The Lady Knights Volleyball Team of Northview High School didn't come with their A-game to Tuesday night's game against Greencastle

"We have to learn that every game is a big game," coach Scott McDonald said. "That will come with experience."

Time and experience will help the team gain the momentum that will be needed in future games.

The young team was lead by junior Ali Sharton with 15 assists and Brittaney Long scored five aces to go with five kills and 20 service points. Alyssa Clarke had two blocks and Samantha Solomon contributed five kills and three blocks.

As the night went on, Greencastle fought back.

"Our approach wasn't as good as we thought," McDonald said "We underestimated Greencastle and they took advantage of that."

The junior varsity girls were also winners in convincing fashion.

"The girls went into the game with a great mindset, and they dominated with aces and kills," said McDonald.

Northview travels to Terre Haute North on Thursday night for a freshman, JV and varsity match beginning at 5:30 p.m.
