OKBET RACING | St. Mary Volleyball Wins Again, Gaylord Equestrian Takes Third

Gaylord High School & St. Mary School

There are seven people that make up the Gaylord High School equestrian team for the year 2022. This number does not include the horses.

They just closed up their fall season with a good performance at the Regional Competition in Midland, where they finished in third place out of eight teams. The seven members of the team represent the freshman, sophomore, and junior classes at GHS.

The team defeated Petoskey over the course of three district meetings to emerge victorious and secure the Division B District Championship for themselves. As a result, they earned a spot in the Regional Championships.

At the Regional Competition, only the top two teams qualified to compete in the state championships. Because the Blue Devils team finished in third place, their chances of competing at the state level were significantly reduced.

Stacey Holzschu, the head coach of the team, said that “We have a youthful team with many riders being in their first year exhibiting or in their first year with a new horse.” “Considering how well they performed in the competition, it will be intriguing to see what they are capable of doing in the following year when they have gained more experience.”

Isabel Wingo, Ava Collins, and Taylor Owens are all juniors, while the other members of the squad are Jazlyn Wixon, who is a sophomore, Vera Kozlowski, Maryn Quick, and Avery Spiker, who are all freshmen.

St. Mary

St. Mary Volleyball

The St. Mary volleyball team has notched another victory, extending their unbeaten run.

The Snowbirds’ most recent defeat came on September 6, when they were defeated by their in-city rivals from Johannesburg-Lewiston in a match that was intensely contested throughout. Since then, the St. Mary’s team has been almost unbeatable, losing just two sets throughout their streak of seven consecutive triumphs.

Their most recent success came on Tuesday, when the Snowbirds swept another opponent from the Ski Valley conference. This time, they defeated Central Lake in straight sets (25-14, 25-20, 25-14), which gave them their seventh consecutive victory.

And once again, the St. Mary squad was led to victory by another strong performance from senior Ava Schultz, who finished the match with 18 kills, 12 digs, and two blocks.

Both Caroline Gilling and Emma Glasby had outstanding days in terms of their statistical output. Both players finished with six kills, with Gilling adding nine digs, two aces, and two more points than Glasby.

Other players that stood up were Macey Bebble (nine digs), Abby Moeggenburg, and Sydney Grusczynski, who each contributed 21 assists, seven digs, and three aces respectively (five digs).

The overall record for St. Mary’s now stands at 12-2, while the team’s conference record is at 5-1. Their subsequent encounter is slated to take place on Tuesday, October 11 at Inland Lakes.
