SHELBYVILLE, Ind. – Junior Maddy Sebahar set a school record for digs in a match Thursday evening (Aug. 17), keying the Columbus North volleyball team to a hard-fought 3-2 victory at Shelbyville.
Sebahar, the team’s libero, produced 41 digs while classmate Agustina Fainguersch tallied 20 kills, 20 digs and three blocks as the Bull Dogs improved to 2-0 with the 22-25, 25-22, 25-23, 23-25, 15-12 decision.
Sebahar’s back-row effort broke a mark of 31 digs set last season by then-senior Mackenzie Rooks against Brownstown Central.
“Maddy gave us a big lift in intensity in the back row, and Aguie was definitely our go-to hitter,” CN coach Caitlin Greiner said. “We pulled out a win but still have a lot of improvements to make. At times we put a lot of aggressive pressure on them, but need to work on eliminating our unforced errors.
“Shelbyville was a very scrappy team, and that gave us a bit of trouble.”
Sophomore Emma Tynan added eight kills, 11 digs and two aces, while junior Lauryn James and sophomore Gabby Genth each notched seven kills and four blocks.
Junior setter Lily Meyercord provided six kills, 43 assists, 12 digs and four aces. Senior Katie McAninch tallied five kills, while junior Madi Beck produced 10 digs and sophomore Carley Finke had nine digs. Junior Sophie McKinney chipped in three aces.
At the JV level, Columbus North claimed a 25-14, 25-15 victory to move to 2-0.
The Columbus North freshman team opens its season on Saturday (Aug. 19) when it competes in the Bloomington South Invitational – against Bloomington South at 9 a.m., Bloomington North about 10:30 a.m. and Brownstown Central about noon.
All three teams host Bloomington South on Tuesday (Aug. 22). JV and freshman matches begin about 6 p.m., and the varsity follows the JV about 7 p.m.
