Volleyball tops Rockford, falls twice to Norbert

Philip Roy

The women’s volleyball team traveled to De Pere last weekend for a non-conference tournament against Rockford and St. Norbert. The Vikings were outplayed by the Green Knights in the first game and dropped a tight 30-28 decision in the second. Lawrence managed to pull one back in the third but would go on to fall by 6 in the fourth game. The Vikings then got off to a similar start losing the opening game against Rockford. This time, however, they bounced back, snatching three consecutive games and the match. Senior Emily Stengl piled on 27 kills over the weekend, while Midwest Conference Player of the Week Kelly Mulcahy had 28.
The Vikes would then take on St. Norbert again, this time in conference play. In a tough-fought match, the Green Knights would emerge victorious again, taking the match in four games. Mulcahy put in another impressive performance with 20 kills. With the loss, the Vikes fell to a 2-2 conference record and are fourth in the Northern Division with 2 points. They will look to add on to that total this weekend at the second MWC playdate.
