NEW LOTHRUP–The Rogers City volleyball team advanced to the gold bracket on Wednesday during a tournament in New Lothrup before losing its bracket play opener.

Seeded fifth in bracket play, the Hurons lost to Birch Run 19-25 and 14-25.

In pool play, the Hurons defeated Durand (25-23, 25-17) and Bendle (25-15, 25-14) and split with New Lothrup (20-25, 25-18).
