On the opening day of the tournament against Muskegon Community College, Courtney Griffith led Ancilla’s offense with twelve assists while Suzanne Grimm offered eight of her own. Amber Redinger and Jessica Moore added to the Charger offense by picking up eight kills each. Grimm was tops defensively, dishing out ten digs. Unfortunately for the Chargers, they could not match the Jayhawk’s offensive output and went down in three straight sets.
Day two saw Ancilla versus Jackson College. In their two previous matchups, the teams split victories, but on this occasion the Jets earned their second win against the Chargers in three sets. Just as the day before the duo of Griffith and Grimm combined for 100% of Ancilla’s assists, setting for twelve and thirteen respectively. Offensively, Redinger (11), Mariah Kinney (8), and Hayley Mavrick (7) put down 26 of the Chargers’ 30 total kills. Leading the defense with eleven digs each was Mavrick, Mieka Wagner, and Mackenzie White.
“The tournament was a bit of a disappointment. We definitely did not play our best, but this group of girls has been a great group to coach. Although we didn’t do as well as I had hoped, I have truly enjoyed this season,” reflected Ancilla coach Lana Singleton.
The Chargers final overall record was 15-20, which allowed them to finish the regular season tied for fifth place in the MCCAA Western Conference.
