  • Warriors top Chargers
    Thursday, August 27, 2015 10:58 PM

    LINDEN - The Lady Chargers hosted Sagamore Conference foe Danville Thursday evening looking to start their Conference season off on the right foot. However, the Warriors proved too much, leaving Charger gym with a 25-11, 25-19, 25-13 win.

    The Warriors led 9-4 in set one before a rotation error on the Chargers cost them a point, and momentum. Danville (9-1, 1-0 SAC) would capitalize scoring 16 of the final 22 points of the set.

    North kept things close in set two, holding a 5-3 lead early and got as close as 17-16, which forced a Warrior timeout. Cortney Kolger had four of her team leading seven kills in the set. Danville scored eight of the next 11 points to win the set 25-19.

  • North's Brook Karle digs defense
    Thursday, November 6, 2014 3:47 PM
    A big hitter can change a volleyball game in a split second.

    Unless someone's there to keep the ball alive before it hits the ground.

    No one affected games more this year than North Montgomery's libero, Brook Karle. She earned this year's honor of being the Montgomery County Volleyball Player of the Year.

    "She came into our program as a freshman and we really needed another passer in the scheme," head coach Jodi Webster said. "She stepped up as a freshman and made a huge contribution at the varsity level. As a sophomore she stepped up to the libero position and really had a natural sense of where the ball was going to be. She was really committed to being the best. Very few of the girls are four year starters. That speaks very highly of her skill."

    Karle, a senior, had 765 service receptions this year and sent 96 percent of them to the setter. She scored 272 service points with a 92 percent serve percentage and had a 91 percent dig percentage.

    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.

  • Stars end Chargers title hopes
    Sunday, October 26, 2014 7:51 PM
    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."

  • 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.

  • North preps for sectional
    Monday, October 20, 2014 6:27 PM
    LINDEN - North Montgomery couldn't have asked for a better chance to tune up for the volleyball sectional. Despite the 4-1 loss, the Chargers saw a 24-8 McCutcheon team that is one of the best in the area. The Mavs were just a little better than the Chargers Monday night, winning 25-20, 16-25, 25-15, 26-24.

    "We just had a talk and we've done all these things to get ready and they need to let the training speak for itself. They got really nervous here at the end of that last set. They just needed to relax and let what they've learned come to fruition," Charger head coach Jodi Webster said. "I take all of these games and see what we can learn from them. This is a great one on comebacks, runs and action. It's a heck of a way to start the prep for the sectional."

    The Chargers made a furious comeback in the first set after being down 13-21. They got it as close as 20-23, but couldn't make the last run.

    The second set was all Chargers. Things started with a big kill from junior Ally French. North stretched things out when seniors Lindzy Sabens and Conner Norman went back-to-back with kills to make it 7-4.

    Senior Brook Karle put things away, serving a 5-0 run that stretched it all the way to 19-9 and the Chargers cruised the rest of the way.

  • Chargers share Sagamore
    Thursday, October 16, 2014 7:39 PM
    LIZTON -- It would be hard to imagine a more fitting way to claim a share of the Sagamore Athletic Conference title than how North Montgomery achieved it Thursday.

    They took to the road and battled for five sets to take a win over Tri-West and earn a share of the conference title with Western Boone and Lebanon. The three teams finished with 6-1 records in the Sagamore.

    "It's a wonderful feeling. It's awesome," North Montgomery head coach Jodi Webster said. "It's been a great week and it's a great way to end this week."

    With things knotted at two sets apiece, the Chargers needed to score just 15 points to win the fifth set and share the conference crown.

    But it wasn't easy.
