The Decorah Viking volleyball squad traveled to Independence on Thursday night, dropping a 3-2 decision.  The Vikings dropped the first set, 23-25, but came back to win the second set, 29-27, and the third set, 25-20.  Decorah was competitive in the fourth set, losing 15-25, but completely ran out of gas in the fifth and deciding set, losing 1-15

Said Head Coach Gina Holthaus, "Weplayed three-and-a-half sets of some pretty great volleyball at Independence. Wepassed exceptionally well, which allowed our setters to move the ball aroundand get all of our hitters involved. We served fairly aggressively and keptthem a little off balance. If these girls continue to stick with the system, wewill continue to get more comfortable with each other and trust theprocess."
