S. Tahoe tops Dayton in 5
LAKE TAHOE — The South Tahoe Vikings outlasted Dayton in five sets (25-23, 23-25, 25-21, 14-25 15-12) Wednesday night.
“My starters struggled to pass the ball and cover the court on defense,” Dayton coach Monica Halverson said. “Our serving was better, but not as strong and well-placed as I would have liked. The bench players stepped up and played well. I don’t think we were mentally ready for the game.”
Brianda Diaz led Dayton with 12 kills and eight digs, while Makenna Olsen added nine kills. Katie Turner finished with five kills and nine digs. Setter Shalia Powell had 27 assists, two kills, a block and five digs.
Dayton is now 4-1 in league and 16-2 overall.
