Niles volleyball tunes up for post season

Published 5:13pm Thursday, October 31, 2013

The Niles volleyball team tuned up for the Big 16 Conference and MHSAA tournaments by competing in the Grand Rapids Christian mini-tournament Wednesday.

The Vikings were defeated by Forest Hills Central 25-21, 26-24 and 25-15 and to No. 1-ranked (Class D) 25-21, 18-25, 25-21 and 25-20.

“I’m thrilled with my team’s play,” Niles coach Jenny Nate said. “We need to keep playing this caliber competition in order to keep moving our program in the right direction. Our scores reflect how tough we played both teams and taking a set from the No. 1-ranked team in the state was a huge momentum builder to prepare us for the SMAC tourney this Saturday and districts against Mattawan next Tuesday.”
