Western Michigan Christian’s top-ranked volleyball team is on an unprecedented run of 21 straight match victories.
No. 21 was historic – it sends the Warriors to the state semifinals for the first time ever.
Western Michigan Christian remained red-hot with a three-game sweep of Watervliet in a Division 3 state quarterfinal Tuesday night at Hamilton, 25-17, 25-23, 26-24.
The Warriors (49-5) advance to Friday’s noon state semifinal at Battle Creek’s Kellogg Arena, where they will face Reese (34-5-1), which defeated Royal Oak Shrine Catholic three games to one in the quarterfinals.
Senior Kyla Wiersema paced Western Michigan Christian with 24 kills, 18 digs and two blocks, while junior Kendal Young totaled 42 assists and 21 digs. Senior Haley Breuker notched 21 digs, while senior Maddie Wiersema had eight kills, nine digs and three blocks. Senior Libby Mast added five blocks.
Tuesday marked WMC’s second quarterfinal appearance in program history. In 2019, the Warriors were swept by Schoolcraft in the quarterfinals.
Watervliet closes the season with a 31-10 record.
