The volleyball team played a very scrappy North Muskegon team in the district semi-finals and came out with the victory 3-1. Scores of the match were 25-19, 16-25, 25-19 and 25-16. Both teams played some very tough defense. The Norseman made it difficult for the eagles to find the holes on offense. The Lady Eagles did not give up and fought hard until the very end. Kassidy Heeringa and Blaire Mortensen ran the offense and finished with 18 and 16 assists respectively. Offensively Kassidy Heeringa led with 16 kills, followed up by Kelsey Krueger with 8, Meghan Boyd and Kaitlyn Geers each with 7 and Haley Bracewell with 5. Haley did a great job on the front line stuffing 4 blocks back at them, while Kaitlyn Geers added 2.5 blocks.
Your Lady Eagles will once again face off with the Ravenna Bulldogs in the district final on Friday night at 7:00 pm. We had a great student section and fan following in the semi-finals, but would like to fill the stands with even more of our fans. We must out number the Bulldog fans!! The team has requested a white out and would like to see you all there to show your support.
