The Rangers were able to win in 3 games; winning the first 25-19, losing the second 25-10, and winning the third and final game 15-10. In match two against Lakewood, unfortunately, the team was not able to win any games against them, losing 25-12 and 25-7.
The third and hardest match of the day was against Rockford, the number 1 ranked class A team in the state.

Portage Central was the last match of the day where they, likewise to Rockford, they lost in two. While the first game was close at 25-23, the second was a much bigger scoring margin at 25-9.
