Viking Volleyball goes the distance for two wins
On the volleyball court last night, the Siuslaw Vikings came away with a pair of five-game wins. Junction City went up two games to one early in the opener, but the Vikings battled back and took the next two sets. Elyssa Rose had 15 kills; Brittany Long had 12 kills and three stuff blocks.
Newport surged to a two game lead in the nightcap, but the Vikings turned around and swept the next three for the victory. Rose added 20 more kills in that match for a total of 35 on the night.
Coach Angie Herring said Halee Richards played great defense, serving three aces and had seven kills.
