Multiple Teams · VB peaks to win over Pike


The New Palestine volleyball team pulled away late in the first set Wednesday and never looked back in a 25-21, 25-11, 25-15 home victory over Pike.

The Dragons went on a big run late in a back-and-forth first set to take the win, then scored the first eight points of the second set on Katlyn Keele’s service. In the third, Mia Long served the decisive run to lead the Dragons.

Junior setter Kara Morris had her first career triple-double, with 10 kills, 10 digs and 25 assists. Sophomores Mia Long and Allison Dennemann had double-doubles. Long had 11 kills and 14 digs, and Dennemann 13 kills and 15 digs.

“We had a solid team performance,” Dragon coach Kelli Whitaker said. “Kara Morris had a great night with her first triple double of her career. It was good to get back on track after our loss against Delta last night.”

The Dragons are now 14-2 on the season. They are back in action Thursday at Pendleton Heights, then travel to the Warren Central Invitational on Saturday.
