Boyne was paired with Bellaire first who was coming into the night after a very impressive tournament appearance on Saturday in Pellston.
Fortunately for the Ramblers, said Boyne City Ramblers Varsity Volleyball Coach Mallory Slate, they showed up and did just what they needed to do in order to stop that winning streak taking set one 25-21 and then set two 25-18. Brooklyn Fitzpatrick came up big for the Ramblers leading with 6 kills followed by Annabelle Seelye who added 11 assists in the two sets.
Katelyn Gabos added 7 digs and had 8 for 10 on serve receptions.

Annabelle Seelye, Brooklyn Fitzpatrick, Gabby Musser, and Jillian Cain all contributed three kills.
Katelyn Gabos added 17 digs, 2 kills, and was a perfect 14/14 on serve receptions.
After a 15 minute referee break, the Ramblers came out as a different team and was unable to put anything together against Class A powerhouse Alpena, loosing set one 20-25 and set two 17-25.
“I was extremely happy about how the girls came out against Bellaire and was ready to play,” said Slate. “We knew they were going to be difficult but the girls were able to finally put together both our offense and defense and come out with a huge team win.”
Slate said TCC was a frustrating finish for them.
“It was just like Saturday against Onaway,” she said. “We come out strong in set one and then really struggle to keep that momentum up and end up loosing two really tight sets to give up the match. It is like two different Boyne City teams. During tryouts I really pushed with the girls that we are a GOOD team but in order to be one of those GREAT teams we have to figure out a way to get these tight wins under our belt and be able to finish. That is my goal for them that they can figure that out. We travel to Cadillac on Thursday for a tournament that is jam packed with talent, I hope we can turn it around tomorrow and be ready for what I am anticipating to be a challenging day on Thursday.”
