Ayr in a three-set battle with the Viqueens coming out on top in game one (25-22) and then dropping sets two and three (14-25 and 11-15) to earn second place out of the eight-team tournament. On Tuesday, the Viqueens hosted Essex for corner conference competition. The JV team won their match with scores of 21-13, 21-14, 21-19 and 21-18. The varsity team lost their match in three sets (22-25, 9-25 and 13-25). The Queens traveled to East Mills on Thursday for another conference match.

The varsity defeated Murray last Friday night to improve their district record to 3 wins and 0 losses. Tonight they'll host the powerful Eagles of East Union in another tough district match-up. The Viking defense will be working hard to contain one of the top rushers in the district as well finding ways to reach the end zone through a physical and hard hitting defense. Good Luck Vikes!
