The Vikings volleyball team fell to .500 in the Northwest Athletic Conference's East Region on Saturday after a 3-1 loss to Treasure Valley.

Offensively, Big Bend matched Treasure Valley in Kills (41-39) but did amass 12 more hitting errors (27-15) than the Chukars — 10 in the final set. Those errors proved costly with BBCC losing its three matches by a combined total of 18 points.

Vikings freshman Brynn McKnight led Big Bend with 13 Kills and 9 digs. Sadi Nielsen and Payson Griner added 8 and 7 kills respectively. Defensively Ashlee Adams had 20 digs and Kiana Miller added 14. Martina Wilder had 19 assists.

After Saturday's loss, Big Bend sits in a two-way tie for 4th place (with Walla Walla) with two-thirds of the conference schedule still in front of them. 

The Lady Vikings (13-8, 3-3) will look to get back into the win column on Wednesday night when they host Columbia Basin College (13-14, 2-5) at 6 p.m. inside the Peter DeVries Center.
