Purple Tigers win MIC golf crown

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



Kokomo finished 2-2 on the day to move to 4-10 on the season. The Kats opened the day with a 25-17, 25-18 loss to Washington Township, followed by a 25-17, 25-16 loss to Hammond Bishop Noll.

Kokomo rebounded with a 25-10, 25-13 win over East Chicago Washington before topping Hammond Clark in the final match of the day, 25-12, 25-11.

Tori Lauderbaugh finished the day with 33 kills and 10 digs. Kirsten Frey added 22 kills and three blocks. Alanis Jones added 16 kills and a pair of blocks. Brooke Smith added nine kills. Miranda Ogle dished out 63 assists and added 10 digs. Amanda Tran added 47 service receptions, 23 digs and seven service aces. Cheyenne Thomas added 11 digs.

“We still haven’t been able to put together a group of sets,” Kokomo coach Jason Watson said. “We are struggling to make long runs and keep opponents from making long runs. We’re getting batter at it, but in order to beat stronger opponents, we are going to have to get better at it. I was pleased to get a pair of wins, although those teams were struggling a bit.”



In what may be the final regular season matchup between the two schools, the Trojans took a 2-0 lead at the half before adding an insurance goal in the final three minutes to top the Wildkats (5-5) at home. The game did not count in the North Central Conference standings.

NC limited Kokomo to three shots on goal. Goalie Catherine Skaggs had five saves for the Kats, while Michaela Wade added a defensive save on a ball that got past the goalie.

“We lost to this team 6-1 last year and graduated 10 seniors while they only graduated three or four,” Kokomo coach Kevin Duggins said. “I was curious how we’d compete with them and to play them 2-0 until late was very encouraging. We had a few starters hurt, but our girls are getting better at possessing the ball and not just kicking it forward, even [Saturday] when the ball was in our end. We need to continue to improve on that as we get ready for games later in the season.”


Lydia Owens had 20 saves for the Titans.

”[We] played a very good Blackford team and kind of held our own but we were shorthanded with some injuries, so the girls fought hard, but Blackford was a bit too much for us,” Taylor coach John Piotrowicz said.
