Prep roundup, Sept. 25

Eastern beats Heights in boys soccer, volley.


“Kind of a frustrating game for us,” Taylor coach John Piotrowicz said. He noted the Titans “pretty much controlled most of the first half and didn’t play too badly in the second. They scored on a set piece on a [free] kick direct. The girls played hard but we couldn’t put together another enough passes in the attacking third ... to put any goals in the net.”


Cheyenne Eltringham scored off a Taylor Coram assist as the Kats fell at home to rival Marion. Catherine Skaggs had two saves for Kokomo, which dropped to 6-6 overall and 1-2 in the North Central Conference.

“The second half, you’re happier to see after a 4-0 [first] half to see the game go to a 1-1 [in the second half], but we left a lot wanting in the first half,” Kokomo coach Kevin Duggins said. “We didn’t come in ready to play physical and aggressive. Marion came out, they really wanted us to play physical and with the ball as well as well. Hopefully we get a chance to show them who we really are in sectionals.”


Kokomo def. Lafayette Jeff 25-20, 25-20, 27-25

The VolleyKats displayed a diverse offense in a straight-set win over the visiting Bronchos, improving to 6-11 on the season.

Tori Lauderbaugh led Kokomo with 13 kills and eight digs. Kirsten Frey added 12 kills, while Alanis Jones added 10 kills and Brooke Smith six kills. Miranda Ogle dished out 34 assists, and Amanda Tran led the defense with 27 digs and 24 service receptions.

“Amanda was on fire,” Kokomo coach Jason Watson said. “You don’t often talk about a libero being on fire much, but she was. It was good to get a win against a sectional opponent and beat a Lafayette team. I thought we played pretty strong. Our serving was up and down and pretty inconsistent, but we did a good job of keeping the ball in play and hit .255. We played well together and came away with a sweep. That bodes well as we enter conference play Thursday against Huntington.”
