Either way, coach Krysta Kreyger’s East Detroit athletes put a clincher hold on at least a share of the MAC Bronze Division championship with Tuesday night’s three-game victory over Madison.

The Shamrocks dispatched Madison 25-10, 25-6, 25-9. The win moved East Detroit to 8-0 in the division with just two matches left. The team travels to New Haven Thursday, and to Fitzgerald Tuesday.

“We finished third last year, but we have everybody back,” said coach Kreyger. “Things are really clicking well. We are becoming more of a team. Victoria Grimes is having a great season. She’s a junior and this is her third year on the varsity. She is the heart of our team; she is reliable offensively, defensively and as a team leader. She is also a great student.”

Against Madison, Grimes finished with nine kills and five aces. BreeShauna Bester, a sophomore outside hitter, had seven aces and 13 service points. Paige Pierce wound up with six digs. Other key players for the Patriots include senior middle hitter Kiara Nelson and junior libero Brianne Hall.

“The kids have really bought into the system,” said Kreyger.

Something else that Patriots have bought into is the Armed Services Match scheduled for Monday against visiting Warren-Mott. All proceeds including admission, concessions and advertisements sold to local businesses published in the program will go to the USO. The junior varsity match begins at 5 p.m., with the varsity match at 6:30. Anyone wanting to support the Armed Services Match should call the East Detroit athletic department at 586.533.3275.
