It was a busy day for WIC volleyball teams Saturday as Cloverdale, South Putnam and North Putnam were all active this weekend.

The Cloverdale volleyball ball team invited two WIC rivals to the court Saturday as the three teams took part in a day of volleyball.

Cloverdale took on Edgewood first and fell in four games.

I see a little bit more improvement with each match," CHS coach Kathy Moore said. "I'm seeing some good things. There are some execution things that we need to work out, like picking up on the small things in matches; who covers where. That sort of thing."

CHS earned the win in the second game 25-17 but were unable to complete the comeback in the fourth and final game, losing 25-23.

Moore has stressed consistency to her team this young season as Cloverdale has had a tough time earning wins. She said players are working together to help each other find their places on the Clover team.

"I've got five seniors and they are all trying to find their niche on the team as far as what they can contribute," Moore said. "We'll get there. This year they are just trying to find what their strength is and what they can contribute as a leader."

Cloverdale's players also played tough against Brown County but were unable to come away with the win. The Clovers were competitive in each game losing 25-22, 25-17 and 25-22.

Moore said that one of the main things to work on is communication.

"It's always a point of emphasis," Moore said. "Communication is everything in volleyball because you have a small court. If you don't have it things don't go well."

South Putnam played host to several schools at the Eagle invitational but did not fare well, as North Central earned the top place going undefeated in the Tournament.

South Putnam fell to North Central 25-8 and 25-10.

No other reults were available from the Eagle Invite at the time of press.

North Putnam was able to earn its first volleyball win against Mooresville, winning in two games.

In the first game North Putnam took the close one 25-23 and then followed that win with a 25-18 win. The victory puts the Lady Cougars at 1-2 in the season with its next match at Tri-West on Tuesday.

South Putnam's next game will be on the road at South Vermillion Tuesday while Cloverdale will play South Vermillion at home Monday.

  • North's record is 2-2, not 1-2. They won 2 games on Saturday, lost 1 and lost to Riverton Parke last week.
