Grand Rapids, MI: The 13-1 Cornerstone University Eagles showed why they have such a high early season ranking in NAIA II soundly defeating the Tigers; 25-8; 25-14; 25-4. In the earlier match the Tigers fell to cross town rival Kuyper College in 3 sets as well; 25-22; 25-23; 25-18.
“We are at a turning point in our season.” Coach Spooner said. “We are almost halfway through our schedule and have made whatever changes needed to be made. But they shouldn’t have affected our play and countenance on the court as much as it did against Kuyper College. Coach Mike Wiggers has done a great job with that program and they beat us. We need some practice time to regroup and learn how to respond to change and loss of players. I’m confident we will bounce back from this with a more challenged focus on the last half of our season.”
The Tigers travel to Chicago for the Archer Invitational Friday taking on 6th ranked Moody Bible.
