Northwest grabs 3-1 win over Aurora

AURORA — The Class B, No. 8 Northwest volleyball team earned a 25-21, 25-9, 24-26, 25-21 road win over Aurora Tuesday.

Makayla Rhoads led the Vikings with 17 kills and 16 digs, while Whitney Loman chipped in 13 kills and 25 digs. Mikyna Stoppkotte had five blocks, while Hannah Fletcher had 19 digs. Keraya Caspar dished out 17 assists, while Macie Middleton added 14. 

Northwest coach Lindsey Harders said defense was a key reason for the victory.

"We played great defense tonight," she said. "Whitney, Hannah and Makayla did a great job in the back row tonight and that made it hard for Aurora to get kills. 

"And Whitney and Makayla found success in the front row too. But Macie was a difference maker with her serving. She came out aggressive and got Aurora out of system."

Northwest will host a triangular with Lexington and Class C-1, No. 5 Kearney Catholic Thursday.
