The North Platte Community College Knights Volleyball Team defended their home court Saturday afternoon by slaying the Trinidad State Junior College Trojans in three sets.

The battle played out during Sophomore Day for the Knights. The score was 25-15, 25-12, 25-12.

Alysen Daniels led with 10 kills. Taylor Hansen was right behind her with eight.

Erica Hopping contributed 25 assists, and Ruby Valle had 15 digs.

The Knights are now 7-9 on the season.

“I thought we played pretty disciplined volleyball and worked together as a team for that win,” said NPCC head volleyball coach Alexa McCall. “I’m proud of our sophomores and the leaders that they are. It was nice to get to recognize them in this crazy year we have had. I also thought some players came off the bench and played well for us, too.”

The Knights will take on McCook Community College at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 at the McDonald-Belton Gymnasium. A livestream will be available at
