SHELBY — Shelby hosted Ravenna in a girls volleyball match and to promote suicide awareness Tuesday night,
“The match was important to us, but the cause was the most important play of the night,” said Tigers head coach Thomas Weirich. “It will forever connect our two programs, and we hope to continue the tradition for many years to come.”
On top of all that happening in the pre-game ceremonies, Shelby sophomore Navea Gauthier recorded her 1,000th career kill, a milestone normally reserved for a senior.
The Tigers capped off the night by sweeping the Bulldogs in three sets, 25-19, 25-17 and 25-16 in a West Michigan Conference matchup.
Gauthier reached her milestone with a match-high 23 kills. She also scored 13 service points with four aces and had 12 digs on defense.
Morgan Weirich led the Tigers with 15 service points with two aces, 14 digs and three assists. Claire Gowell added five kills.
Shelby next travels to Fremont for a quad on Thursday night, at which Ravenna will also be competing.
