Logan wins thriller

Pioneer, Winamac also net volleyball wins

Logansport’s volleyball team secured a third-place finish in the North Central Conference with a five-game win (18-25, 25-14, 25-19, 23-25, 16-14) over Huntington North on senior night Thursday.

“We needed something like this because you never know if you might have to play a 5-setter in the sectional,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “The girls showed perseverance and played hard and played through it. We had a lot of good plays. They were diving on the floor and showed a lot of intensity and heart.”

Kiley Victor had 18 kills and 11 digs for the Berries (21-6, 5-2 NCC). Syd Bullard floored 15 kills. Alaina Page had 12 kills, 12 digs and 17 assists.

Lindsey Cheney and Katie Easter each collected 10 digs. Bailey Kelley dished 17 assists.

“Kiley had 18 kills and played good defense,” Vernon said. “Alaina had 12 kills, 17 assists and 14 service points, another great night. Paulie Frye was 6-for-6 in kills. She’s worked her way back to the lineup after being injured. Hopefully this was a breakout match for her. She’s starting to get comfortable again around the net.

“Huntington is a good team. I could tell during warmups it would take us awhile to get started after a long night at Lafayette Central Catholic. They were ready to play after four or five days off, but we got them out of system in games 2, 3, 4 and 5.”

The Logan coach talked about seniors Victor and Page.

“Alaina and Kiley have won 20-plus matches all four years. That’s remarkable for a group of seniors who have played varsity from their freshman year,” he said. “We’re ready to turn the corner. We have younger kids coming to play, too. I see the NCC teams and we’re right there. If we play with a lot of intensity and heart, that’ll put us over the top to win an NCC or sectional title.”
