On Saturday, Sept. 25, the Rams traveled to Portage Central High School to compete in a tournament featuring the top-ranked volleyball programs in the state in both Class A and B. Rockford finished pool play with wins over Delton-Kellogg and Plainwell. In power pool play, Rockford lost to number-one-ranked Marian three games, in a best-of-three match, and then made a stand with a convincing win over number-four-ranked Portage Central in two straight wins. The Rams—seeded number two overall in tournament bracket play—then lost in the quarterfinals to conference opponent East Kentwood in two straight sets.

The Rams look to avenge their loss to East Kentwood this Thursday night, Sept. 30, when the Falcons visit Rockford in an OK Red conference showdown. This match will feature two undefeated teams in conference play and promises to be an exciting contest. If you enjoy exciting volleyball played at a high level, come cheer on the Rams Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at Rockford High School.
