the final nine points to take a 25-20 victory.

After a 6-6 tie to start the match, the Vikings didn't trail again. Bloomfield took a timeout when Barr-Reeve extended its lead to 10-7 and the lead would only grow from there. The Cardinals seemed to be within striking distance for much of the match, but just couldn't break through as Barr-Reeve took the second set 25-16.

The Vikings once again controlled much of the tempo throughout the match as they took a 22-13 lead late in the set. Bloomfield scored three straight points to cut the lead to 22-16, forcing a Barr-Reeve timeout from coach Amber DeCoursey. Out of the timeout, the Cardinals score three straight points to cut the lead to 22-19. The Vikings settled themselves to win 25-20 on the clinching kill shot by senior Hania Sisco.

Barr-Reeve will take on Indianapolis Lutheran (31-7) tonight at 7 p.m. Lutheran beat Christian Academy in three straight sets in the first match of the day. Lutheran defeated Barr-Reeve in the semi-state championship match in 2010, the last time the Vikings were able to advance to this point.
