The 7th grade gold volleyball team came together to play well and celebrate some wins during its annual weekend invitational at Parkside Jackson.
Much improvement for this team was seen as they competed against Dexter, Pinckney, and Jackson in their pool play series splitting the games each time, which landed the team with three wins and three losses.
This earned them a 6th seed for bracket play where they battled hard vs Tecumseh before losing the final set and match.
Top consistent servers for the day were Madeline McKale, Maggie McKale and Avery Lay.
Other strong servers were Shea Hephner, Annabelle Jaynes, Amy Budd and Alex Richards.
Kennedy Anderson had a couple good sets and provided good energy for the team.
