Rams volleyball takes down Portage Central, tops West Ottawa

Monday night, Sept. 13, the Rockford High School gymnasium featured two of Michigan’s top Class A volleyball programs in the state when the visiting Portage Central Mustangs took on the Rockford Rams.

Rockford’s outside hitter Murphy Huyer (#4) looks to place a kill over two Portage Central blockers.

The Rams got hot early and never cooled off as they won this best-of-five match in three straight sets, 25-18, 25-20 and 25-18. The Rams showed strength in all areas of their game and featured skilful play at all positions.

The Rockford topped OK Red conference opponent West Ottawa in three straight sets at Rockford High School last Thursday night, Sept. 16. The best-three-of-five match was won by the Lady Rams, 25-17, 25-17 and 25-18. The Rockford team moved to 2-0 in the conference and 23-4 overall on Thursday. They continued their strong team play, excelling in all facets of their game as they prepare for the tough OK Red conference play ahead.

In continued action at Rockford High School, the host Rams finished runner-up to Novi in a six-team tournament on Saturday, Sept. 18. The Rams finished the day 5-1 to up their overall season record to 27-5; 2-0 in OK Red action.

The Rams traveled to Muskegon on Monday, Sept. 20, and then make a trip to Portage Central Saturday, Sept. 25, for additional tournament action.
