The Vikings volleyball team moved to 4-3 on the season with a 25-18, 25-21, 25-23 win over Conrad Oct. 5 at Cape.

Megan Smith led the Vikings with 31 assists, while senior Rileigh Wilson put down 13 kills, five aces, three blocks and five digs. Libero Harlee Graulich bumped up 13 digs. Kali Lawson put down six kills, six aces and bumped eight digs. Laurelee Mobius and Natalie Derrickson had eight kills and eight digs, respectively. Tatum Friend, Kayleigh Mault and Hope Reed teamed for six kills, three aces, three blocks and a dig.

“A good win for us tonight,” said Cape coach Tyler Coupe. “I don’t think we played our cleanest match again, but we were still able to find a way to piece things together and fight through. Conrad is a consistently tough team that has beaten and given us trouble many times over the years. They’re well coached and typically don’t make many mistakes, forcing you to beat them. Tonight was no different. They served consistently, applied pressure at the net, and they kept a ton of our attacks up. We made almost 30 unforced errors between service and attacking. It’s the same old song, but we have to do better at protecting the ball. Our hitting percentage was dangerously low, especially for a win, finishing at .152. We’re still looking to find our identity, and I hope we do quickly, as we have a tough rest of the week with Dover, who beat us last year, and Ursuline, a perennial powerhouse, Saturday. I’ve got faith in the girls, in each of them and what they can do. It’s got to be them, though. They’ve got to demonstrate that faith in self and each other.”

Conrad was led by Dylan Gregor with 12 digs and Adrienne Testa with 10 digs and 10 assists.

The Vikings JV squad moved to 4-3 with a 25-12, 25-17 victory over Conrad.
