Lakeview -The Big Rapids Cardinal volleyball team closed out their Central State Activities Association season with a 5-4 record after a hard-fought win over Lakeview; 25-15, 20-25, 13-25, 25-16, 15-11.
Offensively the Cardinals were lead by Madeline White and Lauren Maginnis with five service aces. Hannah Dadles had four. The leading hitters on the night were White with 11 kills. Cara Jensen and Emily Fisk each had nine. Maginnis had 27 assists.
Defensively Big Rapids got four blocks from Dadles and two from Fisk. Jensen had 15 digs.
“I was really impressed with Lakeview’s defensive tenacity. They were digging up everything,” said Cardinal coach Chris Jensen. “We may have gotten a little complacent after the first set. But the girls showed great resolve in scratching out the last two wins. We played through being tentative and forced the action with our serving and hitting.”
