Pirates finish 0-3 at Bedford: Charlestown dropped decisions to North Harrison, Eastern and South Central at Saturday’s Southern Indiana Invitational at Bedford North Lawrence, but the Pirates may have played their best volleyball of the season.

In the second match, Charlestown pushed Eastern to the limit in an ultra-competitive 25-23, 23-25, 15-17 loss.

“[We] didn't come away with a win for the books this weekend, but we definitely had a win for the program,” first-year Charlestown coach Tammy Nuxoll said. “The girls really played as a team this weekend, encouraging each other from the floor and the bench.”

Cassie Martin had a nice day for the Pirates. She led them four digs and three aces against the Musketeeres and five kills against South Central. Lauren Crowe finished with four kills and three blocks against Eastern and four kills against South Central.

“I am very proud of the way the girls played and I anticipate continued improvements,” Nuxoll said.
