A tough weekend of matches started just that way Friday for the Valley City State volleyball team.

The Vikings dropped a pair of three-game matches at the Northwestern College Red Raider Classic, falling to both Morningside and Dordt College on Friday.

Morningside defeated the Vikings 25-21, 25-11 and 25-16. Dordt College, which is receiving votes in the NAIA Top 25 Poll, knocked off the Vikings 25-10, 25-18 and 25-18.

Alley Theroux and Kelsey Labodi led the Viking attack with 11 kills each between the two matches.

The opponents will not be any easier Saturday as VCSU takes on No. 23 Northwestern College and Doane College, which is receiving votes in the poll.

Valley City's record drops to 1-3.
