THOMPSON FALLS – The Bigfork Valkyries knocked off Thompson Falls in a hard-fought District 7B volleyball match on Thursday, winning 25-18, 10-25, 21-25, 27-25, 15-11.

“A well-fought match,” Bigfork coach Schuyler Tudor said. “We came out really strong at the beginning and then the second game we struggled and then we had to fight our way back to try to gain momentum. Gosh I cannot say enough about our seniors. They fight really hard and they pull together to get this team motivated to win.”

Senior Brooke Fraley showcased her versatility with 15 kills and six service aces. Ahna Fox and Jaclyn Saunders are Bigfork’s other two seniors this season.

“They’ve been in the program for four years and this is really important to them,” Tudor said of her veterans. “They’re just really demonstrating great leadership right now.”
