“To say this was a team effort is an understatement. All the girls chipped in and did the best they could for this win,” said Boyne City Varsity Volleyball Coach Mallory Slate.
“We did not play our game on Tuesday night and it was a huge factor today was making sure we play ‘our game’ and that’s just what the girls did. Our serve receive in that first game was a bit rocky which really hurt us, but the girls changed that around going into the next three games.”
She added, “I couldn’t be more proud of how they were able to forget about everything and come out with a clean slate today. We have a week off and face rivals Charlevoix on Thursday. There is a lot we still need to work on but I know the girls will be ready for whatever I present to them in order to be ready for Charlevoix.”
