The 2021 Volleyball season started off with a bang for Jody Havens and the Mississinewa Lady Indians defeating Eastern(Greentown) 3 sets to 1. Ole Miss battled through adversity throughout the match but with 5 Senior leaders the Indians were able to pull through. “It was nice to the leadership from our girls on the court” said Havens. Defensively Ole Miss found a rhythm which led to the offense heating up as the match went on. “Our goal for tonight was to maintain out intensity from the beginning of the match to the end of it, the girls did a nice job and earned an early win” stated Havens Monday night. “We have plenty to work on in the next two days of practice but I’m proud of tonight’s effort”. Individually Sophie Corey led the Indians with 30 digs, Mia Catey led the Indians with 8 kills followed by Megan Stanley and Carly Bolser with 5. Carly Bolser led way scoring 8 service aces followed by Mackenzie Austin’s 5. Mia Catey had 9 solo blocks along with 3 assist, Jazzy Nicholson led the team in assist with 18.
