ROCKVILLE -- Northview's volleyball team remained unbeaten on Monday evening with a 25-11, 25-22, 21-25, 25-21 win over a much improved Rockville squad.
"Overall I was pleased, we played much better," said coach Scott McDonald. "Rockville is a tough environment to play in. They have a lot of kids that come to their games and make a lot of noise. It's something that I'd like to have that at our games."
Northview got a 10 kill performance from Lizzie Emmert to go with a block and Hannah Emmert topped the team with a six block evening. Samantha Solomon contributed four blocks and four kills in the victory. Alyssa Clarke also added four blocks to go with her six kills. Brittaney Long added five kills and four service aces.
"They've got a really good middle, probably the best we'll see all year long," said McDonald. "Our blocking was really good across the whole front row and we did a good job of negating what (Rockville's middle) wanted to do."
Kaylee Clark had six kills and 16 digs on defense with Ashlen Buck leading the defense with 24 kills and Emily Chiles added 12 digs for the Knights.
Hannah Hayes had 20 assists with three kills and a block and Ali Sharton balanced the attack with another 16 assists.
