Local sports roundup – September 11



Owls sweep Jets

Coach Angie Lucas said she likes the direction her Seymour volleyball team is headed following a 25-17, 25-11, 25-17 win Monday night in the Lloyd E. Scott Gymnasium.

“This is the best we’ve played yet this season,” she said. “Hauser is a very good team, a very well-coached team. They’re just so scrappy, they just keep every ball alive, and it was hard for us and we came out strong and aggressive in all three sets and never let down, so that’s a huge improvement.

“Communication is doing much better on our court and it’s always nice to have Jess Blevins back. She’s been out with an ankle injury. She played with us this weekend so it was good to have Jess back on the court.”

In the first set, an ace serve by Chloe Criswell gave the Owls a 6-2 lead. After the Jets tied the score at 6-6, Blevins had three kills and Carlee Robinson served an ace to give the Owls a 12-10 lead. The Owls went on an 8-3 surge to lead 24-17, and Criswell and Robinson had a block for set point.

In the second set, the Owls broke a 1-1 tie with six straight points to lead the rest of the way. Blevins served an ace to put the Owls on top 15-4, and back-to-back kills by Blevins and Makenna Fee set the score 24-10, and set point came on a serving error by the Jets.

Hauser held a 13-11 lead in the third set before the Owls rallied with a block by Blevins and Abby Schmidt giving the Owls a 14-13 lead.

Another ace by Fee put Seymour on top 20-14, and Blevins, Grace Schrader and Criswell had kills down the stretch to help the Owls close out the win.

The Owls had 26 kills with Blevins leading with 10 and Criswell had six. The Owls were 64-for-72 (six aces) in serves. Fee was the leader in assists with 22 and Hayley Harpe was the leader in digs with 16.
