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.

Game Recap

The Niles Freshmen Volleyball took second at the 2017 SMAC Freshmen Volleyball Tournament on Saturday. The Lady Vikes finished 4-2 on the day, losing to Grandville in the Championship match. It was a very long day for the girls; they went undefeated in the morning, beating Kalamazoo Christian, Portage Central, and Lakeshore. They then lost to Grandville, which put them in the consolation bracket. They beat Lakeshore in the semi finals to put them in the Championship game against Grandville again. Despite how amazing the Vikings played, the long day got the best of them and they just couldn’t put the ball down against the very strong Grandville team. I could not be more proud of how the girls finished their season. They played their best volleyball all day long, and battled against some very tough opponents. The day and their season ended at 9:00 at night with many tears of triumph for an amazing season.

Game Recap

The Niles JV Lady Vikes went undefeated at the JV SMAC Tournament on Saturday and took first place. Niles defeated Loy Norrix 25-8, 25-13 and defeated Portage Northern 25-16, 29-27 in pool play. They were then seeded in the gold bracket with the other first place finishers. Niles then defeated Battle Creek Lakeview 25-13, 25-16 and defeated Gull Lake 25-16, 25-13 to take the tournament. The girls played very smart ball today and worked together perfectly. We have had a couple bumps in our season and I was very proud and over joyed with the way the girls ended the season. Game play came together and each girl knew exactly what their role was today. As a coach I couldn’t be any happier for the work these girls put in this season. It was the perfect way to end the season. The Niles JV Lady Vikes Volleyball team end the season 29-13-2.
