Jr. High/Middle School Volleyball

Knightstown 2, Blue River Valley 1 (8th)

The 8th-grade Viking girls traveled southwest within Henry County Thursday night and lost to the host Panthers 21-25, 25-21, 9-15.

“Both teams were equally competitive and brought their game to the court,” Blue River Coach Hope Rhodes stated. “Each game started slow going back and fourth with points. Our team may have not pulled off a win, but they played hard, forcing Knightstown to compete in three sets. They keep improving every game and showing what they can do.”

For Blue River, Kearston Perdue had five aces and four kills, Maciah Driskell an ace, Isabelle Perdue three aces, Trinity Driskell five kills and three aces, Mariah McCotter two aces, and Alivia Koontz a kill and an ace apiece.

Randolph Southern 2, Blue River Valley 0 (8th)

The 8th-grade Viking girls traveled east on U.S. 36 Sept. 4 and were defeated by the host Rebels in straight sets 19-25, 22-25.

“Nerves and feelings were in the air when we showed up to play Randolph Southern,” Blue River Coach Hope Rhodes said. “It is always hard to play against a friend and a previous teammate. Both sets started with us down in points. Quickly we gained points back and ended up keeping the scores close, even tying them at some points. We played very well with Randolph Southern but couldn’t come out with a win. The girls never gave up and kept pushing through even being behind.”
