By Journal Sports Staff

SAULT STE. MARIE — The Marquette girls volleyball team had a good afternoon Saturday as it made it to the finals at the Sault Ste. Marie Invitational.

The Redettes bounced back from an earlier loss to the Soo by taking down the host Blue Devils in the semifinals in three sets, but fell to Petoskey in two in the championship.

“The day went really well,” Marquette head coach Mike Morgan said. “We struggled a little against Petoskey, but every set, we got better. We played really well against the Soo in the semifinals, so it was definitely a good productive day for us.”

During the semis, Marquette lost the first set to the Blue Devils , but won the second one and overcame an 11-7 deficit in the third to win 17-15.
