Logansport volley gets past MIC leading Maconaquah

LHS boys tennis tops Delphi to improve to 14-2.

Logansport’s volleyball team survived a test against Mid-Indiana Conference leader Maconaquah in four games on Wednesday in the Berry Bowl, 25-17, 23-25, 30-28, 25-20.

“They played hard and their kids did a good job,” LHS coach Jon Vernon said of the three-time defending MIC champion Braves. “They’re not Harrison or McCutcheon, but they’re better than they were last year.”

Sydney Bullard had 23 kills and two blocks to lead the Berries (9-8). Lindsey Cheney collected 41 digs and an ace.

“Those two kids did as well tonight as they’ve done in awhile,” Vernon said.

Nakeya Penny had 11 kills and Paulie Frye added 10 kills and a block for Logansport. Hannah Jones had 14 digs to go with 28 assists. Katie Easter dished 25 assists. Karlee Vernon added an ace.

Jon Vernon would like to see more consistency from his squad after a solid three-game win over Lafayette Jeff on Monday.

“We don’t have the focus every time. We have some players that are sick or injured right now,” he said. “We played well Monday against Jeff. I’d like to see that consistency from one night to the next. It’s something that’s not there but we’ll keep plugging away and get better and keep winning.”

The Berries are taking a 1-1 North Central Conference record into tonight’s home match against Marion.
