Prep roundup, Sept. 17

NW volley squad wins local clash.



MAC 205, EASTERN 217

Medalist Brandi Jones fired a 45 to lead Maconaquah (8-10) to the win at Peru Municipal. Katelyn Turcheck (51), Hayley Williamson (54) and Courtney Turcheck (55) rounded out the Braves’ team score.

“We had our best score of the year for the front nine at Peru Municipal golf course,” Mac coach Chris Percival said. “We putted very well, and our iron play was much better than in past matches at the Peru course.

“We have been playing our best golf in the past few matches, and I am glad we have turned it on going into the last week of the season.”

Eastern’s top four scores came from Mallory Moreno (53), Sarah Sharp (54), Savannah Palumbo (54) and Maddie Williams (56).


NW DEF. EASTERN 25-19, 19-25, 25-20, 25-13

Hannah Ballard slammed 20 kills to lead Northwestern past visiting Eastern in four games.

Also for the Purple Tigers (6-6, 1-2 MIC), Emily Harshman recorded 12 points (three aces) and 27 digs, Kristin Ireland had 10 points and 17 digs, Sydney Zeck dished 25 assists, Megan Floyd served nine points and Kelsey Richards had 18 digs.

“We started off OK, then we kind of slowed down a little bit before we got back into the groove of things,” Northwestern coach Trina Yager said “They started talking and moving and playing their game better the last two sets.”

Eastern (7-7, 1-1 MIC) was led by Lizzy Mavrick’s 11 kills. She also had 13 digs and seven points. Quinlyn Hochstedler had 24 assists, 11 digs and nine points. Hannah Broo served 11 points.

TC DEF. WESTERN 25-9, 28-26, 26-24

Tara Davis served 15 points, including five aces, and dished 16 assists to fuel Tri-Central’s sweep of Western on the Panthers’ floor.

Also for TC, Hadley DeWeese floored five kills and Haley Farris and Cecelia Rayl combined for 41 digs.

Western was led by Bretta Tate (six kills), Amanda Seaman (eight digs) and Emily Jones (seven assists).

“The girls played tough,” Western coach Nicole Rodman said. “We just had to get that first game out of our system and then they played up to their potential. We just couldn’t close out the second and third games like we wanted to.”

ROSSVILLE DEF. TAYLOR 25-12, 25-6, 25-13

The Titans fell to the visiting Hornets in three.

Taylor coach Denise Leicht cited Hannah Mullinax for her defensive play and Rachel Hafley for her all-around play.



Tri-Central’s Trojans rallied from a 1-0 halftime hole to beat the visiting Warriors. Dalton Davis scored both goals for TC, with Jake Kimbrough providing assists.
