TERRE HAUTE -- Following a pivotal Western Indiana Conference victory over Sullivan on Saturday, there was no let down for Northview on Monday night on the road at West Vigo.

The Knights won in three straight games over the Vikings, 25-16, 25-12, 25-13 to improve to 13-0 on the season and 4-0 in the WIC.

"I think we were still a little tired after playing seven games in one day over the weekend," said coach Scott McDonald. "But then we came back and showed some killer instinct, which we've been looking for the first 12 game."

The Knights were able to get everyone into the game against the Vikings and got a balanced effort from the team.

Brittaney Long had seven kills and four aces for the Knights and Hannah Emmert added five kills, an assists and an ace. Lizzie Emmert added four kills and an assist while Ali Sharton dished out eight assists and an ace.

Samantha Solomon piled up four kills, two blocks and a dig for the Knights and Kaylee Clark added eight digs. Ashley Clarke had three blocks and five kills at the net with Hannah Hayes adding a kill, three digs, 10 assists and two aces. Freshman Ashlen Buck had eight digs, Emily Chiles had four digs and Lexi Lang added a dig.

"We went out and played better after coming out a little slow," said McDonald. "We were more crisp with our passes and we were able to get everyone into the game, which is always good."

The Northview JV was also a winner over the Vikings with a 25-5, 25-9 victory.

The Knights improve to 13-0 overall and travel to Crawfordsville for tourney play on Saturday.
