Varsity volleyball bounces back with a clean sweep of Northview

After a hard-fought weekend, varsity volleyball would win in just three sets against the Wildcats of Northview. FHC won all three sets by scores of 25-15, 25-17, and 25-14.

This was the first game back for the Rangers after their tough weekend; assistant coach Kevin Zaschak was fired up about the win.

“The win keeps us in the chase for the conference title. We have a big week coming up with Byron Center and Northern prior to the conference tournament,” coach Zaschak said. “We’ve played FHN twice already this year and they are playing very well at the moment, so it will be a nice test for our program, and where we’re at.”

In the stat book, the big three of seniors Brooklyn Conner and Sophie Shields along with junior Sarah Dunn achieved 33 kills, 2 aces, 3 solo blocks, 23 digs, and 18 receptions. Among the rest, sophomore Avery Weslow cleaned up shop with 9 kills, 2 aces, 8 digs, and 6 receptions.

It was a team goal to win this game; it could earn back-to-back wins for the girls.

“It set a statement since we weren’t a full team this weekend and now that everyone is back, beating them at home showed that we are back and ready for the next team,” Brooklyn said.

The 25-4-1 Rangers now move on to a big weekend tournament at Jenison. FHC will look to work hard and get ready for another big weekend.

“We’ve focused on our defense and blocking the past week. To get our offense running, we have to shore up our defense. That will be a key component to a postseason and conference run. Currently, we’re 25-4 and having a fantastic year but have important goals moving forward,” coach Zaschak said.
