Panther athletes make waves

Grider sets course record at Oakbrook; Western boys soccer reaches final


Taylor Coram and Cheyenne Eltrighan each scored a goal for the Wildkats, and goalie Catherine Skaggs had three saves.


Taylor (0-2-1) lost its opener in the invite 1-0 to host school Frankfort, then tied Tri-Central 1-1 in the consolation match.

Against Frankfort, goalie Lydia Owens had 13 saves.

“We played pretty well in that game, but we’re playing right now with 12, or at least [Saturday] we did,” said Taylor coach John Piotrowicz, whose team is dealing with injuries. “They had a lot more subs and [could maintain more] pressure and that was the difference.”

In the third-place match, Taylor’s Savannah Delgado scored in the first half to open the scoring after a feed by goalie Owens. TC equalized midway through the second half.

“We played much better [Saturday],” Piotrowicz said. “That’s just our third match of the year so this week we’ve been trying to get organized. I think our defense has definitely come together, so we need to get the front end next.”


Northfield Invitational

Eastern posted a 2-1 record in the invitational with victories over Southern Wells (25-15, 25-16) and Lakeland (25-10, 25-20). Northfield beat Eastern 26-28, 25-19, 15-10 in the Comets’ middle match of the day.

“I thought we played a lot more consistent, which is something we’ve been working on. I thought all the girls did a good job with that,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “I thought against Northfield, we played excellent defense. They have about three good hitters and we did a great job blocking against them also.”

Lizzy Mavrick totaled 29 kills, 36 serve receptions and 24 digs over the three matches to lead the Comets (5-5). Also for the Greentown gang, Hannah Williams had 18 kills, a dozen digs and 22 service points; Gabby Castillo had 18 kills and three block kills; Quinlyn Hochstedler had 75 assists, seven kills, four blocks and two block kills; Hannah Broo served 16 points (four aces); and Courtney Clark contributed 20 serve receptions and 20 digs.
