Prep roundup, Oct. 4

Maconaquah moves to 6-0 in MIC volleyball.

“I’m definitely glad we got the win, yes, but this was probably the ugliest ballgame we’ve played,” Maconaquah coach Jessica Metcalf said. “We have lots of work to do heading into our tournament Saturday at Southwood. I told the girls we have to be playing better ball at this point in the season.”

North Miami def. Eastern 19-25, 25-19, 25-22, 25-22

The Comets fell to 15-8 on the season after the loss, dropping three straight sets after an opening-set win over the Warriors.

Lizzy Mavrick had 12 kills and 21 digs for Eastern. Kinsey Duke added seven kills and 12 digs. Courtney Clark finished with 24 service receptions and 15 digs. Quinlyn Hochstedler put up 32 assists. Gabby Castillo and Hannah Williams both added five kills, with Castillo tallying seven blocks and Williams adding six blocks.

“Especially when we’re at home, we need to play with a lot more enthusiasm and not get ourselves in a hole,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “We’ve been struggling with our hitting, not being able to put the ball own. That’s something we’re going to have to work on.”

Cass def. Taylor 25-18, 25-13, 25-10

Valary Farmer led the Titans with seven service points. Ashleigh Till had four blocks and three points and Hannah Mullinax had five digs.

“The team came out and played hard the first set and we did some good things and then in the second set we had to make some changes in our lineup due to an injury. We had kids step up and play. It’s unfortunate because we play well in spurts and do some good things and we lose momentum. We will keep working and we will get better,” Taylor coach Denise Leicht said.

Cl. Central def. Tri-Central 25-12, 25-14, 25-13

Hadley DeWeese led Tri-Central with six kills. Tara Davis chipped in 10 assists.
