V-Ball: Grant Makes It 4 In A Row
By N3 Sports Team
With their win over Newaygo Tuesday night the Tigers completed a sweep through the CSAA Gold with a perfect 7-0 record and secured the conference championship for the 4th year in a row.
“We have an amazing group of young ladies representing our school and the volleyball program,” said Head Coach Tricia Schuitema. “ I can't say enough good things about their leadership, their drive, and...
...their athleticism. These are truly a great group of girls to coach and I'm blessed to have them in our program.”
It was senior night and the core group of Laura Bouwkamp, Gwen Fisk, Ashley Herin, and Sierra Schuitema were honored for their contributions to the success the Tiger team has achieved on the court.
“I've had Sierra on varsity for four years now, Laura for a little over three years, and Ashley and Gwen were pulled up at the end of their sophomore seasons,” stated the coach. “They've put a lot of effort and energy into the program and I'm very thankful for their leadership. They have left an impactful legacy in our program. “
Bouwkamp recorded 14 kills on the night and Kylie Patton added 10 more while Bouwkamp (18) Taylor Wegener (15) and Herin (10) each reached double figures in digs. Schuitema and Olivia Keelean posted a pair of aces apiece and Schuitema finished with 29 assists.
Grant’s record is now 37-9-1 and on Thursday they will play host to Ludington, Saranac, and Union beginning at 5pm.
