LA CROSSE – The Viterbo University volleyball team and Paige Hyer (Royall) continued their season-starting win streak to 20 matches with three wins in three days last week.
The V-Hawks entered Thursday’s match against Dordt College having won their prior nine sets, along with their previous 17 matches.
Though the set streak was brought to an end, Viterbo maintained its perfect record with a 3-1 (25-17, 25-21, 21-25 and 25-22) win.
Viterbo then hosted Dakota State University on Saturday and began a new set win streak with a 3-0 (26-24, 25-12 and 25-21) decision.
Hyer had one kill for the V-Hawks in Saturday’s three-set win (25-16, 25-12 and 25-18) over Presentation College, pushing their record to 20-0 overall on the season and 7-0 in the North Star Athletic Association.
The V-Hawks will need multiple wins this weekend to continue their undefeated season. They will play at least four matches in the Grand View Tournament in Iowa; the two-day event starts on Friday.
