It was a tough night for the Viking volleyball team on Thursday as they lost to Oelwein 3-0. Final scores were 13-25, 27-29, and 18-25.

Senior Lizzie Hartman had eight kill shots and sophomore Ambria Pipho had 16 set assists.

"We just didn't come ready to play on Thursday. Oelwein is a good team, but we made things too easy for them by not playing our game. Four service errors in game one alone took us right out of that game. Game 2 we battled at the end, but didn't take advantage of the chances they gave us.  This week is going to be a tough week for us, Charles City here on Tuesday night (Senior Night), then we travel to Independence on Thursday and West Waterloo Saturday.  We need to be ready each and every time we walk on the floor," commented head coach Gina Holthaus.

The Vikings will host Charles City on Tuesday night.
