Stars top county foe Zionsville

Climer sets all-time assists mark in win

Dover — The Western Boone volleyball team had not beaten Zionsville since 2008.

That changed Tuesday night when the Stars topped the Eagles 25-13, 25-22, 17-25, 27-25 to improve to 6-1 on the year.

“That felt great,” Western Boone head coach Laura Lawson said. “Last year we were all sophomores and they dominated as seniors and this year the roles were reversed. I give Zionsville credit, they hung in there and played their hearts out.”

The Stars used a 12-0 run in game one and cruised to a 25-13 decision.

Zionsville head coach Dawn Jones said the Eagles struggled with the size of the Stars.

“Both (Casi Neff) and Emily (Harrison) —  we couldn’t get it past them in game one,” Jones said. “The small adjustments we were able to make will help us in the conference when we face some of the bigger girls.”

Game two was much closer.

Western Boone led by slimmest of margins at 19-18 before winning three-straight points to go up 22-18.

The Eagles closed to 22-21, but the Stars scored three of the final four points to win the game.

In game three it was the Eagles that made the late run. With the score tied at 15, Zionsville scored the next four points togo up 19-15.

The Stars got within two, but Zionsville scored the final six points to win the game and keep themselves alive in the match.

“I think that shows that they have the skill, they have the heart and they know what to do,” Jones said. “It is just being consistent. That is going to be the key this year, having that confidence that they are that good.”
