NEW MARKET-When county rivals clash on the volleyball court, it is always competitive. The same was true Tuesday, but Crawfordsville just had too many weapons for Southmont. The Athenians won in three sets, 25-16, 25-15, 25-23.

"I thought overall it was a good match. It feels good to bounce back after a tough week last week. We gained some confidence back," Crawfordsville head coach Kelly Johnson said. "The big thing tonight was that we played well as a team and everyone contributed. I thought the girls did a nice job."

The Athenians were led offensively by Kim Hampton and Hannah Hungerford with seven and five kills, respectively. Hampton added four aces for another big night. Faith Fyffe was the primary set-up option with 12 assists.

For Southmont, Sammy White had six kills and three blocks. Kaiti Chadd made 14 digs.

"We just have a hard time stringing three or four points together. That's how we dig ourselves a hole," Southmont head coach Erin Berry said.

Southmont (4-15, 0-4 Sagamore Athletic Conference) will travel to Turkey Run Thursday. Crawfordsville (13-6, 1-2 SAC) plays host to Fountain Central Thursday.
