    After having been defeated by Kentucky’s no. 1 volleyball team (Assumption) the night before across the river, Floyd Central coach Bart Powell was wondering how his Lady Highlanders would respond to their first loss of the season when visiting Silver Creek. The Floyd girls have been ranked no. 1 most of the season, and were 12-0 headed into the game at Assumption.
    The Lady Highlanders responded to the challenge with a 25-13, 25-7, 25-14 sweep of the Lady Dragons. Floyd Central now stands at 13-1.
    Referring to the week just completed, Powell said it had been “a little bit up and a little bit down.”
    He added, “Sometimes when we’re playing, I don’t think we’re playing as well as we can. It was good to see us rebound tonight.”
    Assumption was not only the top ranked volleyball team in Kentucky, but they were ranked 19th in the nation in some polls. Floyd Central has been ranked in the top 30 nationally themselves.
    Powell attributes the win to taking care of the ball.
    “We had a lot of good ball control all night,” he said.
    Besides, in game 2, Floyd had eight aces, and Powell said that from a serving standpoint, “we controlled that game.”
    Melanie Stutsman had 25 assists in the match, and Camry Hinton added 5 kills. Allison Sims added 5 aces, with 3 of them in the middle game.

    North Harrison’s boys’ golf team defeated Eastern 3-2 in a match last week, and as far as North Harrison Coach Bart Bigham can recall, it’s been a while since his team has won over Eastern.
    “It’s the first time in a while that we’ve beaten them,” Bigham said. “They’ve pretty much dominated us in the last few years.”
    It was the no. 3 singles and the two doubles teams that saved North Harrison.
    T. J. Carver def. Eastern’s Wayne Collard 6-7, 7-6, 6-4 at the third singles spot, while at no. 1 doubles, Alec Dones and Bryce Nowak def. Eastern’s duo of Terrance Chastain and Josiah Watters, 6-2, 7-5. In the no. 2 doubles position, North’s pair of Dakota Bosler and Lincoln Jones def. Eastern’s Drew Logue and Matt Pickerell, 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.
    At the no. 1 singles spot, Eastern’s Michael Doebler def. North Harrison’s Sean Drury, 6-0, 6-1.
    At the no. 2 singles spot, Jayben Temple of Eastern def. North’s Jacob Outcalt, 6-4, 6-1.

    In a big Hoosier Hills Conference (HHC) win Friday night, the Floyd Central Highlanders used a tight defense to defeat the Seymour Owls 37-10.
    They did this without the services of senior quarterback Max Guenther, too.
    Floyd Central also improved their overall record to 4-0, with a HHC slate of 2-0. They are of course also undefeated in the new Ron Weigleb Stadium.
    The Highlanders got on board for the first time in the game with a 35-yard field goal from Jason VanBuren at the 4:24 mark in the 1st quarter.
    On the ensuing possession by Seymour, the Owls committed a fumble, and Floyd Central recovered the ball and commenced a drive by the Highlanders that resulted in a touchdown by Jeffrey Thompson at the 8:46 mark in the 2nd quarter.
