Apaches/Knights Advance In Volleyball Sectional

It was night two of the Southwood volleyball sectional with three of the four county teams in action. In game one Wabash took on North Miami, following behind 0-2 before a three game rally to win 22-25, 21-25, 25-18, 25-23, 15-9. In the second match of the night Southwood and Northfield took the court as the Lady Knights rolled to a 25-14, 25-22, 25-13 win.

The Lady Apaches got off to a horrible start, falling behind 6-12. Down 10-17 Wabash made a small run, scoring four straight with Katie Ford and Kristin Cromer recording kills to make it 14-17 then got it to within one at 18-19 on a Sydni Mullett tip, but couldn’t get over the hump in a 22-25 loss.

The Apaches got the exact same start in game two, quickly falling behind 1-6 and could never close the gap until 17-24 when Mullett nailed a kill that started a 4-0 run to get the score to 21-24 when a serve in the net ended game two 21-25.

Down 0-2 Wabash could either regroup or just go through the motions. The Lady Apaches chose choice number one, getting started on a Sarah Ritter kill and built a 5-0 lead.North Miami would chip their way back and cut the lead to 8-7 when Katie Ford would kill twice with Taylor Cain getting a block to open a 13-7 lead and build their lead to 20-11. North Miami couldn’t get any closer than six points as Wabash won game three 25-18.

Things were looking bleak for Wabash in game four as the Apaches fell behind 7-14 and were down 12-20 when the momentum changed. Taking advantage of several Warrior mistakes and a kill from Jaycee Parrett Wabash would go on a run and after kills from Katie Ford and Sarah Ritter the game was tied at 23. Again North Miami would hit the ball out of bounds and the Apaches had game point when Katie Ford nailed a kill to win game four 25-23 and tie the match 2-2.

With the adrenaline flowing and having all the momentum Wabash wasted no time taking control in game five, getting kills from Parrett and Kristin Cromer to grab a 5-2 lead.At 5-4 North Miami would hit the ball out of bounds four times and with a tip from Parrett wabash led 10-4. The Warriors closed the gap to 10-7 when the Apaches found Taylor Cain for two kills and a 13-7 lead. Wabash would win game five 15-9 and the match 3-2.

Kristin Cromer had 31 digs, 9 points, 13 kills

The Norse would get two kills from Tori Snyder and one from Cassidy Miller to cut the lead to 17-12, but with Anna Rees serving the Knights would rip off five straight to increase their lead to 221-12. Again Snyder stopped the run with a kill, but three straight Southwood points ended game one 25-14.
The Lady Norse got off to a better start in game two, grabbing a 6-3 lead off kills from Snyder and Arie Kennedy and held their three point lead to 9-6. Sami White would score on a tip and get in on a block with Bailey Lundmark as the Knights tied the score at 9. With the game tied at 12 the Knights would score five straight with Sarah Peters getting two aces and Harnish a kill to lead 17-12. Southwood built their lead to 21-14 when the Norse got a second wind. A kill from Holly Dyson started a 6-0 run that closed the gap to 21-20 before a Harnish kill. At 23-22 a Norse hit out of bounds and a White ace ended game two 25-22.
Up 2-0 over their county rival the Knights were looking for the finishing start to game three and got it when Katelyn Murphy got them started with a kill and a 7-0 run to start the game. The Knights would score 12 of the games first 13 points to lead 12-1 as the Norse struggled to play catch up. Northfield closed the gap to 18-8 when Murphy would kill again as the Knights scored four of the next five to lead 22-9.

Lady Norse Stumble On Senior Night

The Northfield volleyball team hosted 3A, #9 Mississinewa for senior night and their final game of the regular season Monday, falling to the Indians 17-25, 25-17, 19-25, 19-25.

Mississinewa got off to a good start in game one, grabbing a 9-3 lead that the Norse could just never make up. Northfield had one run that cut the Indians lead to one at 13-12 before the visitors took off again. Down 12-7 Cherish Leming knocked home a kill that ignited a 5-1 run for the Norse. Leming had two kills during the run. At 15-12 the Indians would score two points for every one of the Norse for the 19-25 final.

It looked like game two would be more of the same as game one when Mississsinewa grabbed a 3-0 lead when the Norse rebounded. Holly Dyson would get a kill along with Leming to make it 3-5 when the Norse went running. Tori Snyder banged home a kill that was followed by and Arie Kenedy block and kill as the Norse scored five straight to take an 8-5 lead. After an Indian tip the Norse would out score Mississinewa 6-2 to increase their lead to 14-8. During the run Snyder had a block, a kill and an ace. Mississinewa would close the gap to 15-13 when Cassisdy Miller drove one home, followed by Leming and the Norse led 18-13. At 19-16 Miller would kill again as Northfield scored five straight on their way to a 25-17 win and knotted the match 1-1.

Again it was Mississinewa getting the good start in game three, grabbing a 6-1 lead before the Norse started to peck away. A block from Leming and Miller made it 4-6, but the Indians answered and led 6-11. With Liz Howenstine serving the Norse got a kill from Kennedy and one from Snyder during a 6-1 run that tied the score at 12 when the Indians pulled away. Mississinewa would score six in a row and nine of the next eleven points to open a 15-22 lead, but the Norse were not done. After an Indian serve in the net Tori Snyder would hammer a kill that was followed by an Arie Kennedy kill and a Snyder block to cut the lead to 19-22 before Mississinewa scored the last three for a 19-25 win and led the Norse 2-1.

The theme of the night for Northfield was a bad start and again in game four it happened. Mississinewa jumped out to a 1-5 lead before things changed. A Snyder kill ignited a 4-0 run as the Norse scored six of the next eight to grab a 9-8 lead. Back came the Indians, scoring five of the next six to go up 11-14 when Cherish Leming killed while Abigail Poole served an ace and the score was 14-14. The Norse remained close until 18-20 when the Indians scored four straight to grab an 18-24 lead and went on to win game four 19-25 and the night 1-3.
