Monday

Knights vs. Mooresville

The Northview varsity volleyball team earned a victory in their opening match of the season, picking up a four set, 25-11, 28-30, 25-12, 25-17 victory versus Mooresville on Monday night.

Thomas came through with a big game with 33 assists, eight points and a service ace to go with Huffman's 13 points and five aces. Thomas also contributed four tip kills and Huffman had four for the Knights.

Brittney Spugnardi served up 11 points and four aces for the Knights with Fulk had 12 points in the victory and contributed seven blocks and 13 kills. Arvin sent home five kills and blocked two shots.

Up front, middle hitter, King had 10 blocks and added 12 kills to go with three digs and Clark contributed eight points and five aces.


The Northview JV game came up on the short end of a 19-25, 19-25 decision despite an eight assist game from Emma Koehler who had two kills and Olivia Kumpf added four assists and Chelsea Mershon had four kills. Ashley Hull had four kills and a block.


In the freshman game, the Knights dropped a 19-25, 25-23, 14-15 decision that ended with a bit of controversy.

An opponent must win by two points and officials did not catch the mistake and Northview did not have a rule book to clarify the mistake as Mooresville was credited with the victory.

Alison Stearley had three kills and Ali Rentschler had four aces as did Ashlyn Yocom. Kirstin Kimball added an ace, two kills and a block.
