Trojans fall in final

Tri-Central’s volleyball team came up short in its first bid for a sectional championship, losing to Frontier 25-14, 25-15, 25-27, 25-11 in the Class A Clinton Prairie Sectional championship match Saturday night.

“We didn’t play our best [Saturday night],” TC coach Ron Byram said. “In the afternoon [semifinal], we played well. We beat Clinton Prairie the last time we played them, but they are a much better team. In the championship game, we could never get the whole game going at once. At one point, our receivers did a good job, but our servers were off. In the second half of the third set, we got everything going. We came back and won that one. The start of the fourth set, Frontier made a couple of good plays, and all of a sudden they were up seven points. We just could never get the whole game going at once.

“Overall, I was very pleased with the effort, and the whole season. We finished with an 18-16 record, which is the second-most wins in a season by a Tri-Central volleyball team, and it was the best finish with a sectional runner-up.”

Cecelia Rayl led Tri-Central with 16 digs, six service points and four blocks. Kaylee Colbert added 18 assists and eight service points. Tara Davis had 12 assists and seven service points. Hadley DeWeese came up with 14 kills and four blocks. Whitney Revolt contributed nine kills and three blocks. Haley Farris added 26 digs, followed by Ashley Devore’s 17. Amelia Moe had seven kills, and Shelby Ramsey had four blocks.

Tri-Central got to the championship by defeating host Clinton Prairie 25-19, 25-17, 26-24 in the semifinal earlier Saturday afternoon.

Farris led Tri-Central in the semis with 30 digs and 13 service points. Devore added 20 digs and eight service points. Davis came up with 20 assists and six service points. DeWeese contributed with nine kills and seven blocks. Ramsey added 10 kills and five blocks. Rayl finished with 19 digs. Colbert had 16 assists, and Revolt had eight kills.
