HOLTON — A lot of Shelby Tigers, past and present, had celebrating to do after their team defeated Hesperia Thursday night in the district finals, 25-9, 21-25, 25-10, 25-13, none more so than the classes of 2021 and 2022.
MUSKEGON — Pentwater’s volleyball team was able to keep pace with Muskegon Catholic early in each game of their MHSAA Division 4 district championship match Thursday, but the host Crusaders pulled away late to earn the win, 15-25, 13-25, 11-25.
HOLTON — Back with its regular lineup, Shelby enjoyed one of its most dominant performances of the season Wednesday night, dispatching rival Hart 25-11, 25-9, 25-10.
