Varsity Volleyball Eagles battled it out with the Mendon Hornets in several
close games. The Eagles fell with a score of 2-3 in the state quarterfinals
The Lady Eagles fought their way through five games, bumping, spiking and
setting their way through point after point. While the Eagles lost 18-25 in the
first game, they didn’t give up. In the second game, the Eagles came back
with a great win, 25-19. After a very close third game, Mendon won 25-20.
Schoolcraft again played another very close game, ending in a victory by the
Eagles, 25-21. Eagles have won two games, and the Hornets have won two as
well. By the end of the fifth game, Mendon won 15-9. Mendon will advance to
the Class C state semifinals.
Coach Erin Onken said, “They were fantastic, they did everything I asked of
them. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
For many of the seniors on the team, their high school volleyball days are
nearing an end. That doesn’t mean they weren’t proud or happy of all the hard
work that was put in on the court.
“I am so proud of my team. Even though the game didn’t come out how we
wanted, we played our hardest, and I love every single one of my teammates,”
said senior Kari Feddema.
Senior Sidney Haverdink said, “I love them all so much. We had a great season
and we met all of our goals. Even though we didn’t go as far as we wanted, I
am so proud of all of them!”
