After an outstanding 51-11-1 season, Grant Volleyball team members have been honored for their play with postseason awards. With kudos from Near North Now going to Coach Schuitema and all her team members for a fine season, we would also like to acknowledge the special honors earned by the talented team and players.
The Grant Volleyball student-athletes earned Team Academic All State with a 3.77 team GPA. On the court, the team earned Conference, District and Regional Championships and played in the MHSAA Class B State Tournament Quarterfinals.
Team members also...
...received honors for their efforts in the exceptional season. Junior Taylor Wegener was named All-Conference Honorable Mention and Sophomore Kylie Patton was selected to the All-Conference team. Senior Laura Bouwkamp was named Individual Academic All-State with a 4.0 GPA, Michigan All-State Honorable Mention and All-Region for the second year in a row, and All-Conference for her third year.
