Mallory Zorn shot an 86 to lead Peru and earn All-MIC honors.
The highlight of the day was one of the highlights of the program’s history for Pioneer volleyball.
The Panthers defeated Class 4A powerhouse Harrison 14-25, 25-16, 21-19 in the semifinal.
“We were on cloud nine,” Pioneer coach Rod Nies said. “The Harrison match was probably one of the biggest wins in Pioneer history. Our fans were going nuts. We were too.”
The Panthers opened the day with wins over Clinton Central (25-22, 25-18) and Lowell (25-22, 22-25, 15-13).
Nies said the Panthers had to wait about three hours to play the title match against Andrean. He added a slow start hurt them in a 25-16, 25-19 loss.
Sarah Dorris had 35 kills, 28 digs and six aces on the day for the Panthers (9-4). Hannah Tevis added 20 kills and 12 blocks.
Riley Morris dished 38 assists to go with four aces, and Shelby Roller had 33 assists.
Megan Smith collected 23 digs. Kayte Miller had 11 digs, seven kills and two aces. Lyndsey Stewart had eight kills, Madison Kiser had eight kills and four blocks and Kelsey Hill added three aces.
“Dorris played like a beast. Tevis played well; she’s nursing a sore knee,” Nies said. “Our setters made better decisions delivering the ball. Even when we were out of system they would come around and set up our hitters for good swings on the ball. ... Megan Smith is playing like a brick wall back there. Kayte Miller is playing better too.
“All of the girls played very well. I think I’ve found the rotation I want to stick with if possible.”
Logansport went 1-2 on the day.
The Berries had losses to Zionsville (25-16, 25-13) and West Lafayette (24-26, 25-18, 15-11) surrounding a win over Cardinal Ritter (25-23, 25-20).
