ISMS 7th-grade Lady Eagles prep for the end

September 19, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Indian Springs Middle School’s seventh-grade Lady Eagle volleyball squad is preparing for the remainder of its season.

The Lady Eagles grabbed their first win Sept. 12 against East Noble, but fell to county-rival Whitko Monday night.

Against Whitko, ISMS Coach Melissa Alexander said the team was caught off-guard in the beginning.

“We were asleep on the court for the first game,” Alexander said.

The Lady Eagles fell 25-13 in game one. In game two, ISMS rallied from a 7-1 deficit to nearly tie the score, but fell 25-19 in the end.

Wildcats fall to Squires

SOUTH WHITLEY — Whitko’s boys soccer team lost a narrow contest to visiting Manchester Wednesday.

The Wildcats dropped a 1-0 contest to the Squires in a match that Coach Jason Ehrman said showed how far his team has come.

“They’re a great team,” he said. “Just to compete with them, from where we started, is great.”

The one goal came with just under 15 minutes left to play in a somewhat fluky situation. Manchester scored on a throw-in when Whitko’s goalkeeper, Jacob Helton, had the ball slip out of his hands for the score.

Lady Wildcat soccer ties Manchester

September 19, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — Big defensive efforts and excellent goalkeeper play forced a 0-0 tie between Whitko and Manchester Wednesday.

Whitko Girls Head Soccer Coach Gary Sims said he was surprised, and that it could have been a different result.

“It was a shock to me because of how we played,” he said. “They controlled the ball the whole game. It seemed like we only played for about five minutes at a time.”

One difficulty for the Lady Wildcats was that career-leading scorer Ellyana Blue was focused on by the Lady Squires.
