Manistique just keeps rolling on volleyball court, beating Iron Mountain in 3 sets

IRON MOUNTAIN — Manistique continued its winning ways Monday, sweeping to a three-set victory in a high school volleyball match at Iron Mountain, 25-12, 25-20, 25-13.

“We played pretty strong tonight,” Emeralds coach Amy Nixon said. “We put up a big front at the net as far as blocking goes, which made it difficult for them to get any offense going.

“We put a lot of pressure on them with our offense and didn’t give them the chance to attack much.”

Lenna Smith led Manistique (17-1-2) with 14 kills and 10 digs, while Emilee McDaniel chipped in with eight kills, three blocks and three aces.

Erin LaBar had 28 assists, Madison Zellar six digs and Brooke Richey three service aces.

“Offensively, we really spread it out and we were able to get several girls the ball to attack, which makes it difficult for defenses because they can’t just key on one hitter,” Nixon said.

The Emeralds, who also won the JV contest in three sets, host Ishpeming at 7 p.m. today.
