The Ventura volleyball team dropped two games and picked up one win in recent volleyball action.
NSKAR 3, Ventura 0
The Lady Vikes traveled to Swea City on Tuesday, Sept. 27, to play NSKAR. Ventura lost in three matches, 26-24, 25-15 and 25-8.
“We fought hard in the first set and things were really clicking, but they overtook us at the end of the set,” said Coach Abby Roenfanz. “We were definitely not 100 percent tonight. We were stuck on our heels and weren’t moving. You can’t be that way against a team like NSKAR, who are at the top of the conference.”
