Congratulations to both the 7th and 8th grade volleyball teams as they picked up a non-league win over Green on Thursday.
The 7th grade team won in three games – scores were 25-22, 28-30 and 25-12. Madison Burkhart led the team with 15 service points. Also contributing in the win were Sydney Peterson with 12 points and Aubrey McCracken with 7 points. Leading the team in the back row were Emmie Morrison and Sophia Wulff. Morrison gets the hustle award for her back row defense, consistent serve-receive and great plays in the game. Peterson led in assists, with Burkhart and Aubrey McCracken leading at the net. Gabby Dick finished the third game with 3 strong serves to secure the win. The 7th grade team ends their week at 11-1.
The 8th grade team won in two games – scores were 25-14 and 25-13. Ronnie Meinen led the team with 11 strong service points and 3 blocks. Joy Prater served well adding 6 points and Mallory Meinen and Emma Gotto added 5 points each. The Comet defense was solid overall with a lot of hustle and all front row players played consistent too. The 8th grade team ends their week at 15-0.
The girls take on Norton and Ravenna next week at home.
