Volleyball action on the radio schedule

With Twins baseball done for the year and Wild and Timberwolves just getting started, there’s room for some regular season volleyball action on the KOZY airwaves. Tuesday night it’s Grand Rapids hosting Virginia in IRC action. Parents night at the Grand Rapids gym and it should be a great time. Pre-game on KOZY and right around 6:45.

Thursday good to Grand Rapids HS Sports

Grand Rapids with a clean sweep Thursday in High School Sports. Soccer a 2-1 win over Proctor.
It was a fairly even scoreless 1st half. The Thunderhawks scored 9 minutes into the 2nd half when John Seelye banged in a crossing pass from Matt Damiani with Logan Woock also getting an assist.  The Thunderhawks retained the lead when a penalty kick goal was disallowed because the kicker got his own rebound off the goalpost and knocked it in.  The rails would eventually tie it up with 12 minutes remaining on a long free kick pass from Matt Lillie to Cody Fernandez.  With just under 7 minutes left in regulation, the Rapids boys were putting on the pressure when the Rails were called with a penalty inside the box resulting in a Penalty Kick and Brett Rodenberg found the back of the net for the game-winner.  The GR record improved to 5-8 while the rails are now 5-5-2.  
The Thunderhawks travel to Moorhead on Saturday in a non conference match-up with the Spuds.

GRG Tennis a 6-1 win over Hibbing, Grand Rapids Swimming a 120-65 win over Mesabi East.

Grand Rapids Volleyball staying undefeated with a 3-0 win over International Falls – 25-12, 25-17,25-7.
