Our girls started the day a little slow against Fruitport, falling behind 11-17 in set 1 and mounting a huge comeback to win the set 30-28. We dropped the next two sets to Fruitport to lose our first match in pool play. We found our offensive groove against Leland where Belle Gorsline paced us with a .600 hitting percentage and no errors in the match.The team would go on the sweep the rest of the sets played in pool play to finish 1st in our pool.
Montague was our first match in Gold Bracket play. The Pioneers started slow in set 1, but ended up turning on the pressure by tallying 9 aces in the match and having Belle Gorsline, Olivia Bergsma, and Becca Meyer-Rasmussen all finishing with above a .200 hitting percentage.
Our semifinal match against Northville was a different story. As a team, we ended up with only 15 kills in the match and 13 hitting errors which lead to a hitting .038 percentage. The team was strong at the serve line for most of the day until serving only 2 aces to our 7 errors in our loss to Northville in the semifinal. The team showed a high level of ability and a mature mentality throughout the day.
