September 17, 2012Columbus North High School
NEW ALBANY, Ind. -- Sophomore Janelle Peters knocked down 29 kills over four matches Saturday (Sept. 15), leading the Columbus North volleyball team to a 2-2 record and fifth-place finish in the New Albany Invitational.
Junior Devon Roese and sophomore Karen Wildemann each added six aces during the day for the Bull Dogs, who moved their season record to 5-13 in the eight-team event.
New Albany defeated Columbus North 14-25, 25-13, 25-11 in the opener, and Jasper followed with a 26-24, 25-15 victory over the Bull Dogs. However, CN rebounded to rally past Jeffersonville 24-26, 25-15, 25-23 and the Bull Dogs knocked off Castle 25-13, 25-23 in the cross-pool playoff.
Senior Quin Shoultz contributed 87 assists for the day, while sophomore Alexa Pelley notched a team-best 40 digs. Sophomore Makinsey Summa was solid on front-line defense with five block assists.
"Quin set all weekend for us, working through her thumb pain," CN coach Caitlin Greiner said. "Janelle and Karen did a great job on the outside, as well as hustling in the back row. Makinsey Summa played consistently all day. Alexa Pelley stepped up her defense and serve reception, which allowed Quin to run an offense.
"When we played together as a team, we had success. We struggled when we did not play together. Overall I was pleased with our play. It was a very long day, and the girls did a good job pushing through until the end."
The Columbus North JV went 0-3 in the Roncalli tournament. CN fell to Roncalli 25-4, 25-11, to Cathedral 25-15, 25-12 and to Seymour 25-8, 25-18.
The CN freshman team went 1-3 in the Whiteland tournament. The Bull Dogs lost to Columbus East 15-6, 15-12, defeated Brown County 18-16, 15-10, lost to Bloomington North 15-12, 15-10 and lost to Jennings County 15-7, 17-15.
Columbus North returns to action at 7 p.m. Thursday (Sept. 20) when it hosts Martinsville.
