Logan volley falls in 4 to sectional champ McCutcheon

Logansport was hoping this would be the year it would win its first volleyball sectional since class sports were enacted with Class 4A, Sectional 7 being at the Berry Bowl.

But McCutcheon had other ideas. The Mavericks knocked out the Berries in four games (28-26, 25-17, 20-25, 25-21) in a semifinal match on Saturday morning.

McCutcheon then defeated Harrison in four games (19-25, 25-21, 26-24, 25-23) in the final Saturday night to win its second sectional title in the last three years.

McCutcheon (14-19) will host No. 1-ranked Carmel in a regional game on Tuesday. Logan finishes 19-14.

Logan coach Jon Vernon said his squad played well, it was just not enough against the Mavericks.

“We’re right there. We were ahead in games. We were good today and in certain spots they played better than us,” he said. “I thought the kids played well. I thought the kids played hard, they played aggressive.

“Every game that we played today we were ahead, we just didn’t finish it out. That’s been the story for us this year is we just didn’t finish out games.”

The first game ended up being the key set of the match. The Berries switched some things up at the start of the match and appeared to rattle the Mavericks in jumping out to a 17-9 lead in set one.

But the Mavericks’ resolve was made of steel all day. They battled back and took the set with a 19-9 run.

“We have eight points to finish out the game, they came back,” Vernon lamented.

The Berries thought they had won the set 26-24 after a double hit call on the Mavericks. But the down official called a net violation on the Berries and after a long conference the officials deemed the infractions were simultaneous and had the teams replay the point in which the Mavericks ended up winning.
