It’s been a long six days for the Carson City-Crystal volleyball team. The Eagles played in four different matches in that time, including a tournament on Saturday.
Carson City-Crystal’s football team put on a defensive show Saturday. The Eagles held the Burton Bendle Tigers to just eight rushing yards in a 34-0 shutout Saturday.
Friday will be the first time since 2007 that the Tri County Vikings and Central Montcalm Green Hornets get together for a football game. But unlike 2007, when the Vikings won 7-0, there’s more on the line in this game because both teams are in the same conference. This game counts in the Central State Activities Association Gold Division standings.
Montabella’s football team started out coach Shaun Balhorn’s second tenure as leader with a big win last week. The Mustangs knocked off Saugatuck by a 52-22 score. Balhorn said the team won at the line of scrimmage.
Central Montcalm’s football team hadn’t beat Morley Stanwood in the past five years. That all changed Thursday, as the Green Hornets had a 36-6 win over the Mohawks.
Central Montcalm’s volleyball team went 2-0-1 in the Daily News Invitational, and coach John Johnson was happy. After Tuesday’s four-game loss to Ithaca, he wasn’t.
Tri County’s soccer team has been scoring in bunches all season. The Vikings scored a bunch again Monday, mercying the Kent City Eagles in one half 8-0.
Belding’s volleyball team started out the season the same way they started last season. The Redskins won the opening tournament of the season, the Daily News Invitational at their own gym.
The weather that pushed through the state Tuesday afternoon had an effect on football practice for Carson City-Crystal. The JV and varsity teams were forced inside Tuesday afternoon because of the storms that came through. So the Eagles ran some drills inside.
Lakeview’s football team has already had their first practice of the season. It happened at midnight Monday morning. The Wildcats practiced for two hours, then took three hours off before picking back up again at 5 a.m.
