Cougar netters bow out in sectional final in four

The South Decatur volleyball team advanced to the sectional championship for the second straight year, but once again fell to host Hauser in the title match.

Hauser had defeated South in three sets in the title match last fall, but it appeared the Lady Cougars were going to force a fifth set Saturday.

South (22-10) fell to Hauser 13-25, 25-21, 18-25, 26-28 after dominating Madison Shawe 25-12, 25-5, 25-13 in the semifinal.

South head coach Lisa Bennett was pleased to see her team play with focus and advance.

“The girls played a great game this morning,” said Bennett. “It was nice to start out with a team that wasn’t too challenging for us to work out some of the sectional nerves. They played get as a team and it definitely showed in the way they were playing. We had a great serving game going this morning with a team total of better than 93 percent serving.”

South served 68-for-73 (93 percent). Junior Brittany Koors served 25-for-26 with 24 points and seven aces. Senior Clarissa Baltus served 10-for-10 with eight points and two aces, while senior Courtney Billingsley served 7-for-7 with three points and two aces. Junior Megan Niese served 13-for-15 with 11 points and two aces, and senior Ashley Johannigman served 8-for-10 with six points and two aces. Senior Julia Miller served 5-for-5 with two points and added an ace.

The Lady Cougars dominated at the net, hitting 57-for-60 with 20 kills. Johannigman and Miller each hit 13-for-14 with a team-high six kills apiece. Baltus hit 18-for-18 with five kills. Koors hit 8-for-8 with three kills, Niese hit 4-for-5 and junior Olivia Watkins hit 1-for-1.

Digs: Johannigman 8; Niese 6; Baltus 5; Miller 5; Billingsley, Mariah Green, Koors 2.

Assists: Koors 12, Green 2, Watkins 2, Miller 1, Morgan Eden 1.

Miller added two block-kills.
