  • Athenians fall to Red Devils
    Thursday, September 10, 2015 10:53 PM

    The game of volleyball is all about momentum and sustaining rallies. After falling behind 2-0 to visiting West Lafayette (8-3, 1-0 Hoosier), Crawfordsville got some momentum and earned a hard fought 25-22 win in set three.

    They carried that momentum to fourth, as they were one point away from sending the match to a fifth and final set, before West Lafayette caught fire, scoring the last nine points of the match to pull off a 25-21, 25-16, 22-25, 26-24 win.

    The Athenians were able to keep things tight throughout the first set with neither team leading by more than five points.

    Crawfordsville met Attica for the second time in two weeks Thursday.

    After disposing of the Red Ramblers 25-11, 25-5, on Aug. 22 to help them claim the North Putnam Invitational, the Athenians again swept their visitors, 25-14, 25-16, and 25-18.

    After leading 18-12 midway through the first set, Crawfordsville scored seven of the final nine points for the win.


    Attica kept things interesting in set two. They held a slim 5-4 lead before Caroline Schueren recorded one of her seven kills on the night to knot things up at five. Big sister, Paige, would record one of her four aces to give the Athenians a 7-5 lead.

    Joining Brook Karle on the All-County Volleyball first team from North Montgomery are Lindzy Sabens, Ally French and Cortney Kolger.

    Sabens, a senior, was a Player of the Year candidate. Against county schools, she had 12 service points, 14 digs, 13 receptions with no errors and 17 kills.

    "'Sparky' is a total player," North Montgomery head coach Jodi Webster said of Sabens. "Her dynamic court personality and strong work ethic inspired the Chargers. Her ability to attack from anywhere on the court made her a force to be reckoned with."

    Kolger and French are both juniors. Kolger had 15 kills, 20 digs, 21 service points and 25 receptions in county action. She was third on the team overall with 221 kills, behind Sabens and French. French finished the year with 223 kills, 16 less than Sabens for the team lead. She had 16 kills in county play.

    From Crawfordsville, Kim Hampton and Lacey Garrett were first team selections. Hampton did it all for the Athenians. She led the team with 226 kills and 50 blocks and was second with 37 aces and 274 digs. Garrett played Libero for the Athenians and was a Player of the Year Candidate for her leadership on the court and defensive prowess. She led the team with 458 digs and 561 service receptions. She only made 26 receiving errors all season, putting her serve receive success at 95.5 percent.

    Abby Bullerdick was the lone first team selection for Southmont. She played every position for Southmont, including setter when needed. She finished the year with 168 kills and 58 aces to lead the team. She was second on the team with 247 digs.

  • Chargers bump CHS
    Sunday, October 26, 2014 7:21 PM
    LINDEN -- The volleyball season came to an end for Crawfordsville Saturday in the sectional semifinal thanks to North Montgomery. The Chargers beat the Athenians in four sets, 25-19, 9-25, 25-19, 25-17, to advance to Saturday night's sectional championship against Western Boone. The Stars went on to win the sectional in four sets.

    "It was well played by both teams," Crawfordsville head coach Kelly Johnson said. "I'm so proud of the girls. I hate it for the seniors. It breaks their heart and it breaks my heart for them. Our aggressiveness was there today. We wanted to win today and we proved that with our effort. Can't say enough for our girls."

    Between the Montgomery County rivals, it was a battle at the net. Ally French, Cortney Kolger and Lindzy Sabens came out swinging for North Montgomery and Kim Hampton and Mackie Edwards did their best to turn them back at the net.

    "As long as we kept swinging, that was a big thing for us," North Montgomery head coach Jodi Webster said. "It was an exciting time this morning and it's been carrying through this whole week."

  • North, CHS set for clash
    Tuesday, October 21, 2014 5:28 PM
    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.

  • Gophers steal Senior Night celebration
    Monday, October 20, 2014 7:03 PM
    The Crawfordsville Volleyball team played host to Clinton Prairie on Monday evening to celebrate senior night. However, it would be the Gophers who celebrated, winning the match 3-1.

    "It's tough for our seniors to lose on senior night," said Coach Kelly Johnson. "We need to bring fire and aggressiveness every time out. We are capable of winning 100 percent of the time, but we must put in the effort."

    Crawfordsville would win the first set 25-23, but not without having to show some grit. Trailing 17-12, Coach Johnson called time-out. The Athenians would respond, winning the next 6-points, to lead 18-17. Hannah Hungerford recorded two aces, and Emily Cullen recorded a kill to allow the Athenians to close it out.

    Clinton Prairie would win the second set 25-22. Mackie Edwards picked up two of her three blocks during the set.

    The third set was the turning point. Trailing 21-18, and coming out of a time-out, the Athenians grabbed the next two-points to pull within one, 21-20. However, the Gophers would win the next four, and the set 25-20.

    There were moments of promise, but the consistency was lacking for the Crawfordsville volleyball team in a 3-1 loss to Tri-West Monday night.

    "Tri-West has some nice hitters. I knew they were going to be some pretty tough competition for us," Crawfordsville head coach Kelly Johnson said. "We are still trying to work on the mental aspect of the game. The gym was quiet tonight, but we have to be the ones to play well enough to get the gym excited. This is one of those growing pains."

    The Athenians were competitive in both of the first two sets, but had to play catch-up after slow starts. They dropped both of the first two sets, 25-16, 25-22.
