ROSCOMMON – The Gladwin freshmen volleyball team played in two tri-meets recently, traveling to Clare Sept. 24, and to Roscommon Monday. At Clare, Gladwin played McBain first. Rebeka Greenwood led the G’s by serving 13 points for a 25-10 win. Gladwin came out strong in the second game and with eight serves from both Allyson Conley and Greenwood, and clinched a 25-18 victory. Playing the Clare Pioneers next, it was a team effort with Kelsee Thurlow and Conley helping keep their team positive. The G’s beat Clare 25-17. In the second game Kayla Greaves and Hannah Blonde served seven and eight points each for a 25-20 win. Monday the G’s travelled to Roscommon for another tri-meet. Allie Greer found her serve again and served eight points against Roscommon to open. Tori Duke helped with seven points serving. Mallerie Bittner served five points, in the 25-12 victory. The G’s came out ahead for most of the second game, but let the Bucks slip ahead at 16 points. Thanks to strong efforts by Missy Bowen, Allie Greer, Kelsee Thurlow and Sam Donovan, the G’s stayed in the game but ended up losing 25-23 despite their strong effort. Gladwin came out to an early 5-point lead in the third set with the Bucks, and never lost control of the game. The G’s won 15-12. For their last match, Gladwin played a strong Sanford-Meridian team; coming out flat and unable to gain any momentum. Allie Greer and Rebeka Greenwood both had two nice kills set up by Bittner and Thurlow, but still lost 25-9. Gladwin came out stronger the second game and was more competitive, but still lost 25-14. Emily Reichard, Kelsee Thurlow, Tori Duke and Mallerie Bittner all played well defensively, according to freshman coach Anthony Wetmore. The freshman travel to Sanford to face the Meridian Mustangs tonight, and host Ogemaw Heights tonight. Both start at 6 p.m.
