|The Thornapple Kellogg Varsity Volleyball team opened its season with a 6-1 record at the WMVOA tournament, finishing in 2nd place out of 15 teams. It was a good start to the season. I was pleased with how they did, but I wish we could have finished stronger. They just need to play a bit more aggressively and consistently. But it was certainly a strong finish, especially considering we lost 6 solid seniors last season.
Kill leaders were Sydney LeMay with 45, Jessica Ziccarello with 39, and Sydney Krol with 25. Holly Dahlke tallied 130 assists. The team passed well overall and many players played a role in the defensive effort: Jessica Ziccarello led with 53 digs, while Dahlke and Krol had 36. Amy Ziccarello, LeMay and Erin Scheidel added 32, 31, and 30 digs respectively.
The Varsity plays again at the Northpointe Christian Invitational on Tuesday.
