ORFORDVILLE - Dana Lewis sat next to the scorer's table, frustrated and bewildered.With their six-feet, two-inch middle blocker a spectator, the Cardinals were unable to get through their fourth rotation in the fifth game of a 17-25, 25-21, 25-16, 17-25, 15-7, loss to Orfordville Parkview.It was the Vikings' first victory over Brodhead since the turn of the millennium. It also reminded Lewis that the 2008 state tournament run is over and 2009 is still very much a work in progress for the freshman-laden club."If I'm not in, what am I supposed to do?" Lewis said. "I'm used to having another middle (hitter) that's as good as me or better, so it's a lot different. I'm trying to give them my best encouragement, but it's hard sitting there knowing they're not going to make the best choices, but I'm gonna hope that they do."
