Prep roundup, Sept. 24

Western tops TC in girls soccer.

Eastern’s volleyball team continued its hot play Monday, beating Frankton 25-23, 25-22, 25-19 on the Eagles’ home floor.

The Comets (12-7) have won five straight.

“We starting to play more consistent, starting to clean things up a little bit, so that has been helping,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “It’s something I’ve been stressing and we’ve been working on in practice. It’s starting to show out on the court.”

Against Frankton, Lizzy Mavrick recorded 13 kills, a dozen digs and 11 serve receptions to lead the Comets. Hannah Williams also had a nice match, flooring eight kills and serving 12 points.

Also for Eastern, Gabby Castillo had seven kills, Quinlyn Hochstedler had 32 assists and seven digs and Courtney Clark had 12 serve receptions, 10 points (nine aces) and nine digs.

“Frankton has a pretty good team. They have a couple nice hitters,” Missy Mavrick said. “Lizzy stepped up, in the first set especially, and kind of got us going. She played really well on the back row. She hit really well. Gabby and Hannah came up pretty big, especially at the end of the match, with some big blocks that sealed the deal for us.”


Taylor 5, Carroll 0

Taylor made quick of Carroll on the Cougars’ courts, posting 6-0, 6-0 wins at all three singles points and also at No. 1 doubles.

Jack Lipchik, Camden Kimbler and Casey Glick scored the singles wins and Cole Schroeder and Austin Douglas took the win at No. 1 doubles. Clay Dishon and Connor Leicht took a 6-0, 6-4 win at No. 2 doubles to complete the sweep.

“We just had a little too much firepower for them,” Taylor coach Dave Wise said, noting the Titans had a big advantage in experience.

Taylor (8-2) now turns its attention to its final week of Mid-Indiana Conference play. Taylor hosts Northwestern today and visits Cass on Thursday. If the Titans win both matches, they will secure at least a share of their second straight MIC championship.
