SPARKS, Nev. — The South Tahoe volleyball team got back on track with a road win on Friday, Oct. 23. The Vikings swept Sparks 25-19, 25-17, 25-21, a victory that ended a three-game slide.

“We played a very controlled, smart game,” Vikings coach Dan McLaughlin said.

South Tahoe (9-7, 8-6 I-A Northern) rolled to victory on Friday to secure at least a fifth-place finish in league. The Vikings passed efficiently and delivered a strong defensive performance from the back row to sweep Sparks (3-15, 0-12) for the second time this season.

Kaitlynn Watson finished with a match-high 15 digs against the Railroaders and passed at a 2.2 on serve-receive — she also had two aces. Fellow back row player Nora Anderson had seven digs to go along with a kill.

“Kaitlynn was all over the place and she had a very strong game defensively,” McLaughlin said.

Defensively, Sarah Smith had five digs to go along with two aces, Ashley Bricker finished with three digs and three aces and Zoe Mosedale added two digs and two aces. McKenna Brewer had a block and two kills.

On offense, Novel Moses led the way with nine kills and three aces to ago along with five digs. Paige Naccarato tallied seven kills and four aces.

South Tahoe returned to action at home Tuesday, Oct. 27, against Truckee. The Vikings conclude the regular season, Thursday, Oct. 29, against Fernley at the Blue Gym — first serve is scheduled for 6 p.m.
