The Lady Red Hawks hosted Kalamazoo Valley Community College and fell in four sets.
In the first set, the women started off slow allowing eight points right out of the gate. They began to find their rhythm but could not cut the deficit losing 14-25. The Lady Red Hawks come out on fire in the second set defeating the Lady Cougars 25-22. The third set was more like the first as the women had difficulties finding their tempo and fell 15-25. In the final set, it looked bleak for Lake Michigan but they were able to close the gap. Kalamazoo Valley did not give up and the Lady Red Hawks fell 22-25.
Katie Gates (SO/Stevensville, MI) led the women in serves scoring twelve points and also had several assists. Taylor Strauss (SO/Buchanan, MI) led the women defensively, while Kenzie Pulliam (FR/Niles, MI) and Brianna Conklin (FR/Paw Paw, MI) were strong on the net.
The women will travel to Lansing Community College on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at 6:30 pm.
