The Buccaneers defeated Hamilton (25-17, 25-17), Grant (25-21, 25-19) and

“I thought that our team really played together,” Head coach Aaron Smaka said. “It was the first time it felt like we had our speed offensively and our middles were playing well. Krysteena (Davis) and Ally (Knoll) both played well. We passed really well, and we just had a good tempo. We served the best we have all year. … When you put all those things together, you’re going to do well.”
Davis lead the Bucs with 24 kills and seven blocks.
Ally Knoll had 11 kills and five blocks, while Autumn Monsma added 15 kills and four blocks of her own.
Taylor Cramer also chipped in at the net with four blocks.

Grand Haven girl’s golf takes 5th at tourney
The Grand Haven girl’s golf team finished fifth at the OK-Red midseason golf tournament on Thursday.
“I thought they played well on stretches of holes, but on a couple holes … I think they were mentally thrown, and they would plop two or three in (the water),” said head coach Roger Glass. “They played decent, but when they had a bad hole it was a really bad hole.”
Martha Ramsey lead the Buccaneers with a 97. She was followed by:
Hailey Watkins (99), Meghan Hendrickson (100) and Anna Gagnon (112).
Glass said that he didn’t think his squad’s performance was indicative of where they fit in the OK-Red.
“I still think we’re capable of beating every team in the OK Red except East Kentwood,” Glass said. “But I’m not getting that low 40’s scorer on 9-holes. That’s what the other teams have. … I’ve got to get one of those, and eliminate some of those blow up holes.”
