Game Recap

The Grant Tigers hosted the Sparta Spartans for a dogfight Thursday night at the District #60 finals. The State-Ranked Grant Tigers found themselves down 0-2 after the first two sets, losing 18-25 and 20-25. But the Tigers could not be counted out. True to form, they were tenacious and battled back to win set three 25-14 and set four 25-23. That set up the final set for the winner takes all. The Tigers looked to senior OH Taylor Wegener and junior middle hitter Kylie Patton for ammunition to put the game away. This is Grant’s 7th consecutive District title.

Strong hitting performances were put in by Taylor Wegner with 19 kills and Kylie Patton with 17 kills. Nicole Whan dished out 51 assists in the 5 set match while adding three service aces. Other ace serving came from Jill Arends with 3 aces, and Kim Settlemyre with 2 aces. Kylie Patton racked up 6 blocks while defensively Olivia Keelean chipped in 19 digs, Taylor Wegener added 18 digs, and both Nicole Whan and Jill Arends added 14 digs apiece.

After the match, Senior co-captain Taylor Wegener said, “We believe that you never give up, you stay positive, and you stay strong. Tonight we did exactly that.” Junior Olivia Keelean echoed that saying, ” We are so proud of how our team worked together. We didn’t give up and it paid off.” Junior Libero and team co-captain Jill Arends added, “I’m so proud of our team and the way we pushed all the way through. I can’t wait for Tuesday!”

The Tigers advance to Region #15 which will be hosted by Muskegon Orchard View on Tuesday. The Tigers will play the 7:30 match against South Christian in hopes to advance to the Thursday night Regional Finals at the same time slot.
