The Lady Warrior volleyball program took two steps in the right direction Thursday night, picking up sweeps in the varsity and JV games at Bethany Christian.
Alli Ousley had 11 digs, 10 assists and seven kills to lead Wawasee (3-2) to a 25-15, 25-21, 25-19 win over the Lady Bruins in Waterford Mills. Kaitlin Goines added seven kills and two blocks while Anne Beer offered 16 digs.
“This is a good comeback week heading into our first tournament this weekend,” said Wawasee head coach Jeff Phillips of his team, which has won three straight games ahead of the Westview Tournament this Saturday.
The JV moved to 7-1 with a 25-24, 25-18 win at Bethany. Becca Anderson had 11 digs and a block defensively while Kasey Napier led the offensive push with seven kills.
Golfers Grab Two At Memorial
Wawasee (8-1, 3-0 NLC) recovered from a tough night in Goshen on Tuesday to claim a pair of wins at Christiana Creek, shooting a 207 to beat Concord (211) and host Elkhart Memorial (233).
Elizabeth Jackson of Wawasee and Ashlyn Ball of Concord shared medalist honors with 48s while Mikala Mawhorter and Alex Goralczyk of Wawasee had the next lowest rounds with 50s. Kylee Rostochak added the Lady Warriors’ fourth score with a 59 and Kamryn Foy was one back at 60.
“We played a little better tonight,” Wawasee head coach Steve Coverstone said. “It is the first time many of the girls have played here and the greens gave us some trouble. We have to keep improving because we still have four conference matches next week.”
West Noble Steamrolls Wawasee
West Noble showed no mercy Thursday night, posting an 8-0 boys soccer win in Ligonier. The 1A No. 11 Chargers scored four goals in the first half and another four in the second half. Individual goal scorers for West Noble were not made immediately available.
The Warriors (0-3) are now scoreless in its first three games while allowing 17 goals in those contests.
“No way we should have lost this game by eight goals,” said Wawasee skipper Tom Taylor. “We simply did not come to play. Very disappointed, I know for a fact we should of been a contestant in that game. Moving forward from here, positively.”
Fairfield Dominates Football Contest
Nothing went right for Wawasee in its first freshman football game of the season Thursday night, losing at Fairfield 58-0.
“We need to work hard this week on getting better at our fundamentals. We need to improve our effort, blocking and tackling,” said Wawasee freshman coach Brent Berkeypile.
