High school volleyball
Indians suffer five losses at EC
ALBION - Lawrenceville High School's volleyball team struggled to an 0-5 finish in the Edwards County Invitational tournament Saturday, although the Indians twice forced opponents to a decisive third set in their final two matches of the day.

LHS coach Trinity Britton, whose team fell to 3-28, chose not to make lineup changes, based on recent good outings against Olney and Hutsonville.

"I chose not to make significant changes through the day as we were in a position to win several of the games and could have won any of the final three matches if it were not for a few mental mistakes and key points not going our way."

Britton used mostly a senior lineup throughout the day.

"We have a strong underclassmen group and they were ready to go," she said. "But based on the play of the uppeclassmen and their attitudes I decided to put the games in their hands for this final tournament of their careers."

After dropping their first three matches in straight sets, LHS won the opening game from Wayne City, 26-24. Wayne City rallied, however, and beat LHS 25-22, 18-16 to win.

In the final match of the day the Indians won the first game against Grayville, 27-25, before the Bison came back to win, 25-14, 15-6.

The Indians started with losses to Noble (25-12, 25-12), host Edwards County (25-2, 25-14) and Mount Carmel (25-21, 25-22).

"We played strong matches against Mount Carmel and Wayne City, but lacked the killer instinct needed to capitalize on their mistakes and turn the games in our favor."

McKenzi Kelly had a big day at the net for LHS, totaling 23 kills and eight blocks. Kourtney Osmon and Hannah Johnson added 12 kills apiece, while Taylor Houck contributed 11 and Jenny Uhlik seven.

Johnson led the team with six aces, while Heidi Litherland contributed five and Kelly four. Katy Trinkle led the squad with 23 assists, while Kelly added 20. Litherland paced the Indians with 43 digs.

The Indians will return to Edwards County Tuesday to face the Lions in Little Illini Conference play.
