 KHS Spikers Whip Baptist Academy

October 3, 2007 - Knightstown’s varsity volleyball team cruised to an easy 25-12, 25-13 and 25-8 victory over Baptist Academy last Tuesday night.

Janice Ortman led the Lady Panthers with five kills, while Brandi Lightner and Megan Grant each had four kills on only six attempts. Lightner and Hannah Jackson each had six assists, while Jackson added 14 aces on the night. Lindsay Kennedy served four aces in the last game of the match.

“This was a good match for the girls to relax and gain some confidence,” Lady Panther Coach Carrie Underwood said.

The Lady Panthers lost a tough three-game match to White River Athletic Conference foe Lapel last week, 24-26, 23-25 and 12-25.

Haley Cruse and Crystal Heim led in digs with eight each, while Jackson led in kills with eight and in blocks with four. Lightner led in assists with 10, and added three aces.

“We had the lead in game one, but did not finish them off,” Underwood said. “Hannah (Jackson) had her best blocking match of the year, but their six-foot middle eventually learned to hit around our block. We continued to struggle to hit for kills, and to put teams away when we get ahead.”

Last Thursday, Knightstown lost to Class 1A eighth-ranked Morristown 6-25, 17-25 and 7-25. Cruse led Knightstown in digs with eight, while Heim added six.

“We knew going in that Morristown was having a good season, and they simply played extremely disciplined volleyball,” Underwood said. “Our hitters struggled to find holes in their defense, and they came at us with a variety of attacks. They also limited our attack effectiveness with their aggressive serving.”

Knightstown’s varsity will play at Tri High in the Henry County Tournament this Saturday. The junior varsity will host the county tourney. The varsity girls return home next Tuesday to play Hagerstown, and close the regular season next Thursday at Tri. The volleyball sectionals begin Oct. 16.
