Lapeer volleyball team wins state title


Dear Editor,

In just their first year of existence, the Lapeer Athletic Club U-14 volleyball team won the Level 4 Michigan Juniors Volleyball Association State Tournament.

The tournament was held at various venues in the Grand Rapids area May 31 and June 1. They won six matches, lost two, taking 14 games and losing only six during the tournament. Once the team got into the championship bracket, they never looked back, winning all three matches and six games and defeating their opponents by an average of nine points per game. The A's defeated teams from Howell, Grand Blanc, and Macomb Township in the finals to win it all.

The team is comprised of incoming 8th and 9th graders from the Lapeer area. Members are: Marne Fettig, Hannah Gauthier, Madison Kobylik, Brittany Morrell, Kayla Morrell, Alexis Nichols, Meaghan Saelens, Justice Schihl, Lauren Tillery, and Shelby Wagner. The team is coached by Robin Wagner and Emily Schihl. Although the team had rostered as many as 11 players during the season, only 7 were able to attend the state tournament, making their accomplishment even more difficult.

The Lapeer Athletic Club was founded just this year to provide travel sports opportunities for local youth athletes. The club is looking to expand its AAU Volleyball program in the winter of 2009 by adding teams and coaches. The club is looking for new coaches prior to tryouts in January 2009. We will also be looking for additional players at the U-12, 14, 15, and 17 levels. If you are an experienced volleyball player or coach and want to take your game to the next level, please contact Neal Kobylik at 810-252-9550 or email at nealkobylik@hotmail.com
