Logan soccer teams sweep at Anderson


The Warriors (1-3-1) fought through several hurdles and lightning delays to earn the draw in game two.

“Game two was bittersweet because we really felt like we earned a better result but we could never quite convert and were getting knocked around pretty well,” Eber said. “In the end we are responsible for not getting on the scoreboard. We can’t rely on anyone but ourselves to earn that win.”

Western Invite

Logansport competed at the Western Invitational on Saturday after running a shortened exhibition race on Friday night at halftime of the Logansport-Peru football game.

Ashlyn Lythgoe led the Lady Berries on Saturday morning with a 50th place finish in 22:50. She was followed by Kourtney True in 23:14, Maddi Zartman in 23:31, Gracie Musselman in 23:32 and Carlie Deardorff rounded out the scoring with a 24:16.

“I thought the times were pretty good for coming off a 1.7 mile event just about 12 hours earlier,” Logan coach Brian Morrill said. “The girls ran hard on Friday evening and we thought those times were very encouraging. Saturday was off a bit, but they had raced almost five miles in some pretty hot and muggy conditions. It takes a toll. I still think we are way ahead of where we were last year at this time and I think that will show up as soon as we get a Saturday with some cooler temperatures – maybe next week at Caston.”

Morrill said the Berries were 11th out of 13 teams on Saturday, but Abbi Zartman, who was third on the team Friday night, stepped in a hole around the mile mark and sprained her ankle. Jen Crafford is competing on restricted mileage and was held out of Saturday’s event for pre-cautionary measures.

“There was no reason to race Jen again on 12 hours rest – she wanted to go to the start line, but we want to be smart and have her around for the conference meet and the tournament. She is going to really help us in those meets,” said Morrill.
