Sports Fest 2004 got off to a soggy start Monday night as rain soaked the outdoor facilities at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Ind.
The wet weather caused the regularly-scheduled baseball and softball games between the Indiana East and Indiana West squads to be postponed until Wednesday night, both starting at 6:30 p.m.
Inside Bethel's Weikamp Center, however, the volleyball action was in full swing and both semifinal matches were played to completion.
In the first match of the night, the Indiana Metro squad beat the Michigan All-Stars 21-9, 21-4 and 21-17.
The two teams also played out the final two games of the match with Metro winning 21-13 and 15-6.
While it was a less-than-stellar performance by the squad from Michigan, several players put forth strong performances.
Lindsey Davis of Berrien Springs led the team in kills with two.
Bridgett Blough of Lake Michigan Catholic registered a team-high three blocks and Edwardsburg's Jessica Rafalski came away with two blocks.
Diane Mitchell of Coloma served up three aces as did Niles' Sandy Molnar. Molnar also came up with two digs and Constantine's Angie Niblock registered three digs. Lake Michigan Catholic's Kris Wymer led the team with six digs.
On tap in tonight's Sports Fest action is the debut of the Michigan baseball, softball, girls' soccer and girls' basketball teams.
The Michigan baseball and softball teams will take on the Metro squads at 6:30 p.m.
The Michigan girls' soccer team will take on Metro at 7 p.m. and the Michigan girls' basketball team will also face Metro at 7 p.m.
