The Niles Varsity Volleyball Team defeated Dowagiac in the District Semifinal tonight 19-25, 25-22, 25-11, and 25-17. We came out tense and had a slow start. The second set, we started to pick up the energy and calm down and pulled out the win, but it was the third set when we really relaxed, played like a team, and started to communicate. Then, we were able to control the game and the runs for the next two sets. We will refocus at practice tomorrow and work faster, harder, and smarter to prepare for the District Championship Saturday against Edwardsburg.
