Lewis Cass’ volleyball team won at Caston in four games Tuesday night, 19-25, 25-21, 25-21, 25-18.
Maddy Eurit had 19 kills and five aces to lead the Kings (3-7). Gabi Hartley dished 38 assists, and Emily Robertson collected 27 digs.
“We had some successes [Tuesday], but we have to reduce our unforced errors,” Cass coach Gretchen Crum said. “We go to Kokomo and we were able to sneak by them last year. They’ll be gunning for us. We have to reduce our errors.”
Haley Hoover had 12 digs and five aces for the Comets (2-8). MicKayla Rans posted nine blocks, seven digs and three aces. Sarah Holt had six kills. Katelyn Miller contributed eight assists and four blocks, and Haley Small set up seven assists.
The Cass coach thought her squad’s serving might have been the difference.
“We pulled them out of what they usually try to do. They didn’t get the swings they wanted,” she said.
Harrison 3, Logansport 1
The Berries took the first set but were unable to keep the momentum going in a 17-25, 25-15, 25-23, 25-21 loss in West Lafayette.
“We came out and played well the first game,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “We were down by six or seven and made a run. Katie Easter served several points in a row and Lindsey Cheney served several points in a row and we got back into it.
“In game two they got us out of system running all over the place. They played better than us in game two. Game three could have gone either way. The kids played hard. The last one also could have gone either way. It was a case where they did a good job of getting us out of system.”
Kiley Victor had nine kills and 12 digs for the Berries (6-3), and Alaina Page had nine kills and four blocks. Syd Bullard added eight kills.
Bailey Kelley dished 13 assists and Hannah Jones added six. Kailey Vernon collected 13 digs and Lindsey Cheney added nine. Cheney had two aces, as did Katie Easter. Nakeya Penny added three blocks.
W. Central 3, Winamac 2
Winamac lost to its county rival on the road, 25-19, 6-25, 25-12, 11-25, 15-12.
“This was such a lopsided game on both sides. We really never got in a rhythm,” Winamac coach Cathy DeFries said. “This goes to show you that if you give a team room they will take advantage of it, and they did. We just really beat ourselves, too many errors and bad timing.”
Heidi Hendryx posted 18 kills for Winamac (8-7, 1-3 Midwest Conference). Taelor McClure had 11 kills. Whitney Hook set up 36 assists. Bethany Brogdon collected 15 digs.
Alivia Kruger had 15 kills for the Trojans (3-9, 1-1). Autumn Wireman dished 21 assists.
Delphi 3, Carroll 0
After a close first set Delphi pulled away with the final two to win in straight sets, 25-23, 25-16, 25-16.

Culver Academy 2, Logansport 1
The Eagles scored the game-winning goal with 2:38 left in the contest.
Ehpa Doh scored the Berries’ (4-5) lone goal of the contest.
“We had a tournament hangover — a very sluggish start,” Logan coach Mike Turner said. “We scored first, but we were giving up too many shots. [Goalkeeper] Connor Kinnaman kept us in the game. ... Connor had an outstanding game.”
It was truly a fitting championship for the Berries, who were in their element, winning the title with a 4-2 win Monday over Kankakee Valley in the midst of Plymouth’s Blueberry Festival.
Orlando Casimiro scored two goals to lead Logansport, which went 3-0 in the tourney. Pedro Hernandez and Ramon DeLatore added a goal apiece.
Hernandez, DeLatore, Noe Valencia and Orelio Baltazaar each had assists.
“Winning a midseason tournament is a good confidence builder,” Logan coach Mike Turner said.
Casimiro opened up the scoring just two minutes into the contest, and the score was 1-0 heading into halftime. Hernandez quickly struck with another goal two minutes into the second half. KV got to within one on a penalty kick and tied it at 2-all midway through the second half. Just 30 seconds later Logan retook the lead on Casimiro’s second goal of the contest. DeLatore then struck four minutes later, all but sealing the title.
Twin Lakes 3, Carroll 2
Twin Lakes overcame a 2-0 halftime deficit with three unanswered goals in the second half in Flora.
Brady Wiles and Martin Justinussen scored the goals for Carroll (4-3). Justinussen and Gavin Hancock each added an assist.
Delphi 7, Winamac 1
Branden DeGroot scored the lone goal for the Warriors (0-6-1) after a booming kick by goalkeeper Zach Markley in Delphi. But the Oracles scored four unanswered goals in the second half to win going away.
“We didn’t play that poorly for long segments of the game,” Winamac coach Mark Eber said. “They had a couple big and kind of fast guys up top that punished us whenever we gave them a crack of daylight. The kids fought through it, and the bench only allowed one very late goal after they took over. It’s finding a silver lining, I know, but these are too good of kids with too much going for them to see this as much more than a chance to learn and get better.”
Logansport 4, Twin Lakes 0
The Berries posted a shutout victory in Monticello to improve to 3-1-1.
Whitney Jennings scored two goals and Mallory Rowe and Amber Hart added a goal apiece. Sydney Thompson and Madyson Price each had an assist. Goalkeeper Elaine Evanich had the shutout.
“It was a great defensive effort,” Logan coach Todd Reiff said.
Carroll 5, Rossville 0
Rossville forfeited all three singles points. In doubles play, Carroll’s Trevor Ayres and Brandon McCarty won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1, and Will Taylor and Brett Miller won 6-4, 6-3 at No. 2.
“Rossville had to forfeit due to some suspensions. However, I believe we still played well against their remaining players,” Carroll coach Robert Kauffman said.
