Alcona sends off seniors with win over Hillman

Alcona takes the top Tiger role taking down Hillman 3-1. (October 17, 2018)


ALCONA — The Alcona Tigers played their last home game of the 2018 season on Tuesday night. This was also the final home game for seniors Abby Franklin, Raegen Eller, Hailee Gordy, Cassady Clemens, and McKayla LaFave.

Alcona played an equally talented Hillman Tigers team in their home finale. The orange and black boast tag team Emilee Noffze and Brooke Jones up front and have solid defense as well.

Gordy shined on offense for the blue and gold with 11 kills. Franklin added 3 aces and Eller contributed 12 digs. Junior Brooke Pagels helped slow Hillman’s offense with 6 blocks.

Rose Schopfer had the play of the year. Hillman’s Anna Calendar hit a monster shot that ricocheted off Schopfer’s head and landed in bounds for an Alcona point.
