“Our coach, Tommy Roberts, made it clear that we needed to dominate this game,” attacker Garrett Wilcox said. “This game was important because we were able to send a message to the county.”

The Vikes dominated throughout the game by controlling the tempo, which allowed many minutes to be delegated throughout the whole team. Before this game, multiple junior varsity players were moved up to varsity to play during the end of the season and playoffs.

“The situation of the game allowed us to play backups, and that stands out,” Willcox said. “It showed how much potential our younger players have, and how much our team has to work with for years to come.”

The team plays at home for the regular season finale against Urbana at 6.
