Emeralds 3-0 in conference play
The Emeralds opened with a 25- 18 win in set one and put together an 11-0 run on their way to a 25-17 win in set two.
They went on to finish off the Patriots 25-16, recording their second straight Mid-Peninsula Conference victory.
“It was nice to keep things rolling in conference play,” Coach Amy Nixon said. “The girls hustled and communicated well all night. Westwood gave us a lot of free balls that we were able to convert into attacks.
We played strong throughout the match,” Nixon added.
Tuesday, the Emeralds kept the conference streak alive with a 3-1 win on the road in Gwinn.
Tied at one after the first two sets, a determined Emeralds squad took control and beat the Modeltowners 25-16 and 25-23 for the win.
“Gwinn is our biggest competition in the conference this year; beating them was huge for us,” Nixon said. “We served very tough and played a great defensive game. I am very proud of their determination and intensity.”
Manistique volleyball will host Norway tonight (Thursday, after press time) and Negaunee next Tuesday.
