NEW ALBANY – New Albany remained unbeaten in the Hoosier Hills Conference with a three-set sweep of Bedford North Lawrence during high school volleyball action on Tuesday night.

Alexis Caldwell had 12 kills and 10 digs while powering the Bulldogs (5-2 overall, 2-0 in the HHC) to a 25-18, 25-20, 25-17 triumph.

Tess Owsley and Lauren Neville added 9 kills each, Bree Martin had 4 aces and 13 digs, and Cheyenne Palmer had 10 digs for New Albany.

“It was a frustrating night,” BNL coach Gabrielle Arthur said. “We didn’t play with maximum effort. We didn’t step to the plate like New Albany did. We didn’t dig as deep as we could have and that’s why the scores are close but not what they could have been.”

Annie Waggoner had 6 assists and 5 digs, Myla Bergman added 6 digs, Haley Deckard totaled 6 blocks, 5 kills and 5 digs, Merritt Callahan finished with 6 assists, and Carlee Kern had 5 kills and 6 blocks.

BNL (9-4 overall, 1-2 in the HHC) will visit Class A power Trinity Lutheran on Thursday.
