DICKINSON, ND -- In a showdown of the top two teams in the DAC on Saturday afternoon, Dickinson left no doubt who the superior team is. Dispatching the Vikings in three straight games(18-30, 26-30, 17-30) in convincing fashion, DSU now stands alone at 5-0 in DAC play while VCSU falls to 4-1. The win snaps a 5 match winning streak and extends Dickinson's conference winning streak to 30 straight matches.

The stymied Vikings were led by Heidi Larson who hit for a season low ten kills while Kim Bilokreli led the Vikings with 14 digs, also a season low.

"I really thought that Dickinson outplayed us in every aspect of the game. They were the stronger offensive team, stronger defensive team, superior serving team, and played the best in transition. They had our number in every aspect of tonight's match," state Vikings head coach Craig Case.

Case is concerned his team could be falling into a lapse heading into two tough contests this week.

"Just two weeks ago Presentation College gave us all we could handle at their gym. Jamestown and Dakota State are the pre-season #2 picks. If we can't sort out our deficiencies, we could be in a lot of trouble in those matches," he said.
