  • Janesville too much for Wolverines

    The good news: East Mills got better as the match went on.

    “We finally got our bearings and settled down after that first set and started improving and by the third set, we played much better,” Blank said. “I think we had to get some nerves out. Janesville is just a very, very good team.”
