Prep roundup, Sept. 22

Comets' Duke earns runner-up finish at New Prairie Invite.


“We’ve struggled with putting oursevles in a hole in several of our matches this season and that’s something that we did not do, especially in that championship match. We held the lead that match and was able to finish it off.”

The Comets (11-6) had several contributors. Lizzy Mavrick totaled 23 kills, 19 digs and 11 serve receptions over the two matches. Also for Eastern, Hannah Williams recorded eight kills, 11 digs, five blocks and 15 service points, Gabby Castillo had 11 kills and four blocks, Quinlyn Hochstedler had 49 assists and 10 points, Courntey Clark had 17 serve receptions and 15 digs, Hannah Broo had 13 points and a dozen serve receptions and Maddie Vint had 13 points (five aces) and 10 digs.

TC Invitational

Tri-Central beat Kouts 25-22, 22-25, 15-7, then beat Caston 25-20, 25-16, and then beat Tri 16-25, 25-15, 15-6 in the championship to win its own six-team tournament.

Whitney Revolt had 26 kills for the day, and Shelby Ramsey had 25. Tara Davis had 48 assists. Haley Farris had 69 digs and Cecelia Rayl had 45. Ramsey had nine blocks and Hadley DeWeese had seven. Farris had 22 service points and Kaylee Colbert had 15.

“We played really well,” TC coach Ron Byram said. “Haley and Cecelia did a great job of serve reception, which then led to a fairly strong offensive performance. Kloe Derossett has worked her way into a back row position and made a lot of key defensive plays.

The Trojans improved to 10-8 on the season after winning all five matches this week.

“They had a goal for the week to win all five. They went out and did it [Saturday],” Byram said.

TC hosts Carroll on Tuesday. The varsity match has been moved to 5:30 p.m. because Carroll doesn’t have a JV squad.
