Traverse City Record-Eagle

---- — LELAND — Leland won both its matches in its “Dig Abby” triangular home volleyball match Thursday.

The Comets downed Charlevoix in three games and Northport in two during the night similar to many teams’ “Dig Pink” games that benefit breast cancer awareness.

“It was quite the community support,” Comets coach Laurie Glass said. “It was our biggest crowd of the year.”

Leland topped Charlevoix 23-25, 25-23, 16-14 — rallying from down eight to win the second game — and downed Northport 25-7, 25-23.
