Viking spikers send message to Fallon

The division records were identical at 6-1.

But when the South Tahoe High volleyball team left Churchill County on Tuesday night, coach Gary Hankoff said there was no doubt which was the better team.

The Vikings pounded Division II foe Fallon in three games, 15-5, 15-9, 15-13.

“We haven’t been playing up to our level. We saw they had the same record as we did and wanted to send a message,” Hankoff said. “We came at them from all different directions and really hit the ball well. They did nothing against us.”

Senior slugger Adrian Hankoff smacked 25 kills and five aces, as the Vikes improved to 7-1 in league and 8-7 overall following a lackluster 1-4 trip to Santa Barbara last weekend. Alicia Lambert tossed up 35 assists along with seven kills, while Courtney Wilson added six kills. Coach Hankoff also credited sophomore Missy Johnson with improving play.

South Tahoe High’s girls soccer team tied Wooster at 2 on Tuesday in Reno.

Tahoe coach Julia Peyser, whose team remains in the playoff hunt at 4-4-1, said her team got on track once it adjusted to a shorter Wooster field.

“Our practice field is bigger than their field and we can’t even play 11-on-11 on ours. Goal kicks were going past the midfield line,” she said.

Tahoe was down 1-0 at the half until goals by Jen Hamm and Emily Magana evened it. Katrina Clapp and Reggie Braun added assists.

South Tahoe High’s boys tennis team lost, 18-4, at Manogue on Tuesday.

Coach Pat Fagen said despite the score, he was pleased with the team’s inspired play.

“There were a lot of close games and matches. The kids just need to learn to take the next step,” he said.

South Tahoe’s (3-6) No. 1 singles player Colin Moulton picked up a trio of wins while No. 3 Jody Michael added a solo victory.
