The Niles Varsity Volleyball Team swept Dowagiac in the first found of Districts tonight 25-20, 25-20, and 25-11. Niles had a mission tonight – to play with energy, heart, trust, and to take care of their teammates; I told that that if they did that, the score would take care of itself. I am so proud these girls. They have been working incredibly hard to keep coming together and improving as a team, and that hard work showed on the court. They were totally focused on each and every point and staying mentally tough one play at a time. They are celebrating the win, but they are focused in and excited to get back in the gym tomorrow to prepare for Wednesday. Niles is now 25-21-5 and will face Edwardsburg in round two.
