After digging a 21-15 hole in the first set Freshman Desi Tupua served 10 straight balls resulting in a 25-21 set victory. The second set went to Cottage Grove 25-21 and the Vikings turned it around in the third set with Mia Collins contributing 7 kills and three stuff blocks to take the third set. Coach Jonathan Hornung said the fourth set was flat allowing the Lions to tie it up. And they started off the fifth set in the lead but Cottage Grove battled for the victory.
“They were, by far, the biggest team we’ve seen all year and the girls stepped up really, really big.”
