BUTTE — The No. 9 Viterbo V-Hawks overcame an early deficit and posted a 3-1 victory over No. 13 Montana Tech on Thursday at the HPER Complex on the first day of the Big Sky Volleyball Challenge.

Viterbo earned a four-set (19-25, 25-23, 25-22, 25-21) win over the Orediggers to collect their second victory of the day after beating Eastern Oregon University in four sets earlier on Thursday.
