PREP VOLLEYBALL: On to the semis

Northridge, Central win quarterfinal matches

WARSAW — The Northridge Raiders and the Elkhart Central Blue Blazers moved on to Saturday’s semifinals in the Class 4A girls volleyball sectional at Warsaw Community High School Thursday night.

Northridge topped the Goshen Redskins 25-7, 25-14, 25-14 in the first game while Central was a 25-16, 25-23, 25-11 winner over Concord in the nightcap.

The sectional continues at 11 a.m. Saturday morning with Northridge (26-7) facing Central (26-3) followed by Warsaw and Elkhart Memorial 30 minutes after the conclusion of the opener. Winners square off for the championship at 7 p.m.

Northridge got an incredible all-around game from senior Morgan Miller, who totaled three aces, 16 setting assists, nine kills and 10 digs.

“Morgan is a six-rotation player,” Northridge coach Jodie Steele said. “She has tons of talent. She can hit, block and pass.”

The Raiders played with a lot of enthusiasm, celebrating and cheering after each point was scored.

“Energy is huge in this sport,” Steele said. “We get excited for hustle plays. There are a lot of ups and downs in the sport.”

Match one was a matchup of the more experienced Raiders and the less experienced Redskins.

“We were nervous and let Northridge get to us,” Goshen coach Kelsey West said. “Northridge is a great team and they are hard to defend.”

The Redskins were more competitive in the third set. Northridge was leading 20-5 before Goshen got the score to 24-10. The Redskins held off eight match points before a serving error gave the final point to the Raiders.

“That was more indicative of how we can play,” West said. “The girls that were on the floor at that point were talking to each other. We need to communicate with each other on the court and we were just too nervous early on to do that. When we don’t talk we don’t move. It’s hard to watch when we don’t talk.”

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
