The Grand Rapids Community College volleyball team faced a tough opponent Tuesday night, edging the Jackson College Jets 3-2.

The Raiders took the first set 25-21, and the match was a roller coaster after that.

The Jets would win the second set 25-23, but the Raiders would come back to win the third set 25-15. Jackson won the fourth set 25-20, forcing the game into a fifth and final set.

The Raiders didn’t give up, and came up with the set and match victory, increasing their winning streak to 12.

“Some kids were getting frustrated, some kids were getting down on themselves, but the resiliency that they’ve shown to go on this 12-game win streak, I think, kind of was a symbol of the resiliency it took to kind of win this match,” Head coach Chip Will said.

“The kids really worked through their frustration. I really had them focus on finding a way to be a great teammate, to other kids [on the team] to kind of get maybe them own selves out of a funk.”

GRCC hosts Muskegon Community College 5:30 p.m. today.
