Lady Vikings split matches
The Northgate Vikings split a pair of marathon volleyball matches by nearly identical scores on Tuesday night at Sandy Creek.
Northgate knocked off Mill Creek (15-25, 25-18 and 25-20) before falling to Sandy Creek (25-19, 18-25 and 20-25).
'The team's consistency was much better tonight,' Northgate head coach Matt Trucks said. 'This weekend, that is something we lacked.'
Northgate was paced by Randee Harvel's 24 kills and five acces. Taylor Richard also added 16 kills.
Trinity transfer Taylor Bigler led the way with 24 assists. Kalie Whiddon finished the two matches with 17 assists.
Savannah Moore added seven kills.
Northgate opens its season at home on Thursday with a doubleheader against Houston and Harris County.
'These are two teams that we could see in the state tournament later this year,' Trucks said.
