Prep Sports Roundup: Leland claims 5-game match over TCSF

LELAND — In a back-and-forth match, Leland outlasted Traverse City St. Francis to claim a five-game volleyball match Wednesday.

The Comets won 25-20, 13-25, 25-20, 16-25, 15-11 to get back to .500 at 6-6-3.

“The momentum shifted on every game,” Leland coach Laurie Glass said. “It was a game of passing and serving. When our passing went awry, so did our game.”

Leland was led by individual performances by Noa Yaakoby (11 kills, 15 digs), Felicia Whittaker (nine kills, two blocks), Maddie Trumbull (seven kills, two blocks), Heather Burns (four kills, 13 digs, four blocks), Caitlin McKee (two aces, 27 assists) and Miranda Harrison (11 digs).

“It was an excellent match,” Glass said. “I hope we could play them over and over and over. I think we’d go about .500, but it would be fantastic.”

St. Francis setter Laura Kirchofer left the match with an ankle injury in the fifth game and Leland up 12-9. Gladiators co-coach Heather Simpson said Kirchofer will have tests done on the ankle.

The Glads (10-4) were paced by Madeline Rysztak (15 kills, 24 digs), Megan Knudsen (six aces, seven kills) and Kirchofer (32 assists).

St. Francis goes to the Muskegon Western Michigan Christian Warrior Showdown on Saturday.


TC West 3

TC Central 0

Traverse City West won the first of two crosstown rivalry matchups with Traverse City Central, 25-16, 25-22, 25-13.

“West played really well and they’re just a better team than us,” Central coach Mike Kelly said.

Kelly cited sophomore libero Tara Ferguson as the Trojans’ top performer. No results for TC West were submitted.

Central (0-1 Big North Conference) hosts Cadillac on Monday.

Northport 3

Buckley 1

Northport earned a four-game victory over Buckley as the Wildcats won 25-20, 25-19, 17-25, 25-17.

For the day, Northport was led by Maeve Elflen (five kills, two digs), Kaelyn Tarsa (four aces, two kills), Autumn Huck (four digs, six kills, two aces), Anna Hagstrom (three digs, two kills), Mariah Kalchik (four blocks, two aces, four kills), Megan Popp (17 assists, four digs, three kills), Sarah Schaub (two digs, one kill) and Ashley Pino (three digs, four aces, four kills).
