Boyne City starts 1-0 in the Lake Michigan Conference after beating Harbor Springs 3-0 on Thursday Sept. 12.
The Ramblers started out strong both offensively and defensively behind Libero Katelyn Gabos and Setter Annabelle Seelye.
Maggee Behling went on a 6 point serving run followed by a 5 point serving run by Gabby Musser to end the first set with a 25-14 win.
Harbor made some adjustments and started picking apart Boyne’s defense with tips but the Ramblers rallied back and were able to take set two 25-21.
Set three was all Ramblers again behind a 9-point serving run by Jillian Cain and great defense by Chelsey Coleman and Gabos to give the Ramblers the win 25-13.
This win felt truly like a team win.
Every single one of our players got some decent playing time in and it feels good to know that whoever we have on the court at the time will do what they need to do in order to get the job done.
It’s a great way to start out conference play, but we have a lot of work to do in order to prepare for Kalkaska who we will see next Thursday.

#13 Middle Hitter Josee Behling: 6 kills

Sept. 10 volleyball results
Boyne City wins thrilling 5 set match against Cheboygan on Sept. 10.
The Chiefs came out strong in game one with tremendous serving to knock Boyne out of set one with a 15-25 win.
The Ramblers offense took the reins and powered through Cheboygan defense returning the favor and taking set two 25-12 and set three 25-19.
With Boyne needing to just win one more set to take the match Cheboygan came out on fire taking a 16-5 lead in set four.
Boyne was able to rally back and tie up the game at 18-18 but the hitting from Angie S was too much for Boyne defense and the Chiefs took set four 21-25.
Set five was all Boyne City.
Annabelle Seelye got the Ramblers up 11-0 with some great serving and Cheboygan couldn’t put anything together after that. Boyne took set five 15-6.
Winning five set matches is our main focus this year.
It has been a struggle for us in the past, we loose all momentum and get flustered when we are down a few points.
Tonight I was happy with how excited the girls were and how they kept up the intensity even when we started out with that first loss.
I have such a Senior heavy team that I just keep drilling into them that this is the last time they will play on the volleyball court for Boyne City so they might as well go out and have fun and play together as a team, that’s exactly what they did tonight and it paid off.
