Grant Continues Historic Season

GRANT – Despite winning six consecutive district championships, the ninth-ranked Grant volleyball program had been unable to get past the regional round.

That all changed last week with the Tigers claiming the school’s first regional title via a straight set sweep of Holland Christian.

Grant will now face No. 5 Buchanan Tuesday in a Class B quarterfinal at Hudsonville Unity Christian.

With all the success Grant has had over the last six years, the Tigers have no plans to change their approach as the postseason progresses, though.

"We focus on the basics, instead of just being insanely amazing,” Grant senior Laura Bouwkamp said. “We just try to do the best that we can."

"We’re going to go in and play our game, and just work really hard and lift each other up, and I’m sure that it will work out exactly how it’s supposed to,” added Grant senior Sierra Schuitema.

Tuesday’s will take on either No. 3 North Branch or St. Claire Shores South Lake at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
