Edgewood sweeps past Stars in 3 sets

ELLETTSVILLE – Edgewood topped Bedford North Lawrence in three sets during high school volleyball action on Monday night.

The Mustangs posted a 25-14, 25-13, 25-14 victory as the Stars fells to 1-3 with their second straight setback.

Carlee Kern paced BNL with 7 kills and 2 blocks. Maddy Bennett and Annie Waggoner added 4 kills each. Waggoner totaled 14 digs and Kern finished with 9.

“Edgewood had a really strong middle (Kaiden Harrington) that was very versatile with her shots that we really just couldn’t stop,” BNL coach Gabrielle Arthur said. “We really struggled to pass today and I think we’re starting to understand we can’t do anything without serve receive and that’s going to be our focus moving forward.

“I think everyone agrees that the scores don’t accurately reflect the effort our team puts in. But I also think everyone agrees we’re going to have to step it up a notch if we want to see more wins moving forward this season because our schedule doesn’t get any easier.

“I thought Carlee and Annie had a great game and a lot of younger girls were able to see some playing time in their first Varsity matches as well. Graycen Todd, Isabelle Harding and Anna Williams stepped up when they had the opportunity.”

Harrington had 15 kills and 5 blocks. Kendal Ash had 7 kills, Aida May had 11 assists and 6 aces, Jenna Brinson had 18 assists and Katie Wilson totaled 15 digs for the Mustangs.

The Stars will host Bloomfield on Tuesday.
