Three Rivers’ volleyball team left Berrien Spring’s quad Tuesday with three more victories in a tuneup going into this weekend’s Wolverine Conference tournament. The Wildcats beat White Pigeon 25-14, 25-16, defeated Lawton 25-5, 25-21 and took down Berrien Springs 118-25, 26-24, 15-7.
The team improved to 36-7-6 overall as a result of all-around solid play, including 18 total aces. Hannah Landis had six of them to go along with 11 kills and 14 digs. Carly Nichols served seven aces and recorded 14 kills and 27 digs, Teagan Reeves tallied five aces, 28 kills and 12 digs. Kalie Cole finished with 55 assists.
“Our first two matches were good,” Three Rivers coach Brandy Stalhood said. “We ran our offense effectively and passes well. We needed to pick it up a notch to go toe to toe with Berrien. We struggled the first game with serve receive and tip coverage. We did better in the second, then in the third we got them off balance and challenged them more offensively. It was nice to see us win and not have to come from behind in the third.”
White Pigeon results were not reported.
