TC Christian Looks to End Postseason Title Drought

TRAVERSE CITY – With the start of the MHSAA volleyball postseason less than a month away, Traverse City Christian has its sights set on claiming its first district championship since 2010.

With a small roster, the Sabres have gotten off to a 17-3 start and were an honorable mention in the latest Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association Division 4 state rankings.

The Sabres have won five consecutive matches since dropping a pair at the Whitmore Lake Invitational back on Sept. 14.

Traverse City Christian has found success despite having only an eight-player roster with two subs.

“We can switch it up pretty easily,” Traverse City Christian sophomore Emma Mirabelli said. “We have a lot of people that can go in for whoever and go with it. Middles switch up a lot. Our right side hitters switch up a lot. We learned since we’re so small, we know how to do it all pretty much.”

“We kind of know where everybody’s at on the court, so if some person is not where they’re at, we fill in easily because we kind of know each other well,” added Traverse City Christian senior Abbey Brower.

The Sabres are back in action Thursday at McBain Northern Michigan Christian for a tri-match with NMC and Mason County Eastern.
