Logansport golf team edged by Culver Academy for first loss


“Our girls never gave up and when the pressure was on they really stepped it up to the next level,” DeFries said. “It was a defensive battle all night between the two teams and their liberos, but I think in the end our offense really stepped up and took over.”

Logan 3, N. Miami 1

The Berries moved to 2-1 with a 25-22, 25-11, 22-25, 25-12 win over North Miami.

Syd Bullard had 21 kills and 12 digs for the Berries. Sophomore Monika Ness posted 10 kills.

“She plays middle hitter on our back side rotation. We did a good job of getting quick ones with her,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “It was a good night for her.”

Katie Easter had 16 digs, Lindsey Cheney had 12, Bailey Kelley posted 10, Paulie Frye had seven and Kailey Vernon added six.

“Our back row played outstanding,” Jon Vernon said. “We had more digs tonight ... they did a great job. Katie [Easter] served really well, too.”

Nakeya Penny added eight kills and Lauren Pruitt had six. Kelley dished 32 assists and Hannah Jones added 12.

The Berries get a week off before they travel to Pioneer next week.

“It’ll be a good challenge for both of us. We’re both still trying to find our way a little bit,” Jon Vernon said. “We’ll have to be ready to play. We’re taking off time before Labor Day and coming in and practicing on Monday. Last year we took Labor Day off and we played Harrison and didn’t play extremely well that day. We’ll come in and practice on Monday and go out and play as hard as we can on Tuesday against Pioneer.”

The Kings lost on the road to Class 2A’s No. 2-ranked team, 25-14, 25-15, 25-18.

Trisha Hartley led the Kings with five kills and four blocks. Aubrey Young and Brooke Langley added three kills apiece. Kassi Zeck had 16 digs.
