Spring Lake swept through Thursday’s volleyball quad at NorthPointe Christian, in the process earning its 40th win of the season.

The Lakers beat Western Michigan Christian (25-10, 27-25), NorthPointe Christian (27-25, 21-25, 15-12) and Comstock Park (25-19, 25-16).

“These were three good wins,” said coach Sarah Bulthuis, whose Lakers are now 40-8-2 on the year. “Earlier in the season, we lost to WMC, so we made some adjustments and the team executed very well. We had to come from behind in the second set to earn the win.”

Bulthuis said the tough competition should serve as a good warm-up for next week’s Class B district tournament, which begin Monday at Fruitport.

Kelsee Zuidema finished with 28 kills, 34 digs, 24 service points and seven aces for the Lakers, while Lydia Suchecki chipped in with 19 kills.

Courtney Kyser had 10 kills, 16 points, four aces, four blocks and five digs, while Breanna Williams also had 10 kills to go with 13 digs, 25 points and three aces.

Rachel Pennington finished with a team-high 53 digs, while Karley Engelsman contributed 53 assists and 17 digs.

Junior Varsity: WMC closed out its season with a win over WMC, 16-25, 25-22, 15-8. Anna Denslow finished with 10 assists, six digs and three aces for the Lakers. Ellen Lauinger added seven digs, five kills, three blocks and two aces. Savanna Stout had five kills and three blocks, while Alli Pennington had a team-high 10 digs for the Lakers (16-15-3).



The meet will bring about a lot of good thing for them. Everything has fallen into place and that is good. - Richard E. Dover
