Game Recap

The Niles Varsity Volleyball Team battled a tough South Haven team to win round one of Class B districts 25-17, 25-18, 18-25, and 28-26. We came out strong and put a block on their outside hitter right away and put a lot of pressure on her which set the standard for the first and second sets. We knew we had to have the block and attack aggressively from all angles to wear them down. During the third set, we made a few too many errors, and she came at us with a tough back row attack, and they were able to get a lead on us, and we made a run but couldn’t close the gap. We regrouped and went out in the fourth set, and it stayed tight throughout the entire set. They had a home court advantage, and we knew we had to really focus mentally and keep our composure so that we didn’t let the momentum shift. We were able to keep that control and finished strong pulling out the final two point edge to win the match. I’m proud of my team; they are practicing as hard now as they were on day one of our season, and in these tight matches, it really shows up. Not only are they putting in 100% physically, they also put that same effort into their mental game and studying film. Niles is now 37-8-4, ranked 4th in the state in Class B, and will take on Coloma in round two on Wednesday night.
