Vike Netters Sweep Overhills
The Union Pines volleyball team picked up a critical conference victory in convincing fashion Tuesday, sweeping Overhills in three sets at Bob Ward Gymnasium.
Senior Kelsey Troyer paced the homestanding Lady Viking attack with a match-high 19 kills on the night. Senior libero Brittney Erickson led the team in digs with 13, while Union Pines' sophomore setter Megan Harris had a match-high 28 assists. Junior middle hitter Tiffany Hicks also had a strong night for the Vikes with four blocks, and six kills.
With the 25-21, 25-17, 25-10 league win, Union Pines improved to 10-8 overall and 4-3 in 3-A Cape Fear Valley Conference play. The loss was just the second for the Overhills Jaguars in league action as the squad fell to 6-2 in the CFVC standings and dropped to 8-8 overall. Union Pines lost a five-set match to Overhills the first time the teams met this season, after winning the first two sets of the tilt, as the schools split the regular season league series.
Up next for Union Pines is another key CFVC contest as Union Pines travels to Gray's Creek for a league clash Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in Hope Mills.
Gray's Creek topped the Lady Vikings earlier this year in straight sets. A Thursday victory over the Gray's Creek Bears would put the Vikes right in the in the thick of the race for the regular season CFVC championship.
