Volleyball

by Ariah Howard

The Lady Vikings volleyball team is staying strong with our 3-0 standing.

Some of our wins include against Mount Vernon Christian, Concrete and our rivals Friday Harbor. We are all happy and nervous about what’s to come with the other teams that we will face. Our coach Rebekah Hardee is keeping us busy during practices, making sure we are up to facing any challenge that we may come across, but she doesn’t mind if we play around every once in a while. They are always ready to help us with something we find difficult to do. Our upcoming games include a homecoming match against La Conner on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m. and an away game in Concrete on Monday, Oct. 8 that we are all looking forward to playing. We just hope we keep our winning streak going.

Girls’ soccer

by Olivia Brunner-Gaydos

Following a few injuries and down a few players, the Lady Vikings soccer team faced off against the Mount Vernon Christian Hurricanes and the Friday Harbor Wolverines last week.

Losing 8-0 to both teams, the girls kept their heads up and continued to fight. After the difficult loss against Mount Vernon, the girls came out with a new attitude when facing off with the Wolverines. Playing a new formation of 4-4-2, the team managed to hold the defensive line for most of the first half.

Unfortunately, the Vikings tired during the second half and it affected their play. Homecoming week began Monday at the high school and on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 4:45 p.m., the girls’ soccer team will represent our colors and play against the La Conner Braves. Please come out and support.

Boys’ soccer

by Levi Moss

The Vikings’ boys soccer team pulled off two back-to-back wins last week at home, beating Providence Classical Christian 10-1 and Grace Academy 10-0.

The Vikings’ boys are on a roll. With one of the strongest starts in their history, the boys’ soccer team has already surpassed their goal tally from the previous season in only one-third of the number of games. Averaging almost 10 goals a game, while conceding an average of only .5 goals per game, the Vikings are looking to continue their good form this week as they play some of the top teams in the district.

On Thursday, Oct. 4, they take on Cedar Park Christian at home with a 3 p.m. kickoff. On Saturday, Oct. 6 at 1:45 p.m., they play the homecoming game against one of the top teams in the league in Mount Vernon Christian. The homecoming game is the biggest high school sporting event of the year, and they are looking forward to playing against one of the best teams.
