LEROY &045; Coming off homecoming week and playing for the third time in five days, the Glenville-Emmons volleyball team got off to a slow start in Saturday’s LeRoy-Ostrander Invitational.

Once they got going, though, there was no stopping the Wolverines.

After falling to Elgin-Millville in the opening round of pool play, the Wolverines won four consecutive matches to claim the consolation crown.

&uot;The girls picked up the pace in the afternoon and played better,&uot; said Wolverines coach Craig Rayman. &uot;It was good for the kids to win the consolation championship.&uot;

The Wolverines lost the opener 15-4, 15-11. They were also sluggish in the second round, splitting a pair of games with Lanesboro, but they took the tiebreaker. G-E swept Grand Meadow 15-6, 15-2 in their final pool-play match.

&uot;Unfortunately, the loss to Elgin-Millville put us in the consolation bracket,&uot; said Rayman.

There, the Wolverines cruised, drilling Southland 15-3, 15-2 and downing the host team 15-11, 15-2.
