The Decorah Viking girls volleyball team got a chance to get in a lot of game experience on Saturday, traveling to Epworth for the Western Dubuque Tournament.

The Vikings beat West Branch, 21-7, 22-20; lost to Tipton,22-20, 14-21, 13-15; lost to Western Dubuque, 13-21, 9-21; then came back to beat Dubuque Senior, 21-8, 21-15.

Said head coach Gina Holthaus, "This was a good day for us, minus the Western Dubuque second set. We played with some intensity and overcame some big mental hurdles that we have been battling."

The Vikings will not have any matches this week, but will travel to Waverly next Tuesday.  Then on Saturday, October 19th, it's the Northeast Iowa Conference Tournament at New Hampton.
