Yesterday was a great day to be a COMET! Both our 7th and 8th grade middle school volleyball teams came to play and defeated our arch rivals the Norton Panthers.
The 7th graders got things started with a win in three games – 25-6, 15-25 and 25-22. The team easily defeated the Panthers in game one, but Norton fought back and won game two. Game three was an action filled nail biter with our Comets coming out on top! Leading the way for the Comets was Madi Burkhart with 15 service points. Sydney Peterson led in assists and added 12 service points in the win. The game was intense and both teams gave it their all. The 7th grade team is now 12-1.
The 8th grade team finished the afternoon winning 25-14 and 25-18. Our Comets played with confidence and consistency. Brooke Mirka led the team with 8 service points. Lexi Dimeff and Jordynn Rafferty added 7 points each. Ronnie Meinen led offensively with several kills at the net and blocks. The 8th grade team is now 16-0.
Good luck to our teams as they play at home against the Ravenna Ravens on Wednesday at 4:00. Go Comets!!
