UMATILLA – The Lady Vikings kept to their winning ways last weekend, posting victories over Riverside and Umatilla in Eastern Oregon League action to improve to 5-0.

“You go on the road and anytime you come back with two wins that is pretty good,” said Vale girls varsity basketball coach Jason Johnson.

The Lady Vikings beat Riverside 36-13 Friday and then defeated Umatilla 51-37 Saturday.

“Overall, you have to give our kids a lot of credit to come of there with wins, that’s really an accomplishment,” said Johnson.

Johnson said the Lady Vikings are “in good shape going forward.”

The Vale girls next play Friday at Irrigon.
