Kings top Comets in 4 sets

Logan falls at Harrison, Winamac loses 5-setter

Lewis Cass’ volleyball team won at Caston in four games Tuesday night, 19-25, 25-21, 25-21, 25-18.

Maddy Eurit had 19 kills and five aces to lead the Kings (3-7). Gabi Hartley dished 38 assists, and Emily Robertson collected 27 digs.

“We had some successes [Tuesday], but we have to reduce our unforced errors,” Cass coach Gretchen Crum said. “We go to Kokomo and we were able to sneak by them last year. They’ll be gunning for us. We have to reduce our errors.”

Haley Hoover had 12 digs and five aces for the Comets (2-8). MicKayla Rans posted nine blocks, seven digs and three aces. Sarah Holt had six kills. Katelyn Miller contributed eight assists and four blocks, and Haley Small set up seven assists.

The Cass coach thought her squad’s serving might have been the difference.

“We pulled them out of what they usually try to do. They didn’t get the swings they wanted,” she said.

The Berries took the first set but were unable to keep the momentum going in a 17-25, 25-15, 25-23, 25-21 loss in West Lafayette.

“We came out and played well the first game,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “We were down by six or seven and made a run. Katie Easter served several points in a row and Lindsey Cheney served several points in a row and we got back into it.

“In game two they got us out of system running all over the place. They played better than us in game two. Game three could have gone either way. The kids played hard. The last one also could have gone either way. It was a case where they did a good job of getting us out of system.”

Kiley Victor had nine kills and 12 digs for the Berries (6-3), and Alaina Page had nine kills and four blocks. Syd Bullard added eight kills.
