Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Northview's Shelbi Morris had eight kills and two digs in the win.
CASCADE -- The Northview volleyball team followed up a strong weekend of play at the Barr-Reeve Invitational by pinning a home loss on Cascade by a 25-21, 25-10, 25-19 score on Tuesday night.

The Knights got nine kills, four blocks, 11 digs and three service aces from Brylie Riddell and freshman McKenzi Kump leading the team with 12 kills to go with four digs. Ashlen Buck led the Knights with 15 digs in the victory and Shelbi Morris provided eight kills and two digs.

The offense got off to a slow start, but the Northview passers picked it up and Taylor Hess had 17 assists, two aces and a kill while Briana Cook added 14 assists and an ace.

"We played very flat at the beginning, down 10-1 in the first set, then we got it going and cruised the rest of the way," Northview coach Scott McDonald said. "Brylie (Riddell), McKenzi (Kumpf) and Shelbi (Morris) were all dominating at the net. We struggled early in serve receive with steering the ball as opposed by moving our feet. Once we were able to get the ball to our setters in a good position we hit very well."

Northview's Alexus Bex had two kills, a block and an assist with Hannah Willocks providing a kill and three assists. Mikayla Rowan added four kills and two blocks and Audrey Clark had six digs.

The Knights' junior varsity won 22-25, 25-23, 15-9.

Northview is now 12-3 overall and have a conference doubleheader on the road against Sullivan and Brown County this weekend.
