Girls eyeing top spot

MANISTIQUE – It’s a show down of two of the conference best tonight (Thursday), when the Lady Emeralds’ volleyball team plays host to the Iron Mountain Mountaineers.

Coach Amy Nixon is hoping her team’s 3-0 domination of the Negaunee Miners on the road Tuesday will play a key role in taking over sole possession of the Mid-Peninsula Conference.

Manistique defeated the Miners in three straight sets (25-16, 25-17, 25-17).

“We played well as a team and our serve receive continues to show a big improvement,” Nixon said. “This win was a good confidence booster going into Iron Mountain.”

The Emerald junior varsity lost 2-1 (16-25, 25-23, 15-25).

Manistique-Negaunee: Shanel Bosanic, four serve receives, three digs; Vanessa McNamara, one dig; Maryse Hinkson, one serve receives, one dig, five assists, one kill; Kaitlyn Ziminski, three serve receives, two digs; Raeanne Robinson, two aces, 14 serve receives, five digs, three kills; Morgan Kangas, one serve receives; Harley Troxler, one serve receives; Leah Cook, two serve receives; Kelsy Gonyea, three aces, four serve receives, three digs, one kill; Monica Giles, three aces, six serve receives, ten digs, five kills, three blocks; Cayla Strasser, two aces, three serve receives, three digs, two kills; Maggie Morrison, one ace, three serve receives, six digs, four kills.
