TERRE HAUTE -- The Northview volleyball team opened its season with a three-game win on the road at West Vigo Monday evening, 25-16, 25-6, 25-7.
The Knights used their service game to take control against the Vikings and pull away to comfortable victories in the second and third sets.
"The first set we came out a little sluggish from having three days off," Northview coach Scott McDonald said. "We were just able to out hit them. In sets two and three, we really asserted ourselves offensively and with our serving."
Defensively, the Knights got three digs apiece from Audrey Clark and Ashley Heck with Hannah Willocks adding two. Madison McDonald posted 17 assists and Taylor Hess contributed 12 along with two aces.
McKenzie Kumpf served up eight aces in the match and added eight kills.
"Kenzi was phenomenal serving last night, at one point she had five consecutive aces," McDonald said. "All of our servers were able to swing hard and put them out of system on numerous occasions really limiting them on offense. We were happy with getting the conference win, and now have to work toward getting ready for our next match."
Brylie Riddell had seven kills, two aces, one block and an assist with Shelbi Morris providing 10 kills, an ace, a block and one dig. Both Mikayla Rowan and Morgan Stearley had six kills and a block as Stearley passed out two assists as well. Alexus Bex had one kill for the Knights.
