Three Rivers’ bid for the school’s first volleyball regional title was thwarted Thursday night. The Wildcats were knocked out by Wolverine Conference champions Niles 25-18, 27-25, 25-16. It’s only the second-ever regional title for the Vikings.
For TR, the season will still be one to remember for their deepest-ever postseason run. The Wildcats will graduate seniors Macy Ivins, Rylie Glass, Zoe McGlothlen, Abbie Thompson, Lydia Jepsen, and Caleigh Barth.
Niles will face Grand Rapids Christian in the Division 2 quarterfinal Tuesday hosted by GR South Christian.
