Berries sweep Kats

Logansport scores in bunches to oust Kokomo in 3 games

When it needed to be, Logansport’s volleyball team was too much for Kokomo in a sectional match on Thursday night.

The Berries utilized a series of devastating runs to put away the Wildkats in three games, 25-22, 25-16, 25-19, in a first-round match of the Class 4A Logansport Sectional.

“The kids were really excited to play tonight. I think it kind of got the best of us a little bit at the beginning, we were a little too jacked up,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “But I thought they did a good job of coming back. We came back that first match and the kids played hard. We did make some big runs tonight and we’re going to need to do that Saturday against McCutcheon.”

The Berries (19-13) will face McCutcheon (12-18) at 11 a.m. Saturday in a semifinal match. The Wildkats finish 13-20.

The theme of the match was the big runs the Berries were able to go on.

The Kats jumped out to an 18-12 lead in the first set before the Berries closed it out with a 13-4 run. Sydney Bullard had three kills and two aces during the key run of the match. Monika Ness had a kill and a block. Lauren Pruitt had a big kill and Karlee Vernon had a tip kill. Katie Easter had a great save that led to one of Bullard’s booming kills. Paulie Frye ended the set with a exclamation kill.

The second set had a similar finish with Logan going on an 11-3 burst to break open a 14-13 score. Frye had three straight aces during the run. Bullard had four kills and Nakeya Penny added a kill. Ness ended it with a block.

The Kats led 7-1 in the third set but a 15-3 run gave the Berries a 16-10 lead and they were able to hold on from there. Once again Bullard, who entered the match sixth in the state in Class 4A in kills, keyed the run with four kills. Penny pummeled the ball for a kill. Ness also knocked on wood with a kill. Easter had two aces and Lindsey Cheney added one.
