Brutus leads Purple Tigers over TC

Taylor claims share of MIC tennis title.


Tri-Central lost the first match by eight points, second match by two points and the third by 10 points.

“We played very well,” Tri-Central coach Ron Byram said. “We battled Madison-Grant the whole night, and we made some great plays. We were ahead 23-21 in the second game. Overall, I was pleased with the effort, and the caliber of play that we had.”

Hadley DeWeese led Tri-Central with eight blocks and five kills. Kaylee Colbert added eight assists and four service points. Shelby Ramsey contributed with six kills and five service points. Whitney Revolt had five kills and four blocks. Haley Farris followed with 27 digs. Tara Davis had 16 assists and Cecelia Rayl dug up 20.

H. NORTH DEF. KOKOMO 25-18, 18-25, 25-13, 25-13

Kokomo (6-12) lost its North Central Conference opener to a tough Viking team.

“We came out flat, and we turned it around in the second set,” Kokomo coach Jason Watson said. We fizzed out in the last two sets. We have to turn it around to make an impact in conference play.”

Tori Lauderbaugh led with nine kills and nine digs. Alanis Jones added five kills and two blocks. Kirsten Frey came up with five kills and two blocks, and Miranda Ogle had 15 assists and seven digs. Amanda Tran also had 18 digs.

TIPTON DEF. NORTHWESTERN 15-25, 25-17, 25-20, 25-23

Northwestern (7-8) was able to take the opening set, but was unable to sustain the lead in a home loss to the Blue Devils.

Hannah Ballard continued her onslaught with six points, an ace, 22 kills, five blocks and 21 digs to lead the Tigers.

Emily Harshman added 15 points, five aces and 36 digs. Kelsey Richards added 11 points and 22 digs. Kristin Ireland added six points, two aces, two blocks and 12 assists. Alexis Brown floored six kills, and Sydney Zeck added nine kills, two blocks and 29 assists.

“Unforced errors hurt us,” Northwestern coach Trina Yager said. “We started hitting into the net and out of bounds and it brought them down a little bit, but we fought back and played hard. We struggled with serve receive. We got the ball up, but just had trouble putting it away, pushing at it instead of swinging hard. That made a difference. The girls played a great match, but Tipton is a great team and we didn’t end up on the right side. We’re improving so much as a team, and I told the girls they had nothing to hold their heads down about.”
