BOWDLE – Aberdeen Christian racked up 17 ace serves and picked up its 12th straight victory with a 25-16, 25-8, 25-13 non-conference volleyball win over North Central Thursday night.

Mary Fites recorded five aces and Ruth Hulscher had four in the win.

“I was happy to see Mary and Ruth go for it behind the line tonight,” said Christian coach Maggie Jett. “They have both been working hard on their serves and both really improved their accuracy and aggressiveness to make the other team have to work hard at serve receive.”

Hanna Miller topped the Knights with eight kills, while Fites finished with seven.

Christian totaled 27 kills as a team.

The fourth-rated Knights are now 13-1 on the season.

Christian hosts Herreid-Selby Area on Tuesday.
