H.S. VOLLEYBALL: Central rolls past Rock, Southern sweeps Berea

RICHMOND — The Lady Indians put together a solid all-around performance Thursday at home against Rockcastle County.

Madison Central moved to 5-0 on the season with a 3-0 win over the Rockets. The Lady Indians won by scores of 25-7, 25-18 and 25-20.

After rolling the first set, Central trailed 7-1 in the second set. Tyra Cain led the Lady Indians’ rally, connecting on nine straight serves. Katie Stuart then connected on seven straight serves to help Central close out the set.

For the match, Stuart had 17 assists on 30 sets, while Haleigh Morris had 11 kills on 17 attacks and was 100 percent on serves.

Payton Templeton had eight kills on 14 attacks and added two blocks.

Sammy Walzyck also had four blocks.

Central is set to return to action Tuesday at home against Berea.



Southern sweeps Berea Community

The Madison Southern volleyball team rebounded nicely from Wednesday’s loss to Danville by sweeping Berea Community in three games Thursday.

The visiting Lady Eagles won the games in dominant fashion, downing the Lady Pirates 25-12, 25-7 and 25-13.

On Wednesday, the Lady Eagles could never quite string together points and get a good run going.

Against Berea that wasn’t a problem, as three different occasions, the Eagles ran off seven consecutive points on their way to big wins.

Southern coach Jeremy Grant said he was pleasantly surprised with how his team bounced back after the Danville loss.

“I was a little worried that we might come out flat. But were really aggressive tonight and their energy level was really high,” Grant said.

After struggling a little bit with their serving in the first game, Grant said, the Eagles made a dramatic turnaround in the last two games, led by junior Sarah Castle and senior Morgan Tincher.

“We missed a lot of serves in the first game and I was a little aggravated by that, but Sarah and Morgan both served really well after that,” Grant said. “In both of the last two games, Sarah got in there and ran off 9-10 in a row. I think we only rotated three times in that second game.”

Southern will return to action on Tuesday when they host Burgin at 7 p.m.
