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).
