COLUMBUS, Ind. -- Senior Alex Reid posted a match-best 11 kills and junior Audrey Lewis added eight, but it wasn't enough Thursday (Sept. 30) as Columbus North fell to Columbus East in their annual intra-city volleyball rivalry in the Bill Stearman Athletic Complex.
Senior Mallory Loyd produced a team-best 10 kills for the Class 4A No. 4 Olympians, who improved to 17-2 for the season with the 25-15, 25-15, 25-14 victory. Senior Alicia Gosney chipped in nine kills and junior Heidi Anderson had seven for the winners.
Reid and junior Emily Scheidt each had 13 digs to pace the Columbus North defense, but the East attack was just too powerful on this occasion for the Bull Dogs (12-9).
"We played hard, but (East is) No. 4 in the state and they were about 10 points better than us in each game," Columbus North coach Megan Shaff said. "They played a clean game, and they're deserving of their ranking. But we did some good things, and hopefully we will have the opportunity to play them again. To be the best, you've got to beat the best."
Junior Shelby Holland topped East with 11 digs, and freshman Carly Robertson had nine digs.
East also won the JV and freshman matches. The visitors claimed the JV match 25-20, 25-19, and they took the freshman contest 25-16, 25-9.
Columbus North returns to action Saturday (Oct. 2) in the Richmond Invitational.
