Varsity volleyball squad wins 2-1 vs. Reed City, Oscoda
Grayling High School’s varsity girls volleyball team defeated Reed City and Oscoda during a three-team meet hosted by the Vikings at the Grayling Middle School on Tuesday night.
The Vikings won 2-1 vs. Reed City during the first series of the meet.
“I think the girls played well,” Coach Tim Zigila said. “I thought Reed City we were pretty evenly matched with. The girls did a good job of staying composed. The kids are playing well right now.”
In game one of the Grayling vs. Oscoda match, the Owls won 30-28.
The Vikings rebounded with a 25-18 victory in game two, tying the series at one game apiece.
Grayling won the series with a 15-8 victory in game three.
“That was intense. Super intense,” Coach Zigila said. “Especially after that first game, we talked about winning one so we could get two. I think we settled in after that. After that first game I thought we responded well. That third game, I think we controlled the ball really, really well. We did what we wanted to do.”
Due to construction of the Viking Activity Center – a new addition to Grayling High School’s physical education facilities – the GHS volleyball teams have been practicing and playing home matches at the middle school. The program expects to be back at the high school this week.
Coach Zigila said the team appreciated the crowd support during Tuesday’s home meet at the Grayling Middle School.
“It was nice to see the football team here. Nice to see the soccer team here,” Coach Zigila said.
The Vikings will host Gladwin on Monday, September 9.
