The final week of the volleyball regular season has arrived and Mendon tested themselves Monday by hosting Three Rivers. The match went the distance with the Wildcats narrowly winning in five; 25-16, 25-23, 22-25, 23-25, 15-12.
That ends the regular season for TR, who will be hosting their district next week. The Wildcats will play in the 5:30 p.m. semifinal next Wednesday against Comstock.
The Hornets still have a quad at Coldwater Wednesday before ending their regular season campaign. Their postseason begins next Wednesday at Athens against either the highly-ranked host or Burr Oak at 5:30 p.m.
