The Western Michigan Christian volleyball team knocked off a pesky Saugatuck squad in a hard Division 3 district semifinal match on Wednesday.
The Warriors needed four games to top the Indiains, winning with scores of 25-22, 25-16, 18-25 and 25-15.
“Saugatuck was much stronger than we anticipated,” said Head Coach Trent Smillie. “We watched them on Monday versus Black River, but tonight they stepped it up two notches.”
Leading the way for the Warriors were the Wiersema sisters. Maddie Wiersema racked up 30 digs, three blocks and two aces while Kyla Wiersema tallied 21 kills, 13 digs and made three blocks.
Kendal Young drove WMC’s offense with setting up consistent kill opportunities at the net. The senior finished with 48 assists.
Also leading for WMC was Hannah Heiss with nine kills, Libby Mast added six kills and Haley Breuker offered up 19 digs.
Western Michigan Christian is now 45-5 overall visits North Muskegon on Thursday for a 6 p.m. Division 3 district final match.
