Lewis Cass volleyball tops Caston in four games

Winamac tops West Central; Logan girls soccer blanks Twin Lakes.

Lewis Cass’ volleyball team defeated visiting Caston in four games on Tuesday, 25-15, 22-25, 25-10, 25-15.

Cass coach Gretchen Crum was happy with the first set but said her squad went backwards in the second set before getting the final two sets for the win.

“We won going away in the first set,” Crum said. “The talk in the huddle was not to let it go to our head, so we let it go to our head, and we made every single error possible in the game of volleyball in set two.

“Aside from that, Caston was not going away. They hopped on our serve receive errors, picked on people and dug up balls. Third set we played hard and finally served to their weakness. We tried very hard to keep the speed of the game up, and that is better for us.”

Crum credited the Comets.

“We knew we had to keep our eyes on Haley Hoover, who can do it all for them. We have to reduce our hitting errors,” she said. “We need a well balanced attack to keep teams interested. The Caston girls look like they are doing a lot of the things coach McFarland wants, and she’s getting results. We will see them again at the county tournament.”

Tori Powell led the Kings with 10 kills, four digs, four aces and two blocks. Aubrey Young added four kills, four digs and 2,5 blocks. Trisha Hartley came up with 10 kills and 9.5 blocks. Claire Crum contributed with eight digs and five kills. Gabi Hartley led with 17 assists, and Bailey Gremelspacher added 13 assists. Kassi Zeck added 11 digs and Karley Arion totaled six digs.

Winamac 3, W. Central 1

Winamac had to go four sets before getting the 25-15, 25-8, 25-27, 25-20 win over West Central in Midwest Conference action.

“Our first two games were pretty consistent, but after that we started to unravel,” Winamac coach Cathy DeFries said. “Missing serves put us in a hole that we had to battle out of, but it was just too late. We just have to keep our focus in three straight games. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen for us [Tuesday]. A win is a win, and we will take it, but we need get our offense back in the positive numbers.”
