Berries go 2-2 on the day at their Classic

Berries go 2-2 on the day at their Classic

Logansport’s volleyball team went 2-2 for a fourth-place finish at its annual Logan Classic on Saturday.

The Berries are now 4-4 on the season.

The Berries opened with a three-game win over Knox, 27-25, 22-25, 15-10.

Syd Bullard had 10 kills in the win. Hannah Jones had 20 assists, four aces and six digs. Lindsey Cheney collected six digs, and Monika Ness added three kills and two blocks.

“We played better in spurts,” LHS coach Jon Vernon said. “Against Knox, Pioneer just beat them in five and we played pretty well against them this morning. We did a very good job against them.”

The Berries were handed a 25-15, 25-13 loss by Crown Point in their second match.

Bullard had six kills, Jones dished 15 assists and Cheney and Kailey Vernon each had four digs. Ness floored four kills and Paulie Frye had a block and an ace.

“Crown Point was very athletic,” Jon Vernon said. “They’re a very strong northern Indiana team. They were just better than us. For the most part we did all right.”

The Berries turned around and swept South Bend Washington 25-22, 25-15.

Bullard had 10 kills and Karlee Vernon added seven. Katie Easter collected 11 digs and an ace, and Cheney had five digs and an ace. Jones dished 29 assists to go with an ace.

“Against South Bend Washington the first game we didn’t play very well, our serve receive wasn’t very good. The second game we played very well and did some good things,” Jon Vernon said.

The Berries closed out the day with a loss to Huntington North, 14-25, 25-12, 15-9.

Bullard had eight kills and Frye and Nakeya Penny added three apiece. Easter collected 11 digs. Bullard added two aces and a block. Ness had a block. Karlee Vernon and Jones each added an ace. Jones also dished 18 assists.

“In the last match against Huntington North in the first game we played our best game of the year,” Jon Vernon said. “The kids really played hard and things were clicking and flowing like they did this summer. We just weren’t very consistent in the second and third games with our serve receive. We’ve got to keep working at that and get better. When we don’t play well that’s usually the starting point. Our serve receive started falling apart and we’ve got to get it back together.”
