Listen live online Tuesday evening on the Slocum Sports Network as the Schoolcraft Eagles host the Kalamazoo Christian Comets in the first SAC Valley Division contest of 2017 for both teams. Last season’s five-set winner for the Comets ultimately sealed the Valley title for Kalamazoo Christian, who went 6-0 to Schoolcraft’s 5-1 within the division.
Kalamazoo Christian enters this contest at 9-5-1 overall, staying solid despite having to replace three All-State selections from last year. They do bring back honorable mention SAC Valley pick Carley Broekhuizen. The Comets were ranked 17th in Class C by Michigan High School Volleyball Insider last week.
Schoolcraft was placed 11th in the same poll and 8th in the Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association poll. The Eagles sit at 10-4-2 overall*, going 3-3 over the weekend in a tough Lakeview Invitational against many larger schools. Schoolcraft returns second-team All-State selection Andelyn Simkins, who earned that honor as a freshman last season.
Listen live to Tuesday’s match online on the Slocum Sports Network with a scheduled first serve at 7 p.m. from Schoolcraft. The start time may vary due to the prior JV contest.
*Schoolcraft’s record has not been confirmed 100%, but I believe this is correct.
