Prep roundup, Oct. 18

Northwestern’s volleyball team topped visiting Carroll 23-25, 26-24, 25-17, 25-23 Thursday night.

“It was senior night. We have two seniors, Emily Harshman and Kelsey Richards. They both played well,” Northwestern coach Trina Yager said. “[It] was a hard-fought game. Carroll’s team has improved quite a bit from last year. They gave us a run for our money. We lost the first set and our girls fought hard and came back and won the second set 26-24. The third set wasn’t as hard of a fight, but the last set we had to battle back from behind to win 25-23. The girls are learning to fight until the last point is scored.”

Hannah Ballard powered the Tigers’ attack, finishing with 25 kills and five block kills. She also had 23 digs and eight service points. Alexis Brown had 12 kills, two block kills and five digs.

Also for Northwestern (12-12), Whitney Zeck had 17 points (two aces) and five kills, Harshman had 25 digs, Kristin Ireland had 12 digs and 10 points and Sydney Zeck dished 45 assists and also had five digs.

The Worl sisters led Carroll’s attack — Bailey had 21 kills and Lauren had 19. Lauren also served four aces. Libby Eller offered 26 digs and solid passing.

Kokomo def. Marion 25-11, 25-19, 25-13

The Wildkats took a convincing win on senior night, topping the Giants to finish .500 in North Central Conference play at 3-3. Kokomo improved to 12-19 overall.

Tori Lauderbaugh finished with 11 kills, seven digs and a pair of blocks. Kirsten Frey added 11 kills and four blocks. Alanis Jones gathered seven kills, while Brooke Smith added five kills and five digs. Miranda Ogle distributed 23 assists and added six service aces. Amanda Tran led the defense with 13 digs and 13 service receptions, and Schuyla Sharp added four digs and five receptions.

“With all the senior night festivities it would’ve been easy to lose focus, but we were able to get right on them and apply pressure,” Kokomo coach Jason Watson said. “They blocked us quite a bit early, but we were able to adjust, keep it in play and put it down, hitting .205 as a team, which is good for us. We need to work on our confidence serving-wise, we’re still not getting some serves in play and missing our areas.
