Floyd Central lost a 25-19, 22-25, 21-25, 25-22, 14-16 decision to the No. 1 ranked Elkhart Memorial squad Saturday at the Class 4A volleyball state finals at Yorktown High School.
The No. 3 ranked Lady Highlanders led the deciding game 10-4, but Elkhart Memorial rallied in the fifth game to take the win.
The Lady Highlanders led 14-11 in the fifth game when they were serving, but it wasn’t enough to take the victory.
This was the third straight year the squad from Floyd Central was defeated in the semi finals of the Class 4A state finals.
Lady Highlanders’ coach Bart Powell thought that the match got away from his team when they led 10-4 in the fifth game. Powell noted that Floyd didn’t run their usual offense a few times immediately after that and lost the momentum.
The championship game was won by No. 2 ranked Muncie Central, after they swept Elkhart Memorial 25-19, 25-23, 25-16.
Floyd Central’s Lady Highlanders close out their season 35-4.
