WESTERN MICHIGAN CHRISTIAN
WARRIOR SPIKERS SWEEP LUDINGTON
The Western Michigan Christian volleyball squad scored a three-set sweep of Lakes Eight Conference rival Ludington on Tuesday by scores of 25-20, 25-13 and 25-13.
"The first set was a battle back and forth until about 20 points, then we pulled away at the end," said WMC head coach Trent Smillie. "The second and third sets, our blocking, defense and serving took over, giving us a comfortable lead in both sets.
"We passed and set well tonight, which really limited their service runs. Meghan Heiss and Rebecca TerHaar earned us 30 of our 75 points from behind the service line and that was huge. Our conference tournament is a week from Saturday in Manistee, and with the win tonight, we will be the No. 1 seed. Hopefully, we can maintain that seed in Manistee."
Anna Sytsema recorded eight kills, 11 digs and two blocks to lead the Warriors, while Taylor Kolkema added eight kills. Rebecca TerHaar led the team in aces with seven and blocks with three, while Alisha Leffring led the team in assists with 27 and Claudia Kingma led the team in digs with 13.
The Warriors improve to 27-9-1 overall and will play Covenant Christian on Thursday, followed by the GMAA tournament at Reeths-Puffer on Saturday.
WARRIOR SOCCER ROUTS COVENANT CHRISTIAN
The Western Michigan Christian boys soccer team rolled past Covenant Christian in a 5-0 shutout win in non-conference action Tuesday.
The game started slow, with neither teams finding a difference-making goal in the first 40 minutes. The Warrior attack eventually broke through, however, as WMC tallied five second-half goals to pull away for the sizable win.
Hayden Hubers, Isaac VanHoeeven, Andrew Rasmussen, Michael Masumpa and Caleb Minasian each scored goals to lead the Warriors, while Isaiah Barco-Morales, Brandon Fles and Logan Pollack each recorded one assist.
"Although the 80-degree weather was taking its toll on both teams, I think our conditioning and hard work paid off for the second 40 minutes," said WMC head coach David Hulings. "With five goals in the second half, it showed some great determination by our team. Our captains took over at the half, and it was just great leadership by the four of them (Hayden, Brant Zeerip, Joe Hill and Brandon). I was very proud of how they stepped up and changed the mindset and work ethic of the team."
The Warriors improve to 15-1-3 overall on the season and wrap up their regular season with a non-conference road match with Mona Shores on Thursday.
Junior varsity: WMC defeated Covenant, 3-2. Beau Campbell scored off a cross from Sam VanOrman, while Jamie Cho and Owen Varnado each added a goal.
