PREP ROUNDUP: Hurons rally to sweep Vikings at home

ROGERS CITY–Some early struggles paved the way for refocused efforts and a sweep for the Rogers City volleyball team.

The Hurons trailed 18-6 in the third set against Posen on Tuesday, but rallied back behind the strong serving of Jeffra Dittmar to top the Vikings 28-26.

Rogers City won the first two sets 25-13 and 25-22.

Dittmar finished with seven aces and two kills on the night, but it was her strong serving in the final set that reenergized the Hurons. Dittmar served 10 points in a row, giving Rogers City enough momentum to overtake the Vikings.

“We pulled through in the third set and it was great to a have a 3-0 victory, a league win,” Rogers City coach Erin Brege said. “The ability was there, but not the (right mentality) and Jeffra had a string of aces that brought us back.”

Makenna Fessler had nine kills, five digs and three aces for the Hurons and Kristin Brege had 21 assists and three aces. Kyrsten Altman and Brooke Saile each had three kills and two aces.
