It was a night of positives as the Norse volleyball team defeated PCM easily in three sets.

“I was really proud of how we played our game and didn’t let up,” said head coach Molly Geise.

PCM struggled to handle Roland-Story’s firepower from serves to the Norse’s balanced hitting attack.

MaKayla Geise led the team with eight ace serves, with Madison Geise and Juliann Clark contributing three apiece.

The Norse, on the other, handled PCM serves with ease; Taryn Johnston, Ava Charlson, MaKayla Geise, Juliann Clark and Emily Johnson combined for a passing percentage well above the team’s goal.

“We have a great passing/defensive team that helps set us up for a strong attack,” Coach Geise said.

“Madison does a great job of distributing the ball to our hitters,” Geise said. “She mixes it up and keeps the defense guessing.”

Rylie Goeders led the Norse with seven kills. Clark had a very effective night with six of her seven hitting attempts were a kill. MaKayla Geise also had six kills with Amy Rathmacher and Whitney Erickson three kills apiece and Tayler Janssen one.

“A great first conference victory!” Coach Geise said.
