Kings, Berries win to advance to today's sectional final


Lindsey Cheney led the way with 24 digs, followed by Hannah Jones (10) and Kailey Vernon (8). Paulie Frye and Monika Ness had three blocks apiece. Jones dished 23 assists and Katie Easter added 16.

Glenn 3, Winamac 0

The Warriors dropped a 25-15, 25-12, 25-21 match at John Glenn.

Savanna Button had seven kills to lead Winamac. Bethany Brogdon had 15 digs. Taylor Jones set 14 assists.

“Plagued with errors again got us,” WHS coach Cathy DeFries said. “We can’t win games with more errors than kills. We continue putting ourselves in negative percentages which doesn’t help us out.”

Logan 3, Northwestern 3

Logan recorded a tie at Class A No. 13 Northwestern.

Orlando Casimiro recorded a hat trick to lead the Berries (2-9-1), all coming in the second half. Pedro Hernandez, Ram Bo and Jesus Aguilar each had an assist.

The Berries stormed back from a 3-0 deficit to record the tie.

“We started the game as flat and disconnected as we could have been,” LHS coach Mike Turner said. “Bad pressure, no balance, Jesus Martin just misplayed all three goals.

“The second half was a different story. We were a completely different team. Pressure, balance, possession and finally some goals. It was an awesome effort in the second half. It’s something to build on for sectionals.”

The Berries, who would have went 6-5-1 and 4-2 in the NCC this year if not for the use of an ineligible player that caused four forfeited wins, are hosting a Class 2A sectional this year.

They face the Kokomo/Western winner at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Marion and Mississinewa are in the other bracket. The final is at 1 p.m. a week from Saturday.

Carroll 5, Winamac 0

The Cougars (8-7-1) recorded the shutout win over visiting Winamac (2-11-3).

Elliot Packard had a hat trick to lead the Cougars. Justin Willoughby had a goal to go with three assists. Sybyl Pencek added a goal.
