Middle blocker Gabby Castillo and outside hitter Lizzy Mavrick both hit double-digit kill numbers as Eastern’s volleyball team rallied to beat Carroll 23-25, 25-16, 25-15, 25-10 Monday in Flora.

Castillo finished with 16 kills, three block kills and eight blocks. Lizzy Mavrick had 11 kills, 10 digs and 10 service points. Hannah Williams had nine kills and 19 points. And Maddie Vint had five kills, seven service receptions, and eight points, including four aces.

“After the first set, we finally cut down a lot of our unforced errors and Gabby Castillo did a great job of stepping up and coming through with a lot of kills,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “She showed great leadership on the floor. Lizzy Mavrick did the same. Whenever she got the opportunity, she put the ball away.”

Eastern improved to 2-4.

“All around, I thought it was a good team effort,” Missy Mavrick said. “Everybody did their part. And Hannah Williams did a great of getting her serves in.”

McCUTCHEON DEF. KOKOMO 25-18, 25-18, 17-25, 25-17

Alanis Jones had 11 kills and four blocks for the VolleyKats, whose rally fell short at home. Kirsten Frey had nine kills and three blocks. Tori Lauderbaugh had six kills, four blocks and 20 service receptions. Miranda Ogle had 21 assists and 11 digs. Amanda Tran had 11 digs and 31 service receptions. And Brooke Smith had seven digs.

“I thought we played fairly solid, we just got down in the first two sets and rallied toward the end but it was too big of a hole,” Kokomo coach Jason Watson said. “We fought to win the third set and were hanging right with them and couldn’t make a play here or there to force a fifth set. Overall I’m happy with our effort and we’re starting to understand the game a little better.”
