On Saturday, September 22nd, the varsity team traveled to Bedford for the Bedford tournament. In pool play, the team won matches against East Union, dropped a close 3-set match to East Mills and dropped their match to Central Decatur. There was a 3-way tie for second from their pool but due to point differential, the Queens proceeded to consolation play as a third place seed. In the consolation match, the Viqueens were victorious over Bedford in two sets. On Thursday, the Viqueens will travel to Bedford for a non-conference match. Next week, the squad is in action in the Corner Conference Tournament. In round one, the Queens will take to the

Last Friday, the Vikings struggled in the first half, only scoring 6 points against the undefeated East Mills Wolverines. However, the team regrouped and made some adjustments at half-time and scored 34 points in the second half to pull off the upset 40-20. After 4 games in a row on the road, the Vikings will return for their Homecoming game to take on the Essex Trojans. Essex brings a whole lot of speed to the game and both teams will be playing to take home "The Shield" as victors of the Swede Bowl. The presentation of the "The Shield" will be made on the field immediately following the game. Kickoff is at 7:00 PM! Go Vikings!
