South spikers honor Sweet, advance in sectional

Hope — The South Decatur volleyball team advanced over Shawe Memorial in the Hauser Sectional 60 tournament Thursday night. The Lady Cougars won in three sets, 25-14, 25-20, 25-22. South will advance to the semifinal Saturday at 11 a.m.

South is now 14-16 on the season.

Earlier in the week, South hosted Crothersville Monday for Senior Night. The Lady Cougars honored South’s lone senior, Sarah Sweet.

“Sarah Sweet has contributed faithfully to the volleyball program over the past four years, and she will be missed next year,” said South head coach Lisa Bennett. “I hope that she has had a memorable senior year filled with positive experiences."

The host Cougars fell to Crothersville in three sets, 25-11, 25-11, 25-16.

“The girls played better tonight than they have the past few weeks, but we just couldn’t pick up a ball,” said Bennett. “Crothersville had a couple great hitters, but it was the serve-receive that hurt us more than anything. They had a couple servers that we just couldn‘t pass up their serves. Our passing isn’t where it needs to be going into sectional, so we definitely have some work to do over the next couple days to get it back. The girls have great potential going into sectional. I just hope they can get out of this slump that they seem to be in.”

Sweet led South in setting, 26-for-26 with three assists as her team set 55-for-55 on the night. Brittany Koors set 25-for-25 with a team-high seven assists.

Ashley Johannigman hit 20-for-23 with seven kills, a team high. Julia Miller hit 12-for-15. Clarissa Baltus hit 6-for-6 with two kills, while Lizzy Hedger added two kills.

Koors served team-bests with a 9-for-10 effort, one ace and five points. Baltus served 9-for-9 with five points. Miller served 7-for-7 with three points, and Sweet served 5-for-5.

Johannigman and Miller each led South with two block-kills.

Passing:  Koors 26-for-31 (87.5 percent), three digs. Megan Niese 33-for-47 (70 percent), team-high 10 digs; Johannigman 14-for-16, dig; Sweet 26-for-31 (84 percent), four digs; Mariah Green 19-for-28, three digs.
