Comets take down Wildkats for big opening win

Western also opens boys soccer season with win.



Eastern 181, Tipton 195

Mallory Moreno carded a 43 to lead Eastern to the win on the par-35 front side at Tipton Municipal, the Comets’ first win of the season.

Savannah Palumbo (45), Maddie Williams (46) and Sarah Sharp (47) rounded out the Comets’ top four scores.

Eastern coach Mike Hamilton noted his players saw hard work in different facets of the game pay off with the win.

“I’m really elated with a 181. I figured we were good for maybe a 195 or a 190, but 181 really is a great score for us to have on our first win,” he said.

Tipton’s Lela Crawford won medalist honors with a 40.


MACONAQUAH DEF. OAK HILL 25-18, 25-14, 25-14

The Braves’ offense was in stride in the opening match of the season.

Michaela Walters had a dozen kills and five service points for Mac. Ally Exmeyer had 11 points, five kills and 18 digs. Jalyn Windsor had eight kills. Madison Turner had 15 service points. Emily Wilson had seven points. And Courtney Sarver had 10 digs.

“I was very impressed with our play,” Mac coach Jessica Metcalf said. “We came out and passed the ball very well. I told the girls ‘passing is key to running our offense.’ We def did a much better job passing than I had expected. We have our first conference game on Thursday against Peru, which is a big rival.”

S’WOOD DEF. EASTERN 25-8, 25-19, 25-20

It took the Comets a game to adjust to the quality of play from Southwood before rebounding to make for some close sets.

“First set I feel like we had some nerves with it being our opening match,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “Southwood’s a good team. I thought the second and third sets we settled down and played pretty well. Especially in the third we hung with them and even took the lead in the middle of the set.

Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
