The Viking volleyball team dropped a pair of conference road matches this weekend at Bellevue University and Dakota State University.
The Vikings dropped a three-set match at No. 21-ranked Bellevue University on Friday night: 13-25, 14-25, 20-25. On Saturday, VCSU lost a five-set match at Dakota State University: 25-23, 17-25, 25-21, 23-25, 15-17.
Five different Vikings reached double-figure kills on Saturday, but it wasn't quite enough as VCSU's tough luck continued in five-set matches. VCSU is now 1-8 this season in matches that go the distance.
Valley City State drops to 7-19 overall and 3-7 in the North Star Athletic Association.
Up next: VCSU plays at Presentation College on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Vikings are back in Valley City for their final home matches of the season on Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
