Freshman and JV Volleyball hit the court


 

The JV Volleyball girls traveled to Reeths Puffer for a tournament this past Saturday, where they advanced to the semifinals and finished 3-2 on the day. While they were defeated in the semifinals match against Reeths Puffer, they greatly improved their team play by supporting each other on the court and communicating, elements that had been lacking prior to the tournament.

With the team suffering from injuries, all players stepped up to contribute their best effort. Defensive specialist Kaitlyn Coons led the team in digs with 48, while outside hitter Brooke Morris led the team in kills with 7. Setter Sienna Wight provided 17 set assists and defensive specialists Lindsay Lehman and Cassie Rivard provided solid defense and passes to target throughout each match. Middle hitters Carlee Mouthaan and Holly Scheer led the team in solo blocks with 3 each. Right side hitters Sydnee Jager and Anna Behrenwald stepped in to provide much needed defensive coverage and court awareness.

According to head coach Ashley Fisher, “the girls came together and played as a team, which has been our main goal all season. I am proud of the way they supported each other on the court and the energy they played with throughout each game.”

The next game for the team is an invitational this Saturday, September 20th at Sparta. Their first home game of the season will be Tuesday, September 23rd against Wyoming Park at 5:00pm. Come out and support your Red Hawk Volleyball players!

It was a great week of basketball for the Cedar Springs JV girls as they recorded two victories last week. After the long holiday break, the JV Red Hawks traveled to Kenowa Hills on Monday, January 3. Both teams came ready to play with an exciting first half and kept the scoring close. The two teams exchanged the lead five times and tied the game four times before the halftime buzzer. The Red Hawks went to the locker room behind by one point 14-15.
The second half began as the first half left off. The teams again tied the game once in the 3rd quarter and exchanged the lead six times in the second half. Finally the relentless pressure of the defense sealed the victory for the lady Red Hawks with a final score of 32-27. Jeanette Sukstas, Sommer VanDyke, Shaelyn Fasel, Allie Veltkamp and Abby VanDusen had a combined total of 25 steals. Allie Veltkamp was high in scoring with Sommer Vandyke, Molly Caniff, Abby VanDusen and Tamar Clark adding to the total points.
“The team played with integrity and teamwork,” commented Coach Tom Welsh.

They fell behind at the end of the first quarter 8–9 and went to the locker room down 16–19 at the half. The Red Hawks came back strong in the third quarter and took the lead 33-29. Coopersville came back in the forth by scoring 10 points to end the game in a tie 39–39 and send the game to overtime.
The girls went into overtime determined to win with four Red Hawk girls scoring a combined 13 points in the overtime period to beat Coopersville 52-45. “It was an even game, but we really picked up the intensity once the game hit overtime,” noted Coach Welsh.
