The Cleary University golf team poses with the national championship trophy after winning the USCAA national title on Tuesday. It’s the first national title in any sport for the Cougars.

LANSING Ultimately, the result was the same when the Fowlerville volleyball team took on Lansing Catholic on Wednesday.

But Gladiators coach Michelle Hardenbrook was pleased with her team’s play in a 25-13, 25-15, 25-23 loss to the Cougars.

“We hung with them the best we could, defensively,” she said. “But I’m proud of the girls. We played hard and didn’t give up.”

The best evidence, she said, was in the third game, when Lansing Catholic took a 23-17 lead before the Glads rallied.

“A lot of teams, down 2-0, would have packed it in,” she said. “My team worked hard to get back into that game.”

Paige Temple had 18 assists and distributed the ball evenly to the Glads hitters, all of whom finished with five kills on the night. Sara Domine had 15 digs for Fowlerville (15-16-3 overall, 4-4 CAAC White), while Jewlissa Aldred had 10 digs in her first game this season after being out with a broken hand.
