Grand Rapids earns Postseason Berth

May 7, 2024.- The Grand Rapids Rise are postseason bound. With a guaranteed spot in the Pro Volleyball Federation playoffs awaiting the winner Sunday afternoon inside Van Andel Arena, the Rise overcame the San Diego Mojo for the first time this season.

Grand Rapids (11-12) prevented San Diego (10-11) from completing a four-match season series sweep with a 3-0 home victory by set scores of 25-23, 25-18, 25-16.

The Rise became the third team to clinch a postseason berth with the win, leaving the Mojo, Columbus Fury (8-13), and Vegas Thrill (8-14) to fight for the final spot with a week left in the regular season.

Less than 24 hours after Grand Rapids lost to the Mojo, the rematch on Sunday was a complete turnaround for the Rise. Grand Rapids hit .296 – its second-best attack percentage this year, with a season-low 11 attack errors.

Rise Match Notes

For the first time this season, the Rise didn’t give up an ace to their opponent.

Grand Rapids earned its third sweep this season, tied for second-most in the League with Omaha. Atlanta finished its regular season already with 10 sweeps in 24 matches.

After playing 13 out of their 14 players on Saturday, the Rise didn’t make any substitutions on Sunday. All seven players who started ended up playing the whole match. It’s the first time the Rise rotation went untouched during a match this season.
