> SOUTHERN INDIANA —
In a matchup of Sectional 62’s top two teams, Christian Academy’s volleyball team swept New Washington 25-19, 25-23, 26-24 at CAI — the location of Sectional 62 in late October — on Monday night.
Krista Boesing had 19 kills, three blocks and five digs to help lead the Warriors to the victory and a 12-6 record.
“We experimented with a lineup change tonight to help to focus on our blocking,” CAI coach Walter Pauly said. “We also tried to concentrate on our passing to create one-on-one hitting situations. Of course, we can always improve on our passing.
Emily Haworth added an eight-kill, five-ace performance for the Warriors. Alex Falcone had 30 assists and nine digs and Alex Lyons also had nine digs.
“Alex Lyons had a great night defensively,” Pauly said.
Caroline Ricks led the Mustangs with 14 kills and three blocks.
“Once again, New Washington’s Caroline Ricks is difficult to stop,” Pauly said.
Both teams face another sectional opponent tonight; CAI hosts Lanesville and the Mustangs host Borden.

Notes: Providence wins Ben Davis Tournament.
Quotes: Providence Coach Terri Purichia, “Today’s competition was very good for us. We had to play hard every point and work to stay focused for the entire match. Our serving today was excellent, and we were able to keep some really good teams out of system for a good portion of the day. We had a slow start in our first match against McCutcheon, but we were able to turn things around. The win against Burris was a big step for us mentally. Burris is a name this team has heard a great deal about recently, so to have an opportunity to play such a storied program and come away with a hard fought victory, was a confidence boost. I was really proud of our team in the last two sets for putting forth a great effort. This was a great tournament to win.”
