LINDEN - Slow starts meant the end of the volleyball season for North Montgomery. They never managed to win either of the first two points in any set in a four-set loss to Western Boone in the sectional championship Saturday night, 25-13, 24-26, 25-22, 25-8.
"Our girls have struggled with height at times. But then they came back and they were aggressive again," North Montgomery head coach Jodi Webster said. "I can't fault my team. They fought today."
The Chargers got hands on the ball in an effort to slow Western Boone's high-powered attack down from the start. But for every run the Chargers had, Western Boone had a bigger answer.
"WeBo would go on a lot off a run and we would try to fight back," Webster said. "We just couldn't get our rhythm out there tonight."

Sparks will fly Saturday at North Montgomery as the Chargers and Crawfordsville Athenians meet at volleyball Sectional 25.
The sectional opens with Western Boone and Lebanon Thursday at North Montgomery. North Montgomery is 17-16 and finished 6-1 in the Sagamore Athletic Conference, tying for first with Western Boone and Lebanon. Crawfordsville is 15-15.
"What a cool draw. To draw your county foe, your conference rival," North Montgomery head coach Jodi Webster told The Paper. "You can't get a bigger rivalry coming into the sectional. You're also going to see it in the first game with Boone County in the first match. What a great sectional and what a great atmosphere going on here at North Montgomery."
The Chargers were victorious 3-0 when the teams met at Crawfordsville during the regular season. The win clinched the Montgomery County title for North.
Both schools know that records and previous history is irrelevant when the postseason rolls around.
"We will start tomorrow. North Montgomery's a good team. They have some good players and play good defense. We need to be prepared mentally to have a chance to win Saturday," Crawfordsville head coach Kelly Johnson told The Paper Monday after the team's regular season finale.
Crawfordsville's offense flows through Hannah Hungerford and Kim Hampton, both juniors. Hungerford has 159 kills and a team-high 43 aces on the year.

LINDEN-A volleyball game that ends 3-0 doesn't get much closer than the one between Western Boone and North Montgomery Thursday night. The Sagamore Athletic Conference rivals were evenly match, but Western Boone found a way to get it done each set, 25-18, 27-25, 25-21.
"We knew going in that we were two very similar teams and it could have gone either way," Charger head coach Jodi Webster said. "It could have gone either way. I know if there is a rematch it's going to be a heck of a match."
Western Boone had big runs in each set that hurt the Chargers. Leading 15-13, the Stars made it 20-13 before the Chargers would score again in the first set. In the second set, it North Montgomery led 9-7 before a 4-0 Star run that made it 11-9. A 13-2 run from 5-11 to 18-13 gave Western Boone the momentum they needed in the third set.
"(Getting hands on the ball at the net) kept a lot of plays alive," Webster said.
The Chargers did a lot of things right. The offense was spread out with Lindzy Sabens leading the way with nine kills.

NEW MARKET-It would have been quite the upset. And for a while it looked like it might go that way. But when the gym went quiet at Southmont Thursday night, Western Boone swept the Mounties on the volleyball court. The sets went 25-15, 25-23, 25-6 in Western Boone's favor.
After dropping the opening set, Southmont grabbed an 8-4 lead in the second. The Stars knotted it up at 8-8 but the Mounties stole the momentum again with a big block by Veda Emerson. She had two blocks on the night. The set was back and forth until Western Boone made a final run and ended the upset hopes. The Stars went on a run of 18-1 the close the final set.
"That second game we played really well. To lead Western Boone in itself is a job," head coach Erin Barry. "We just need to put a full night together like that. We were minus a few players on Tuesday and this is a different rotation. We will continue to work on getting them in a set rotation.
Breanna Mason had 12 assists on the night. Abby Bullerdick led the team with six kills with Sammy White right behind her with four. Kaiti Chadd had nine digs to go along with six from Brittany Barrett.
