Thursday NKY sports round-up: Campbell County takes down Brossart in volleyball battle

More by....

The two in-town rival volleyball teams already had one tight battle less than a week ago at the Highlands Cake Classic.

This battle came for the second seed in the 37th District Tournament in a few weeks at Scott with the next one coming for the right to move on in the postseason. The Campbell County Camels (8-14) earned that second seed with a 3-2 (25-23, 24-26, 19-25, 25-22, 15-12) win over the host Bishop Brossart Mustangs (17-12).

Junior middle blocker Emma Manser led the Camels with 25 kills and junior outside hitter/defensive specialist Ella Thorwarth had 26 digs. Manser hit her 500th career kill and Thorwarth her 500th career dig.

Campbell County had 53 kills, five aces, 50 assists, 133 digs and 10 total blocks. Junior middle blocker Lexi Scharold added 23 kills. Sophomore A lon McIntyre had two aces and a team-high 28 digs. Junior setter Ava Crowl had 18 assists and four blocks. Freshman setter/opposite hitter Hope Hamilton had 31 assists and 11 digs. Seniors Ashlyn Niemeier and Bailey Beiting had 18 and 10 digs respectively.

“I think we just did a good job of picking each other up and focusing on what was working, what wasn’t working and how we can change that better as a team,” Crowl said. “I think we got in our heads at first. Then after a while, we saw their tendencies then we started to pick it up on our side.”

Bishop Brossart had 41 kills, seven blocks, 44 assists, 108 digs and nine aces. Senior setter Savannah Seiter had 33 assists and 10 digs. Junior libero Maddie Kremer had 41 digs and two aces and sophomore Kate Neltner had 16 digs and four aces. Senior Ava Thomas had 17 digs and four assisted blocks. Junior Kayla Hesse had 14 digs and seven kills with sophomore Corrine Blackburn recording 20 kills and four blocks. Sophomore Kate Neltner added 15 digs and four aces.
