Another matchup of two ranked teams battled it out Thursday night at Seymour, as Class 4A No. 10 Seymour faced No. 8 New Albany.
After struggling against Columbus East at home a couple of weeks ago, the Owls wanted to make a statement in the Hoosier Hills Conference on Thursday, and they did that with a 20-25, 25-22, 25-15, 21-25, 15-11 win against New Albany.
“It was very intense match with a very good program,” Owls coach Angie Lucas. “They are a good team and always good, and it’s nice to get a win on our home floor. I think later in the season, it’s going to help us come sectional time, knowing we have home-court advantage if we play them again.”
New Albany jumped out to an early lead in the first set and never looked back.
In the second set, Seymour led 3-1 after Hayden Dailey’s kill and Jessica Lucas’ block. New Albany had leads of 4-3 and 12-11, but Seymour’s Olivia Isaacs scored three straight points, including an ace, to put the Owls in front for good.
