...convincing 25-13, 25-12. 25-11 win over the Cardinals to give them a 14-4-1 record on the season.
“The girls did a great job of executing both offensively and defensively,” said Tiger Head Coach Tricia Schuitema. “We haven't played since Aug. 27, so they were excited to play.”
Sierra Schuitema posted 5 aces for the hosts while dishing up 18 assists and Kylie Patton fired off 9 kills. On defense Olivia Keelean led the team with 8 digs followed by Schuitema and Jill Arends who accounted for 6 apiece.
“I love this team’s competitiveness, their leadership, and their love for the game,” added Coach Schuitema.
The Tigers will head back on the road Saturday to compete in the Fruitport tournament.
