The intimidation factor was on full tilt for Central Montcalm’s volleyball team in its match against Lakeview. The event took place Thursday afternoon in front of the school’s entire student body. Facing a boisterous crowd that filled the stands, the Green Hornets were able to overcome the intimidation to sneak away with a two-game sweep, winning 25-23 in each game.
Lakeview soccer team’s midfield defense disrupted the offensive flow of Reed City all game in a decisive 9-1 divisional victory Monday.
The Lakeview Wildcats (6-2 overall) took control of the game quickly against their Central State Activities Association opponent, almost scoring on a behind-the-back kick by junior Dan Steele four minutes into the game. The Wildcats would get on the board two minutes later with junior Nick Ruvalcaba’s goal with 34:58 remaining in the first half.
LAKEVIEW — Last year, Lakeview didn’t make it to bracket play at its own volleyball invitational. That changed this time around. The Wildcats won its Lakeview Invitational Saturday, beating Big Rapids in three games, 25- 22, 23- 25, 15-7 in the final to take the tournament. The win was a big one, according to coach [...]
Lakeview’s football team knew they had a tough game to play when they faced Morley Stanwood Friday night.
Tough it was. The two teams went into overtime before the Mohawks beat the Wildcats 13-10 on a broken play that turned into a touchdown.
Losing is never fun, but for Ashley Martz’s Lakeview Wildcats volleyball team, its close loss to the Hesperia Panthers in a five-game series Wednesday was a needed learning lesson.
In Martz’s first year as coach last year, winning was problematic, so much so the Wildcats went winless last year. This year, however, Martz is seeing major improvement and the ever-so-important wins. The loss to Hesperia, however, may prove more valuable than the win.
The Wildcats came out hot in the first game, leading the whole way to a 25-20 win and looking like the favorite between the two teams. However, the Panthers took the next two matches, 25-18 and 25-16.
The heat index was 102 degrees when Belding and Lakeview met Sparta and Grand Rapids West Catholic in a cross country meet Wednesday.
That was the reason the meet was shortened from 5,000 meters (3.1 miles) to 3,200 meters (two miles).
It’s early in the volleyball season, but Lakeview’s volleyball team has a big match Wednesday.
The Wildcats will host Morley Stanwood at Cook Gym Wednesday. The Mohawks have won a pair of state championships in Class C.
Lakeview and Tri County have had two close games in their previous two matchups.
Thursday night’s matchup wasn’t as close.
The Wildcats ran all over the Vikings in winning 37-6 at Kos Field in the season-opener for both teams.
Central Montcalm’s volleyball team found a good way to start its season Saturday. The Green Hornets won the Daily News Volleyball Tournament, beating the host Belding Redskins in three games in the championship game to win.
Here it’s my first week as Daily News sports editor, and I’m already playing from behind.
Having accepted the new position on Monday, transitioning from features editor and filling the vacancy left by my dear friend and longtime and much-respected Sports Editor Bruce Bentley, I’ve had to “hit the line hard” and catch up with teams, local athletic directors and coaches as high school fall sports season is already upon us.
