And for six straight years, Muskegon Catholic won the district championship.

But that all ended on Tuesday night when Fruitport Calvary stunned MCC in four sets of the district semifinals.

The Eagles will now play for the Division 4 district title on Thursday against Kent City Algoma Christian. The match will be at 4 p.m. at Muskegon Catholic, which is hosting the district.

A victory would bring the Fruitport Calvary volleyball team its first district championship in school history.

“This was a goal we have since last year,” said Fruitport Calvary Coach Ward Burns. “The girls were certainly pumped.”

Madison Heiss paced the Eagles against Muskegon Catholic with 24 kills and six blocks. Rebekeh Kozicki had 15 service points and eight kills and Audrey Vereeke had 12 service points and seven aces to go along with 26 assists and 12 digs.
