The Northview junior varsity volleyball team picked up three wins on Saturday to continue their mid-season surge.

The Knights started off slow in match one by falling to Evansville Central, but then rallied to score a 25-20, 15-13 win in the final two games to pick up the victory.

In the second match of the day, the Knights again fell behind with a game one loss, 21-25 and then came back to pick up a 25-22, 15-14 win to stay on the winning track.

The third match of the day was a re-match with rival Sullivan, which had beaten the Knights earlier in the season. This time around, Northview came out on top in two games, 25-24, 25-21.

"In game one the girls showed some fight coming back from an 11-18 deficit to win by one 25-24," coach Greg Mogan said. "Earlier in the season we struggled to come from behind. It seems we are learning to fight back and have become much more competitive than a month ago.

"After starting the year 4-3 a lineup change has resulted in an 8 and 1 stretch for a very respectable 12-4 record," Mogan added. "Cutting down on mental errors and playing with more heart has been contributing factors."
