Lauren Seidel had a team-high six kills and Caroline Baghdikian added four aces as the South Tahoe volleyball team beat North Valleys 25-12, 25-19, 21-25, 21-25, 15-7 in a Sierra League match on Tuesday at STHS. It was the Vikings’ first win since a league-opening victory over Hug, and it snapped a six-game losing streak.
Chelsea Madsen had three blocks, while Kim Kolesnik and Rhiana Cerceo both turned in solid performances for South Tahoe, which improved to 3-6 overall and 2-6 in league play. The Vikings host Hug in another league game on Thursday night at 6.
STHS shuts out Mustangs
Adara Munoz had a goal and an assist, while Cassidy Berg and Morgan Cook also scored for the South Tahoe girls’ soccer team in its 3-0 Sierra League win over Damonte Ranch on Tuesday in Reno. Gina Licicero and Marissa Davis recorded assists for the Vikings (12-2 overall, 7-0 league).
“We didn’t seem too involved in the game in the first half,” said STHS Clint Lockhart, whose team led 1-0 at halftime. “We had a little talk at halftime and I told them that they are in first place in the league and they needed to play like it.”
The South Tahoe defense hasn’t allowed a goal in five straight league games. The Vikings play a nonleague game against North Tahoe on Thursday in Tahoe City.

Tasia Hancock recorded a 105 for South Tahoe, which will bring every player to next week’s Northern 4A regional tournament.
“We finished seven strokes out of second place,” said STHS coach Marsha Butler. “Overall, the team did well. Some of us struggled on the front nine and then took a number of strokes off on the back nine, which was encouraging. We’ll see what happens next week.”
