Wildcats stop Eagles in 4

Indianapolis — The ninth-ranked Zionsville boys volleyball team had one of its toughest tests of the season Thursday, when they traveled to face sixth-ranked Lawrence North.

The Eagles hung as close as they could, but ultimately lost 25-15, 25-19, 26-28, 25-16 to fall to 8-7 on the year.

“We were happy to come in and take a set,” Zionsville head coach Rob McEwan said. “They are a tough team; they are ranked ahead of us right now. They played tough. We do have a chance to see them again in the tournament and our guys are looking forward to that opportunity.”

The Eagles played the first set without many of their regulars and fell behind 21-9. They got as close as nine, but lost the set.

The regulars were back in set two, but again the Eagles fell behind — this time 16-8.

The Eagles got within five at 20-15 on a kill by Jack Townsend and again at 23-18 on a kill by Garrett Linville, but could get no closer.

“They were serving aggressive and hitting hard,” McEwan said. “Our guys were a little rusty. I made a coaches decision to play a couple of different players in the first set, and when our normal starters came back, it took them a little while to get loosened up.”

The Eagles put it together in set three.

Leading 17-14, Zionsville pushed its lead in the set to five on back-to-back kills by Carson Kennedy.

But Lawrence North battled back, winning seven of nine points to tie the set at 22.
