The scores and results from Sept. 16's contests:


Volleyball: The Trojans opened O-K Black play with a three-set loss to Jenison. The Wildcats won 25-17, 25-17, 25-18. Setters Jenna VanderVelde and Jessie Paquin led the offense with a combined 19 assists while VanderVelde had a team-high 3 aces. 


Cross country: The Grand Haven varsity cross country team finished fifth at the O-K Red Jamboree at Rockford with 98 points. Hudsonville finished first with 45 points and Caledonia as a close second with 49. 

Grand Haven was led by Cole Rowden in 11th with a time of 17:12.9 and Carter Larned in 12th with 17:13.6.

"Carter ran a really great competitive race," head coach John Tarr said. "He was 15th at the start then put himself into 12th running very tough. And Cole did a great job leading the team despite a bad head cold. Both guys put themselves in contention for All-Conference honors this season with those finishes."

The scoring for the Bucs was rounded out by Jon Tysman going 17:31 in 23rd, Ben Pease in 25th with 17:41 and Nolan Clark with a PR of 17:45 in 27th. The varsity was rounded out with Logan Vining in 29th at 17:47 and Christian Colvin in 32nd with a PR of 17:49.

"As a team we were hoping for a little better finish, but today we showed a lot of improvement with 16 guys getting PRs."


Golf: The varsity golf team picked up a third-place finish at the O-K Blue jamboree in Allendale. Phoebe Saunders finished with a 42, while sophomore Kelsey Megley was next-lowest with a 50. Kate Galloway was third on the team with a 53.

Volleyball: The varsity team was defeated in three sets by Coopersville on Tuesday. Abbi Perkins led the team with 10 kills, while Kendra Kieft and Taylor Britton had 6 and 5 digs respectively. They host West Catholic next Tuesday.

The junior varsity lost as well, dropping two sets to the Broncos (25-21, 25-13). The JV team moved to 6-5 overall, splitting their first two conference matches. The freshman team lost in two sets as well.


Soccer: A trip to Orchard View was the second of back-to-back games for the Warriors, and a tough trip ended in a scoreless draw. Goalkeeper Jamison Goorman stopped a handful of attacks for the Warriors, while Brandon Fles was the nearest Warrior to a goal as a set-piece threat. WMC (6-1-3 overall, 2-0-2 conference) will play Covenant Christian on Thursday at home.
