Prep roundup, Sept. 25

Eastern beats Heights in boys soccer, volley.


EASTERN DEF. H. HEIGHTS 28-26, 25-16, 24-26, 25-16

The Comets got key performances from Maddie Vint and Kinsey Duke to help make up for Hannah Broo, who was out with illness, as the Comets (13-7) rolled to their sixth straight victory. Eastern improved to 4-1 in the Mid-Indiana Conference. Duke had eight kills, seven service receptions, 15 digs and 10 service points. Vint had seven service receptions, seven digs and nine service points, and Duke had eight kills.

Also for the Comets, Lizzy Mavrick had 16 kills, 16 service receptions and 24 digs. Hannah Williams had nine kills and four blocks. And Quinlyn Hochstedler had 41 assists, 10 digs and 15 service points.

“We got down in our first [set]. I thought the girls, like they’ve done all year long, fought really hard to take that first set. That was huge,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. She praised Vint and Duke for helping the squad make up for Broo’s absence and added that “I thought all around everybody did a great job of playing as a team. They’re doing a great job of playing pretty consistent and going out there and getting the job done.”

WESTERN DEF. TAYLOR 22-25, 25-22, 25-11, 18-25, 15-6

Western (1-2 MIC) dug deep for a five-set victory after losing setter Emily Jones in the fourth set after she hit her head on the floor. Jones had 25 assists before her injury.

Bretta Tate had 20 service points, including five aces, and 16 kills for the Panthers. Shelby Gilbert had seven digs and 29 service points, including 10 aces. Amanda Seaman had a dozen kills, then filled in for Jones at setter to finish the match.

“We got our momentum in the second game and started to play up to our level and then we had that big momentum switch. It was very emotional,” Western coach Nicky Rodman said. “I just want to say that I coached 12 of the most kind-hearted and compassionate girls, and they had nothing but 100 percent heart left out on that court to win it for Emily, and that’s exactly what they did. Amanda really stepped it up and they didn’t let much hit the floor. It was beautiful volleyball for these girls.”
