Viking volleyball moves to 8-1

Staff Report

The Evergreen volleyball team bumped their record to 8-1 on the year, with a pair of three set sweeps of Lake, 25-12, 25-9 and 25-23, then over Bryan in NWOAL play, 25-11, 25-23 and 25-15.

“We played well in the first and third set,” Viking coach Kelsey Wulf explained. “We kept our offense fast and put (Bryan) out of their system.”

In the second set Evergreen fell behind 23-18 before Eden Eisel served out the last seven points to garner the middle set win.

“We took our foot off the gas pedal and played in cruise control, and didn’t expect Bryan to play at us,” the veteran Viking coach said. “They honestly probably deserved to win that set but luckily we put it in gear down five points.”

The Vikings now travel to NWOAL contender Patrick Henry tonight before returning home to play Genoa in an afternoon tilt on Saturday.

“We are going to need to play a lot better at PH Thursday if we want a chance to win,” said Wulf. “They want revenge on us (from a three set romp last year at Evergreen), we need to come ready to play.”
