Zach Grigg, The Mariner’s 4th Year Right Side had one of his best weekends since joining the Mariners 4 seasons ago. The Mariner’s right side attacker has been recently moved from the Left side to help out the Right Side and was outstanding the weekend helping the Mariners to go undefeated against the Avalanche of the College of the Rockies.

Zach put together 2 solid matches over the Thursday and Friday nights against the College of the Rockies Avalanche. He combined for 38 total offensive points and 22 digs and 2 blocks over the weekend. Friday nights match, Zach put together a very well rounded performance with 18 kills, 15 digs, 2 service aces and 2 blocks. On Saturday, Zach continued his excellent week 7 results with 13 kills, 7 digs, and 3 service aces.

The Mariners finished strong in the second half of the first semester finishing 5-1 in the last 6 matches after starting the season 1-5. Heading into the Christmas break the Mariners hope to use this time to get healthy and fit for the push to Provincials and Nationals
