Berries win local volley title

Logansport’s volleyball team won the Cass County Tournament Saturday night at Lewis Cass.

The Berries opened the night by avenging an earlier loss to Class A No. 7 Pioneer with a 26-24, 13-25, 15-8 win.

The Berries (23-6) overcame a 23-20 deficit to win game one and then overcame a lopsided setback in game two against the Panthers (22-9).

“Our seniors stepped up and said ‘that’s not going to happen, we’re going to win the third game,’” Logan coach Jon Vernon said.

Kiley Victor had 14 kills and Syd Bullard added 10 in the win. Alaina Page posted nine kills, 15 assists and two blocks. Lindsey Cheney had 10 digs, Paulie Frye had three blocks, Katie Easter had two aces and Bailey Kelley added 13 assists.

“I was proud of the kids’ perseverance. I think the fifth game against Huntington North Thursday helped us out,” Vernon said.

Logan defeated Cass 25-9, 25-20 in the title match. Page had eight kills and seven assists. Kailey Vernon added six digs, and Katrina Neuendorf had two aces.

Logan hosts Knox Monday before facing Kokomo (7-19) at the Class 4A McCutcheon Sectional at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. The Berries defeated the Wildkats 25-23, 25-12, 25-15 on Sept. 27.

“They’ve got a decent back row. Kokomo is not going to lay down. They’re going to be ready to play,” Jon Vernon said.

Logan and Harrison enter as the co-favorites. The two squads could meet for the sectional title next Saturday night. Harrison defeated Logan 17-25, 25-15, 25-23, 25-21 on Sept. 4.

The Panthers were led by Cassidy Corn’s 16 kills, six blocks and five aces on the day. Lindsey Miller dished 38 assists, and Kayte Miller collected 30 digs. Gabby Dunlap and Sarah Dorris had nine kills apiece, and Dorris added 25 digs.

Pioneer coach Rod Nies talked about the match against Logan.

“We had ’em. It was almost a reverse of what we did to them at their place. They had us on the ropes and let us slip through, and this time we had them on the ropes and let them slip through,” he said.

“We were up 23-20 in the first game and they outscored us 6-1 to take the first set. We played really well the first game, both groups played well, and it was back and forth. They took a timeout and obviously regrouped.

“We had ’em beat. We thumped them pretty good the second game. We even played well in the first part of the third set. We were up and then lost focus. Our serve receive was not very good the third set and they got us.”

Pioneer defeated Caston 25-9, 25-10 in the consolation. The two squads will meet again at 12:30 p.m. next Saturday at the Pioneer Sectional.

Nies thinks North White (21-10) is the biggest threat to his squad’s sectional title.

“It’ll more than likely come down to us and North White,” he said. “North White has got a couple girls who play club in Lafayette. We played them earlier in the season and they’re the type of team that digs everything and hits it back over and hopes you make hitting errors. We have to stay focused an be ready to play. I wouldn’t count out Tri-County either.”

Cass defeated Caston 25-7, 25-11 in a semifinal Saturday. Trish Hartley was 7-for-7 in attacks for the Kings (8-20). Jenna Lewis had three kills and seven digs. Katie Leach had eight aces, and Emily Robertson added eight digs.

Against Logan, Robertson had 11 digs and Claire Crum added nine digs and two aces. Hartley added two blocks.

Cass will face No. 7 Southwood at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Class 2A Southwood Regional.

“Playing Logansport is like playing Southwood. We didn’t embarrass ourselves,” Cass coach Gretchen Crum said. “We had goals in mind and we worked on those. It’s a good game for us to have to get ready to play Southwood.”
