> SOUTHERN INDIANA — The host Lions beat Crothersville, Cannelton and Clarksville to win Saturday’s Mike Warner Memorial Tournament at Rock Creek on Saturday.

The Lions had an easy time beating Cannelton 25-9, 25-14, took down Crothersville 25-19 in both sets and earned a big 25-17, 25-18 victory over Clarksville to claim the crown.

“I was very proud of the girls effort today,” Rock Creek coach Jennifer Brown said. “They are finally starting to work together as a team and were able to put together a solid full day of play.”

Susan McCoy led the Lions with 26 kills and 18 blocks.

“Susan had a great day today,” Brown said. “She has stepped into a leadership role and is leading by example.”

Katie Clapp had 58 assists, Marissa Weedin and Brittney Page each had 18 kills and Kyle Tincher added 14 kills for the Lions. McCoy, Clapp and Holly Whitworth, who finished with six kills, all made the All-Tournament team.

“Katie Clapp did an excellent job getting the ball to the hitters and Kylie Tincher, Brittney Page and Marissa Weedin had some tremendous kills,” Brown said.

Clarksville finished 2-1, beating Cannelton 25-15, 25-22 and Crothersville 25-19 and 25-22 before falling to Rock Creek.

Ali Sparkman paced the Generals with 28 kills, 22 digs, five aces and three blocks. Cheyenne Bledsoe had 54 assists for Clarksville.

“Rock creek is one of the most loud and enthusiastic teams we have faced all season,” Clarksville coach John McEwen said. “They do not get down after errors. That will keep them in and win them a lot of matches this season. I believe that was the difference in our match up today.”
