It wasn’t their prettiest game but they found a way to win and that’s all that matters. The varsity volleyball team beat Gladwin 3-1 on Tuesday to advance to Thursday’s regional final game.
Gladwin came ready to play in the first game, stunning the Vikings and their fans with a 25-16 win. Cadillac fought back in the next three games, though nothing came easy, pulling out 25-21, 25-23, and 25-18 wins to advance.
Brooke Kochanny came up huge for the Vikings, pacing Cadillac with 23 kills, two blocks, two aces and two digs while Macy Brown had 15 kills, 12 digs, 10 assists and a block. Maggie Neiss added four kills, five digs, two aces and a block.
The Vikings will play Thursday at Gaylord High School against Kingsley. The game will start at 7:00 p.m. — the winner will play in the state quarterfinal game next Tuesday at Central Montcalm.
