Paulie Frye added three blocks and two aces. Hannah Jones had 16 assists. Monika Ness came up with six kills. Lindsey Cheney contributed with five digs, and Karlee Vernon had two aces.

“I thought the kids played very well against Winamac,” Logansport coach Jon Vernon said. “Maybe one of our best outings of the season. They did a lot of positive things out on the court. Ball movement was very good. Their effort was outstanding.”

[The girls] have been a little bit more focus then last week. We had homecoming, and we weren’t focused. This week the intensity level is up. It is really a good time of the year to hone in that and get ready for the tournament. We have a lot of potential, and the last couple of practices we have been very inspirational to me.”
