It wasn't the start that the Lady Vikings were hoping for Wednesday night in Couer d'Alene as Big Bend was swept by North Idaho in the opening match of their Northwest Athletic Conference schedule.

The Cardinals had big nights from outside/middle hitters Journey Tupea and Taylor Foster who had 11 and 10 kills respectively — Tupea also added 12 digs in the win.

Big Bend was led offensively by Sadie Nielsen and Brynn McKnight who had 7 and 6 kills in the loss. Defensively Ashlee Adams recorded 10 digs.

The Lady Vikings will look to get back in the win column this weekend when they travel to Centralia for a crossover tournament Saturday and Sunday.
