Irish volleyball team finishes regular season with win

 

Coming off an important and exciting win the previous Tuesday where the Irish won the title of Central Minnesota Conference Champions, the team carried their momentum into their Oct. 20 game at home. Maple Lake faced the Zimmerman Thunder and once again came out on top.
In the first set, the Irish looked prepared. They came out with strong serves and really performed well at the net. The Thunder had weak passing and had difficulty playing the ball back. Maple Lake continued their strength through game one and beat Zimmerman 25-22.
The Irish only improved after game one. In game two the team really came together. With great effort and communication, the Irish played the ball back at full force and made the Thunder fight for every point they earned. Maple Lake had an aggressive game two, Zimmerman failed to earn enough points and the Irish won 25-12.

Irish girls stay perfect in conference


The Irish girls celebrate during their win over Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa on Thursday.

 

A crowd of excited fans showed up to watch the Irish continue their winning season as Maple Lake played the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguars on Thursday, Oct. 3.
Going into the game, Maple Lake’s record in the conference was 4-0. One of the team’s goals this season was to win the conference title and winning the game on Thursday would only make them closer to achieving that goal. They came out on the court ready to play hard and work for a win.
Game one the Irish played well fundamentally but lacked the intensity needed to consistently score. Though they lost the first set 25-16, Maple Lake made some great plays towards the end making great gains and putting momentum on their side to start game two.
