Purple Tigers win MIC golf crown

Grider sets a fast pace as Western boys rule Maconaquah CC invite.

Tri-Central (5-8) fell to Oak Hill in its other match, 25-22, 25-20, 11-25, 20-25, 15-11.

On the day, Tara Davis had 21 points and 28 assists for the Trojans, while Kaylee Colbert added 16 points and 18 assists. Shelby Ramsey stamped 22 kills and added six blocks. Hadley DeWeese had 14 kills to go with nine blocks. Hayley Farris finished with 66 digs, and Cecelia Rayl added 42 digs.

“We had moments where we were playing well,” TC coach Ron Byram said. “We’re just having trouble piecing it together for long periods of time. Our offense is better than it was last week, but is still a little too inconsistent. Cecelia Rayl has played well in the last two weeks. She’s been our most consistent player.”

ROSSVILLE INVITATIONAL

Maconaquah finished the day as the runner-up at 3-1 to improve to 10-3 on the season.

The Braves opened the day with a 25-18, 25-16 win over Seeger and followed with a 25-12, 25-18 win over Cass. The Braves then topped Rossville 26-25, 25-22 before falling to Mississinewa in the championship round, 26-24, 25-17.

Emily Wilson had 69 digs on the day for Maconaquah. Lynnsie Arion dished out 44 assists. Madison Turner added 47 digs. Jalyn Windsor finished with 20 kills. Michaela Walters added 15 kills and 22 digs and Ally Exmeyer added 14 kills.

“We couldn’t find our groove in the second set of the championship match,” Maconaquah coach Jessica Metcalf said. “We came out playing very flat. I’m not sure if it was the sitting for two games or what the problem was, but nothing seemed to work for us. Our passing wasn’t as accurate as it was earlier in the day, so that took away from being able to run an offense. Jalyn only had one kill in the last match, and that shows that things weren’t clicking.”

WABASH INVITATIONAL

Taylor went 0-3 on the day, falling to Bluffton, University and South Adams. Rachel Hafley and Kim Seal each posted 10 kills. Valary Farmer added 16 points, Seal added 15 and Hafley and Hannah Mullinax each added 14.

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