BENTON TOWNSHIP — Lake Michigan College’s volleyball season is shorter, its roster is smaller, communication is harder and the competition is very tough.

The Red Hawks don’t mind, though. They’re just happy to be playing, and Friday’s 25-20, 25-10, 25-9 loss to Glen Oaks didn’t dampen their enthusiasm.
