Varsity drops 2, JV takes 2

GARDEN – The Big Bay de Noc volleyball teams played backto back games against Bark River and Carney Nedeau on Monday and Tuesday. Although the varsity lost both match-ups, neither team could say it was an easy task taking down the Black Bears.

“The girls did very well and played hard,” varsity coach Gail Demars said. “We have a very talented bunch, and they continue to show improvement each time they take to the court, we just did not get off to a good start in each of our games this week.”

While the varsity looks for an early identity, the junior varsity was on a roll winning both matches against Bark River and Carney.

“The girls are having a fantastic year,” coach Julie Hardy said. “I really stressed early on that we can’t win if we don’t play as a team, and since then, this team has dominated.”

The strategy for her young squad is paying dividends, as they improve to 9-2 on the season.
