Knights defeat Berries in 4 games in volleyball

Logan drops senior night match against No. 8-ranked LCC.

Lafayette Central Catholic put a damper on Logansport’s senior night festivities with a win over four games over the Berries on Wednesday.

The Class A No. 8 Knights won 25-19, 12-25, 25-22. 25-23.

It was a very close match throughout other than the second game in which the Berries (16-12) dominated.

In fact the fourth set could have gone either way. The Berries tied it at 23-all after a thrilling marathon point, but the Knights ended the match on back-to-back kills by Emily Burks and Emily Denhart.

“I thought tonight we played as probably we’ve played all year long. We played well,” LHS coach Jon Vernon said. “Central Catholic’s a good team. Hat’s off to them. They beat Harrison last night and we’re right with these guys. I thought especially the last 10 points of this last match I thought we played extremely well and really hard.”

Nakeya Penny led the Berries with 14 kills and three blocks. Syd Bullard had 12 kills and 13 digs.

Lindsey Cheney collected 22 digs at libero for a solid showing on senior night. Senior Hannah Jones dished 26 assists.

Katie Easter added 11 assists and Karlee Vernon served two aces.

The Berries have been winning right around 25 matches per season in recent years but likely won’t get there this year with just three matches left in the regular season. But they can still reach their ultimate goal which is to win their first sectional title since class sports were enacted.

While they celebrated senior night on their home floor Wednesday, they still have the county tourney at home this weekend and Sectional 7 at the Berry Bowl next week.

“One thing we’ve got to think about is our schedule is a lot tougher than it has been in the last few years. We’ve been playing a lot better teams and I purposely did that to try to make sure by the time we got to sectional that we were ready. And I think you’re starting to see it pay off here a little bit because of the effort we put on the floor tonight against a good Central Catholic team,” Jon Vernon said.
