HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Bulldogs, Generals open with volleyball wins

CAI, Young shut down Lanesville in opener

CLARKSVILLE — Clarksville’s volleyball team opened the season with a 25-6, 25-11, 25-8 thumping of visiting South Central on Monday.

The Generals had a .385 hitting percentage and finished with 13 service aces.

“I was really happy with our hitting percentage, and our back-row defense was outstanding, which really helped set up our hitters,” Clarksville coach John McEwen said.

General sophomore Cheyenne Bledsoe had 19 assists in her first start. Kayla Wallace led the Generals with nine digs and a team-best three aces. Maggie Kane and Ali Sparkman had five kills apiece to pace Clarksville.

NEXT: Clarksville (1-0) hosts Southwestern, Wednesday.

• New Albany rebounds after tough first set: In its season opener, New Albany dropped the opening set 25-19 to host North Harrison. But the Bulldogs recovered to win the final three sets, 25-15, 25-22 and 25-10.

“I thought once we settled down, it was a good overall team effort,” New Albany coach John Breeding said.

Breeding singled out libero Madison Dibble and setter Lindsey Harper for praise. Dibble had four aces and nine digs, while Harper led the Bulldogs with 13 assists.

Also for New Albany, Alexis Lete had a team-best nine kills and three blocks. Audrey Donastorg added seven kills and Kelsey Guess had five. Madison Almon had six digs and Sadie Meyer finished with five assists.

NEXT: New Albany (1-0) hosts Castle and Jennings County, Saturday.


• Creek tops Braves, Generals: Silver Creek shot a 185 to defeat Borden and Clarksville in a three-way meet Monday at Hidden Creek Golf Club.

Charlotte Seaton earned medalist honors for the Dragons with a 41, followed by 48s from teammates Lilly Smith, Liv Schmidt and Kaela Roberts.

“Right now, I’m happy with the progress our youngsters are making,” Creek coach Joe Ledbetter said. “We’re still pretty young with four sophomores and four freshmen. Hopefully, we can find a way to shave about 15 shots by the time the tournament rolls around.”

Borden shot a 219, led by Christina Fink’s 42. Clarksville was led by Miranda DeKorte’s 58.

NEXT: Silver Creek vs. Charlestown and Floyd Central, today at Hidden Creek.
