  • Mounties victories over South Putnam
    Monday, September 14, 2015 11:00 PM

    NEW MARKET – The Lady Mounties have been knocking on the door looking for their first win of the season. After taking the Lady Mustangs to five sets last Thursday, and dropping two close games to Frankfort on Saturday in the Noblesville Invitational, Southmont finally got the proverbial monkey off their backs with a25-21, 25-16, 25-17 win over the South Putnam Eagles.

    “Tonight’s win was amazing,” said Mountie head coach Kristin Charles. “We’ve been close, so many times lately, so it was nice to finally finish.”

    The first set was back-and-forth. The Mounties forced an Eagle timeout leading 21-15. They would extend that lead to 23-16 after a Diamond Hutchinson kill, before the Eagles clawed their way back to trail just 23-20 that forced a Mountie timeout. However, Macy Wells kill gave the Mounties set one.

  • Mounties, Cascade duke it out
    Thursday, September 3, 2015 11:55 PM

    “Point goes to the Lady Mounties” booms across South’s gymnasium as the Mounties fight one of their hardest games of the season against the Cascade Cadets.

    The Mounties took the Cadets to four games in a breath-taking series in which there were an innumerable amount of lead-changes and tie scores.

    During the first set, South stayed on Cascade’s heel until double digits when Cascade started pulling away. They had a five point run after their lead of 17-14 which put the Mounties too far behind.

    Heather Miller resigned as head coach of South’s volleyball team on Wednesday.

    “She resigned due to health issues,” athletic director Aaron Charles said. “We completely understand and thank her for the time she was here and definitely want to make sure her health is the number one most important thing.”

    Kristen Charles started as interim coach on Thursday with the Mounties against Covington. Charles coached some JV and varsity at Clinton Central. She will be joining Tim Hutson, the assistant coach, for the rest of the season.

    “Hopefully we can make the transition pretty smooth and benefit the girls,” Aaron Charles said.

    Tuesday, August 25, 2015 11:26 PM

    South volleyball battled it out with the Greencastle Tiger Cubs during the first set of Tuesday’s game.

    After their 25-23 loss in the first, the Mounties fell 25-9 in both the second and third sets.

    “We noticed from the first two games that we needed to cover on the blocks and the kills so we worked on that coverage, which I did see an improvement tonight,” coach Heather Miller said. The two teams remained within four points of each other throughout the entire first set with the Tiger Cubs in the lead for the majority of the game. After two aces by senior Kaiti Chadd, the score tied up at 17-17.

    Chadd ended with nine digs while senior Brittany Barrett gathered seven.

    The Mounties kept it within two points until Greencastle took it away 25-23.

    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.

  • Mounties move on
    Thursday, October 23, 2014 8:06 PM
    VEEDERSBURG -- The Southmont volleyball team completed step one of the postseason journey. Win and advance.

    They did just that with a 3-1 win over Seeger Thursday at Fountain Central in Sectional 38.

    The Mounties started off slow, something they've done frequently this season and something that has cost them. Seeger took advantage and the first set, 25-17. The Patriots went on an 11-0 run at one point that gave them the lead and all the momentum.

    "I told them, we can't start like that," Southmont head coach Erin Barry said. "We have to start from serve one and play consistent throughout the entire match. We can't keep going up and down."

    Southmont showed up in the second set. Things started with an ace from Kendra Conley, followed by a kill by Abby Bullerdick and a block from Veda Emerson. Back to back aces from Kaiti Chadd made it 6-2 and forced a Seeger timeout. Sammy White smacked down a block and a kill out of the break and Southmont went up as far as 10-4. White finished with 14 kills.

    "White played amazing," Barry said. "She was the glue that got everyone going. Her actions got everyone else fired up. It's the best match she's played all year. It was true senior leadership tonight with her. That's for sure."

  • Mounties embrace fresh start in sectional
    Tuesday, October 21, 2014 5:26 PM
    VEEDERSBURG -- Southmont's (7-25) volleyball team didn't have a season for the ages. But their slate is wiped clean tomorrow when they play a 3-22 Seeger team in the 2A volleyball sectional 38 at Fountain Central.

    "We match up well with the other teams in our sectional. We have played all the teams competitively with the exception of Clinton Central," Southmont head coach Erin Barry said.

    Southmont got just one win in the Sagamore Athletic Conference, but they are the only 2A school in the conference.

    "I do think the tough competition in our conference better prepares us for sectionals," Barry told The Paper. "Every team in our conference is extremely good and competes at that higher level of play. Those type of games prepare us for what we will see in the postseason."

    The Mounties will rely on the senior duo of Sammy White and Abby Bullerdick on offense. Bullerdick leads the way with 151 kills and 52 aces. White has 128 kills and 42 aces.

    Tuesday, October 14, 2014 6:39 PM
    NEW MARKET-The Cloverdale Clovers (12-13) traveled to take on the Southmont Mounties (6-24) Tuesday night. The Clovers swept the Mounties.

    Game one was a close contest between the two teams, but Cloverdale won game one and never looked back winning the next two sets in dominating fashion.

    The next game Southmont came out looking for revenge and take tie the match at one game apiece. The Mounties led until Cloverdale tied the game at 7-7. Cloverdale took over the game 9-9 and quickly made the score 15-9. Game two finished 25-13 in favor of the Clovers.
