Logansport golf team edged by Culver Academy for first loss


“Sporadic serve receive and hitting errors cost us points in every set,” Cass coach Gretchen Crum said. “Not recognizing hitter tendencies hurt in set two. We hung our heads at a point which added to our difficulty with their heavy hitters. We hung around in sets two and three and then made errors which gave Southwood the wins. We’ll be back in the gym tomorrow to work on ways to score.”

The Kings have five home matches coming up, starting with Oak Hill on Thursday.

Clinton C. 3, Carroll 0

The Cougars lost 25-23, 25-11, 25-19 at home.

Elizabeth Eurit and Libby Eller had 10 digs apiece for Carroll.

“We had a much better effort Tuesday against a good Central team,” Carroll coach Denny Crum said.

S. Newton 3, W. Central 2

South Newton rallied for a 25-27, 24-26, 25-15, 27-25, 15-10 win over West Central (4-3, 0-1 MWC).

Alivia Kruger had 11 kills and six digs for the Trojans. Autumn Wireman collected 24 assists and four aces, and Ashton Barkho had 17 digs.

Peru 3, Caston 0

The Comets were defeated on the road Monday night, 25-13, 25-16, 25-16.

Haley Hoover led Caston with seven digs. Mickayla Rans had three aces and six kills. Adrienne Fry and Haley Hoover both had four kills a piece while Haley Small and Madison Martin added five assists and Jacqueline Rans had three blocks.

“It was a rough night, especially since we were coming right off the weekend,” Caston coach Taylor McFarland said. “A lot of the girls weren’t there mentally — we weren’t playing smart volleyball like we know we can. We’re going to practice hard this week and gear up for Saturday’s tournaments.”

Caston competes at the Tri-County Invitational on Saturday.

W. Lafayette 5, Logan 0

“West Lafayette just outclassed us across the board. They’re a very good team,” LHS coach Mike Montgomery said. “Clements and Overway battled but came up short.”

The Berries host Carroll today.
