Volleyball swept the competition from Varsity to 7th grade last night. The Lady Indians defeated Marion in three straight sets (25-15, 25-13, 25-15) after the JV squad swept the Giants earlier that evening. Erika Foy had 12 kills, 5 digs, and 1 ace. Taylor Walker, Halle Planck, and Kirsten Lockwood had 5 kills each. Planck added 3 blocks to her stat sheet, and Kenzie Skeens recorded 34 assists and 4 digs.

The RJB Lady Indians hosted CIC opponent Frankton last night. The 8th grade defeated Frankton 2-1 while the 7th grade swept the Eagles 2-0.


Boys Tennis continued Mississinewa’s great evening with a CIC win over Elwood 5-0. Here is the report from Coach Fleming, “The Indians blanked the Panthers in 8 of the 10 sets to extend their record to 4-0 in the conference and 11-4 overall.  Mississinewa will play in the Homestead Invitational, that will include five state-ranked teams, on Saturday.”

#1S: Isaac Torres won 6-0, 6-0
