Vikings Volleyball Goes to 5 in Loss

The Siuslaw Viking were on the court in Cottage Grove last night it was a hard fought 5 set battle according to Head Coach Ashley Cole.  The Lions and Vikings went back and forth with the first four sets going 25-19, 23-25, 25-14, and 19-25.  Cole said the Viking girls only lost four serves on the night.  In the final set the Viks fell 15-12, but Cole says she saw the potential for a better second half of the season.

“We’re starting to play our game and we’re playing how we know we can play and I am really excited to see what’s in store for the rest of the season.”
