Viking girls ready to spike

By: Taryn Matheny

   The volleyball team has been training since the first chance they got to work together. They began working
together in June, practicing and attending different camps to improve their play for the upcoming season.
   The team’s first game was September 6th against Parkersburg Catholic at home. The junior varsity team had a good showing in their play against Parkersburg Catholic and was able to come out with the victory. The Varsity team showed good signs during their play, but were unable to come away with the win. The team played hard and competed well against Parkersburg Catholic. The team has a chance to be a very good team this season if they can just correct a few tiny mistakes they made in their last game. They have a lot of time to work on making these corrections with this being only their first game of the season.
   “We played good, but we need to work on our communication skills,” said Senior Ryne Hill.
   They now know what they will need to do to improve from this to win their next game. The volleyball team’s next game is away at Charleston Catholic where they hope they will improve and be able to come away with the win. If you get the opportunity to come and watch the volleyball team you should definitely take some time and go support them and cheer them on to victory.
