Rockford volleyball finishes perfect, again

The Rams celebrate their OK Red conference championship quickly before going to work in MHSAA district play this week at Rockford High School.

Two years; two undefeated seasons. The Rockford volleyball team completed their 2011 OK Red season as undefeated champions this past Saturday, Oct. 29 in Grand Haven, a perfect 11-0. The OK Red conference tournament is the official end of conference play prior to the MHSAA state tournament. The day was important as a tournament win would be worth as many points toward the OK Red title as the regular season records.

Rockford cruised through the initial rounds beating Muskegon, Hudsonville and East Kentwood. After a long afternoon wait while other teams battled to see who would face Rockford in the title match, the championship pitted rivals Rockford and East Kentwood, a share of the overall title on the line. Rockford already had secured their share based on the regular season and the Rams’ performance in the tournament on this day.

The Falcons came out in the first set of this best-of-three match intent on upsetting the number two state-ranked Rams and with hopes of getting a piece of the prize for themselves. East Kentwood won the first set 25-22 with a “nothing to lose and everything to win” style. The Rams, whose signature this season has been to “never back down and never blink” in the face of many teams challenging them this season, went to work and shut down East Kentwood’s pursuit of a title share. The Rams went on to win set two, 25-11, and 15-11 in the third and deciding set.

The Rams, 52-8 overall, are hosting the MHSAA district tournament this week at Rockford High School. Games are played on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with the district final match on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 11:00 a.m.
