Hannah Ballard led the Tigers with 14 kills and eight blocks. Kristin Ireland added 27 digs, and Sydney Zeck distributed 24 assists.

TRI-CENTRAL DEF. EASTERN 25-17, 26-24, 25-19

After losing five matches in a row, Tri-Central (5-6) came out on top by sweeping Eastern (7-6).

“We have been working on offensive consistency, and we were a lot better [Thursday], so it was nice to see” Tri-Central coach Ron Byram said. “Our service was aggressive, causing Eastern trouble.”

Haley Farris led Tri-Central with 19 digs and 18 service points. Cecilia Rayl added 17 digs and seven service points. Hadley DeWeese came up with eight blocks and five kills, and Tara Davis had 14 assists and four aces. Shelby Ramsey added six kills, followed by Amelia Moe and Whitney Revolt each with five.

Eastern’s coach Missy Mavrick wasn’t happy with how her team started the match.

“Started off slow, and we couldn’t recover from that [Thursday],” Mavrick added. “We need to go back to work to get ready for a couple of conference games next week.”

Lizzy Mavrick led Eastern with 13 digs and 12 kills. Hannah Williams added nine service points, seven digs and five kills. Quinlyn Hochtedler came up with 27 assists and 13 service points, and Courtney Park had 17 serve receptions and 12 digs.

CASS DEF. KOKOMO 25-15, 21-25, 25-17, 25-23

Cass took it right to Kokomo (2-8) in winning in four sets.

Kokomo coach Jason Watson knows his team is struggling right now.

“We are still having trouble putting sets away when we get momentum,” Watson said. “We end up panicking or putting the ball down, and we lack confidence. But, we’re working on and getting better each day.”


NW 174, MARION 180, WESTERN 202

Northwestern (15-1) was six strokes better in defeating No. 12-ranked Marion, and Western came in third at Chippendale Golf Course on the championship front nine.

“It was a big victory over a ranked team,” Northwestern coach Randy Lindgren said. “The girls love greens with decent speed.”
