The Valley City State volleyball team won its second match in a row Saturday, defeating Briercrest College in straight sets, 25-16, 26-24, 25-20.

One night after sweeping Presentation College on the road, the Vikings earned a sweep at home as well to improve their overall record to 8-11.

“I’m proud of the team,” VCSU head coach Susan Kolbow said after the match. “They’ve played disciplined, complete matches the last two days. They’re working hard and its paying off.”

The Vikings are back at home Tuesday, Sept. 24, for a conference match. Rival Mayville State comes to town for a 7 p.m. North Star match. Mayville is 7-11 overall and 1-1 in North Star play. The Comets lost to Jamestown in five, but defeated Dakota State in three.
