Varsity volleyball lost to the Northwest Jaguars 3-1, September 22, falling to 3-2 for the season.

The girls lost the first set, but had a strong streak in the second set, evening the score at one set each. However, in the third and fourth sets, the VIkes faltered on offence and lost.

“We’ve been having a much better season than last year,” said left back Victoria North. “But we’ve been having a hard time with communication and trusting each other’s ability. We need everyone to put in full effort and trust in each other.”

Northwest is on e of the best teams in the country, so the girls were pleased that they were able to keep the match close.

“I play club with a lot of the Northwest players, so they’re pretty experienced,” said North. “They have a pretty good record, so we were pleased that we kept the game tight. We just wish the score had been different or we could have made it into five sets.”

This match leaves the Vikings with a successful 3-2 record, which many of the players credit to their new coach, Meryl Wagman.

“Coach Wagman has been a great leader this year, and she really knows what she’s talking about,” said North. “Our record proves her skill as a coach.”
