 Lady Panther Spikers Get Win Over Baptist Academy

August 27, 2008 - On Saturday, Knightstown's varsity volleyball team competed in the Southwestern Invitational, ending up with a 1-2 record on the day. The Lady Panthers started the day against eventual champion Greenwood, playing well but suffering a loss, 25-20, 16-25, 7-15.

In the tournament’s second round, the Lady Panthers overpowered Baptist Academy 25-8, 25-15. The girls fell to Southwestern in the third match 23-25, 12-25.

Knightstown was led on the day by Hannah Jackson, who had a good all-around effort. Her day included 10 kills, nine aces, and 10 digs. Michelle Hochstedler and Alexis Marsh added eight kills each, while Crystal Heim led in digs with 15.

Knightstown is now 1-3 on the season, with a home match Wednesday (today) against Blue River, an away match Thursday at Wes Del, and the Cowan Tournament on Saturday.

In other action, the Knightstown junior varsity traveled to Crispus Attucks, where they defeated the host Tigers 25-9, 25-21, and 25-20. Kristen Florea, who had seven digs, seven aces, and six kills, led the junior varsity. Shay Pope and Cortney Hastings had strong front row matches, with each contributing seven kills. Lindsay Kennedy added seven assists and three aces. The junior varsity is now 1-1 on the season.

The Knightstown varsity volleyball team opened the season with a 19-25, 15-25, 21-25 loss to Centerville last Wednesday night. Knightstown was led by Haley Cruse, who finished the match with 11 digs. Hannah Jackson had five kills and seven assists.

“We were a little tentative at times, and made a few too many errors, but the girls did not give up,” coach Chris Underwood said.
