The Fort Walton Beach Vikings volleyball team showed their strength on the road Tuesday night, sweeping the Escambia Gators in straight sets: 25-15, 25-16, 25-19.

The Vikings controlled the net on offense thanks to standout performances from junior outside hitter Ashley Bouck and sophomore opposite Aubree Davis. Bouck hammered down 8 kills on a .217 hitting percentage while Davis smashed 6 kills, adding 4 aces from the service line. 

The Vikings passing and defense was also superb, enabling their setters to feed the hot hitters. Junior Brighton Watson picked up a team-high 8 digs and passed a whopping 24 serves, allowing the Vikings offense to run smoothly. 

  • Junior setter Brooke Henderson ran the offense masterfully, distributing 25 assists to go along with a critical game winning ace serve to close out the third set. 

After the match, the coach praised her team’s communication and trust in each other. She said this momentum boost is huge going into their rivalry match this week against Choctaw. 

“Re-building a program is hard for everyone, but the girls continue to show up at practice and work hard, and tonight we got to see that,” said Coach. “This was a great win and as their coach, it was exciting to see a lot of the adjustments we have been working on during practice finally be put to play tonight. They needed this, and I couldn’t be more excited to see them continue to grow and get better each day. This is just the beginning!”

Next up: The Vikings face off against the Indians at home this Thursday, August 31 at 6:00pm.
