The Decorah Viking volleyball team got a chance to play a lot of games on Saturday at Mason City.

The Vikings lost to Mason City, 22-24, 21-10 and 12-15; to Charles City, 18-21, 10-21; to Iowa City Liberty, 17-21, 15-21; and to Iowa Falls-Alden, 12-21, 21-18 and 15-17.

Despite the scores, the weekend was profitable in terms of giving 15 girls the chance to play volleyball.  Several stood out: Cassie Wyatt had 30 assists and was successful on 28 out of 29 serves; Ambria Pipho had 11 kills and 19 assists; and Brooke Berns had 10 kills and was successful on 9 out of 13 serves.

Decorah will now try to put into effect the lessons they learned over the weekend.  The Vikings will host Saint Ansgar at 7:15 Tuesday night.
