Farwell spikers drop 4 to Reed City

The Farwell varsity volleyball team had its season come to an end Tuesday night, falling to Reed City in four sets in the opening round of the Clare district.

“We played well,” Farwell head coach Jacob Sullivan said. “Reed City is a good team who hits the ball extremely well. We blocked well and continued to make the hitters change what they wanted to do.”

The Lady Eagles won the first set 25-23, though the Lady Coyotes won the next three 25-23, 25-17 and 26-24 to claim the contest.

“Our players never gave up and we fought back to almost take the fourth set,” Sullivan said. “Everyone contributed 100 percent. It’s a tough loss but still a good end to our season.”

Caron White led the team with 17 kills, had four blocks and added two digs and two aces, Jenna Hamming had 14 kills, 13 digs and six blocks with Emily Rawson adding 29 assists.

On Thursday, Oct. 25 the Lady Eagles played a non-conference game against Coleman, picking up a four set win 22-25, 25-23, 25-13 and 25-18.

“We played well, we passed the ball well which allowed us to run our offense and hit the ball hard,” Sullivan said.

Hamming had 12 kills, White added 10 and Rawson contributed 20 assists.

Farwell wrapped up Jack Pine Conference play on Wednesday Oct. 24 at a quad match in Meridian. The Lady Eagles dropped their first match to Meridian 29-27 and 25-9, fell to Clare 18-25, 25-12 and 25-13 and lost to Houghton Lake 25-14 and 25-16.

White had 14 kills and seven blocks on the night, Hamming had 12 kills, Rawson had 17 assists and Lauren Ringwalt had nine digs.

Farwell ends its season 11-22-1 overall and 3-11 in the Jack Pine Conference.
