The Lakers’ varsity volleyball team went 3-0 at Thursday’s home quad.
Spring Lake defeated Ravenna (25-21, 25-15), Shelby (25-14, 25-13) and Black River (25-14, 25-13), improving to 28-6-2 on the season.
“Passing and serving was key, and a big reason we could run many options on our offense,” coach Sarah Bulthuis said. “We have some players out with illness tonight, some the lineup was quite different. Everyone did a great job filling in and playing where they were needed.”
Kelsee Zuidema continued to lead the Lakers offensively as she pounded down 34 kills to go with 17 service points and three aces.
Courtney Kyser added 14 kills, 15 service points and two blocks, while Breanna Williams added 15 kills, six points and two blocks. Bre Burns chipped in with 15 kills.

SL SWIMMERS WIN FINAL DUAL MEET
The Lakers swam past Ludington on Thursday in their final dual meet of the season, winning 129-51.
“We were able to swim a few girls in different events tonight,” coach Penny Zacek said. “I really liked what I saw from Kelsea Burley in the 500 (freestyle), Annie Brechting in the 100 fly, Allyson Curtis in the 200 free and Sophia Kleinhecksel in the 100 back.
“All earned personal best times tonight in their events. We won 10 of 12 events. Now we focus for the next three weeks on our conference championship meet, which will be held on November 8-9 at Manistee.”
