The Hesperia Volleyball team visited Big Rapids Saturday to defend the championship they earned at the Crossroads Academy Tournament last year.
It turned out to be a long day for the Panthers but they proved to be up to the challenge and...
...after nearly 8 hours of highly competitive play the team once again went home with the hardware fighting off a challenge from a strong Clare team they had split a pair of games with earlier in the day.
Due to time constraints the final match between the Panthers and the Pioneer was a one game winner-take-all and the teams went at it hard with Hesperia edging out Clare 25-23 to secure another trophy for the case.
“A pretty exhausting day but a thrilling final,” said Head Coach Monica Grimard. “It was very exciting for the girls to be back to back champs.”
