Listen live online Wednesday night on the Slocum Sports Network to high school volleyball as the Gull Lake Blue Devils host the Mattawan Wildcats. It’s the second time these teams have met in 2017, as Mattawan took a tight 2-1 win two weeks ago in the Portage Central mini tournament. Recent history has also favored Mattawan, as Gull Lake last defeated the Wildcats in the 2012 SMAC tournament.
It is also the first division match of 2017 in a very tough SMAC East, which also boasts the impressive Kalamazoo Central and Lakeview squads, along with a much improved Loy Norrix. Mattawan enters Wednesday at 19-3 overall with Gull Lake at 17-5-1.
Both Gull Lake and Mattawan have received statewide attention for their success. In the newest Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association poll, Mattawan is ninth best in Class A with Gull Lake earning a honorable mention. In the latest rankings by Michigan High School Volleyball Insider, Gull Lake is 11th best in Class A, one spot better than 12th-ranked Mattawan.
