2018 record: 19-3 (13-0 Olympic)

Outlook: The Vikings have been the West Sound’s most consistent program over the past decade, winning the last six Olympic League titles and ten of the past 11 while also qualifying for the 2A state tournament eight times in the past nine seasons. They return junior Riley Rabedeaux, who led the team with 285 kills and also had 407 digs and 47 aces. Noelani Barreith served as team captain and plays everywhere on the court, finishing last year with 256 kills, 423 digs and 51 aces. The Vikings have an excellent setter and defender in Carver and a second capable setter in Leage. The goals remain the same for the volleyball team and they have the talent to achieve them.
