Prep roundup, Oct. 18


“I appreciate my three seniors [Lauderbaugh, Sharp, Jones] and all they’ve done in their four years. They’re the first ones I’ve had since they were freshmen.”

Wabash def. Eastern 25-22, 25-17, 25-21

The Comets finished the regular season at 17-11 after the home loss to the Apaches.

Lizzy Mavrick led Eastern with 22 kills, 19 digs and 15 receptions. Hannah Williams added six kills and six blocks. Kinsey Duke finished with six kills and 12 digs. Gabby Castillo was strong at the net with eight blocks. Quinlyn Hochstedler distributed 33 assists and added 10 digs, and Courtney Clark added 22 receptions and 10 digs.

“It’s tough to end the season with a loss,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “It was senior night, and you hate for the seniors to end the regular season that way. You’d like to be able to remember that night with a win and you’d like to go into the tournament with momentum. We will just have to take this next week and work on things that we haven’t been doing well so we can get ready for the sectional.”

TRI-CENTRAL DEF. CL. PRAIRIE 25-13, 25-21, 25-16

The Trojans beat the visiting Gophers in Hoosier Heartland Conference play to secure a tie for third place.

Shelby Ramsey slammed nine kills to lead Tri-Central, which improved to 15-15 overall. Hadley DeWeese was strong at the net with nine blocks. Tara Davis had 17 assists. Haley Farris and Cecelia Rayl offered solid defense and were strong on serve receive.

NORTHFIELD DEF. MAC 25-23, 25-22, 25-17

The Braves dropped their regular-season finale at Northfield, dropping their record to 21-11.

“The first two sets, we played well. If we eliminate our service errors, then we would have been probably exceeding 25 points. We had more service errors [Thursday] than we’ve had in a long time,” Maconaquah coach Jessica Metcalf said. “We have a couple girls who continue to play really good ball. I just keep telling the team, ‘A couple is not enough. We need six girls at 100 percent, start to finish.”

Michaela Walters finished with five kills, seven digs and a dozen serve receptions for the Braves. Lynnsie Arion had 12 assists, six digs and seven service points. Jalyn Windsor had three kills and eight blocks. Emily Wilson chipped in 13 digs.

Maconaquah faces Peru in the Class 3A Peru Sectional on Thursday.
