Zeeland East High School
Rockford High School
The Chix faced Rockford tonight in the Regional semi-finals. It was a tough, competitive match, but the Chix fell short, losing in 3 with scores of 21-25, 14-25, 19-25. The team did not back down, and kept fighting every step of the way.
This ends the Chix season with a 26-25-1 record.
Volleyball wise, they finished tied for 2nd in the OK-Green Conference, were ZE Tournament Runner-Ups, and WON a District Championship [first time in over 14 years!], all things to be VERY proud of.
But most importantly throughout the past 4 months, the Chix molded into a team that was more than just wins and loses, this group of girls became a family and they all played a special, unique roll in the efforts to our success. We will be graduating seven seniors; Morgan VandenBosch, Audrey Kazda, Allison Sterken, Delani Nienhuis, Tayte Barense, Kami Insley and Abby Dannenberg. THANK YOU seniors for ALL that you’ve done for us and the ZEVB program. You have left a mark on it, and we are forever grateful for your leadership and for being role models both on and on the court. This team will be remembered for the way they fought hard through the good and tough times, but also for their passion for the game and for one another.
