SELLERSBURG - Lawrenceburg's record 32-win volleyball season ground to a halt in Tuesday night's Class 3A single-game regional at Silver Creek, 3-0.

Host Dragons (23-14), who knocked off perennial regional power Brownstown Central in sectional play, won a close first set 25-19, then jumped all over coach Staci Knigga's Lady Tigers (32-5 final) in a momentum-killing 25-5 second set.

A hotly contested third set saw Silver Creek eke out a 25-20 advantage, earning the right to advance to this Saturday's 3A South Semistate at Jasper.

Dragons are paired with No. 8-ranked Northview (34-3) in one semifinal, with the host Wildcats (26-11) meeting Indianapolis Brebeuf (18-6) in the other.

"I am proud of our team," said Coach Knigga of her EIAC co-champions, winner of their first sectional crown since 2005 the previous weekend.

"We played really well in Set One and we didn't quit in Set Three. Silver Creek is a very good team, so it is hard to be disappointed - knowing what a great season we have had."

BROOKVILLE - What was considered a slam-dunk after Thursday night's shockingly easy 3-0 first-round win over nine-time defending champ Batesville came to pass Saturday in IHSAA Class 3A Sectional 29 volleyball at Franklin County.

Lawrenceburg's Lady Tigers, now 32-4, captured its first sectional championship since 2005 with equally routine wins over South Dearborn (25-7, 25-8, 25-10) in the afternoon and Greensburg (25-20, 25-11, 25-15) in the evening final.

"I was very pleased with how well we played in all three matches of the sectional," said LHS coach Staci Knigga. "Our seniors, Sophia Sandford, Riley Brunner and Paxton Parris. all played extremely well. It was a team effort but we could definitely feel their senior leadership.

"Our team set a goal in November of 2013 to win Sectional 29. Their hard work and dedication this past year has helped us reach our goal."

EVANSVILLE - A game official said it himself during Saturday’s IHSAA girls soccer Class A semistate at Evansville North’s Bundrant Stadium.

“The thing about soccer is that the best team doesn’t always win.”

That proved all too true for Lawrenceburg’s Lady Tigers, who carried the state coaches’ poll’s No. 1 bullseye on their back for a second-straight season heading into the four-team Final Eight event Saturday.

Coach Bill Offutt’s deep and talented Tigers (17-3 final) came through again in their 12 noon (local time) semifinal, exploding for a 3-1 win over previously unbeaten Triton Central (19-1 final) after a tense, scoreless first half.

But fate, and a huge hometown advantage for semistate host No. 4 Evansville Mater Dei (17-4-2) conspired to stop LHS, one win shy of its third bid for a state championship game berth, in the nighttime final.

"I'm still stewing a little bit," said Offutt, contacted Monday. "We just couldn't drop one in. It was a quiet bus ride home for awhile, but the girls started chatting after some time. The thing I liked was that they all had a chance to go home with their parents, but most of them stuck together to take the bus.

UNDERDOG TIGERS START WELL IN 28-13 LOSS AT GUERIN PDF Print E-mail

NOBLESVILLE - Lawrenceburg football, headed to No. 10 Guerin Catholic with images of upset in mind in Friday's Class 3A Sectional 30 opener, couldn't have asked for a better start.

A 17-point underdog going in, coach Ryan Knigga's Tigers (7-3 final), essentially stuffed the hosts' run game, holding the potent Golden Eagles (7-3) to a single first-half touchdown, at 1:10 before halftime.

They also dominated possession, taking the 7-0 lead with 35 seconds left in the first period on a two-yard blast by the game's leading rusher, senior Zach Steuer (30 carries, 140 yards). LHS rattled off 17 plays covering 80 yards on that initial drive, producing five first downs en route to 8-10 third down conversions in the half.

But the chief reasons for the Eagles' second-half rally for a 28-13 win reared up just before halftime.

Guerin QB Matt Labus (12-21 passing, 225 yards), an adept scrambler who throws accurately on the run, hooked up with 6'3" wide receiver Brian Matthews (8 catches, 149 yards) for a 14-yard score, the first of the duo's two TD completions.

TIGER SPIKERS COLLECT 30TH WIN IN SECTIONAL OPENER PDF Print E-mail

BROOKVILLE - Lawrenceburg volleyball marked its 30th win of the season while halting Batesville's nine-year championship streak in Thursday night's IHSAA Class 3A Sectional 29 opener at Franklin County.

Lady Tiger spikers of coach Staci Knigga, amazingly unranked despite their 30-4 record, dispatched Batesville's Lady Bulldogs (17-17 final) with surprising ease in the EIAC rivals' third meeting this season, 25-16, 25-16, 25-12.

Bulldogs, deprived of a shot at their program's 15th all-time sectional title, saw Lawrenceburg advance to Saturday's 11 a.m. semifinal round match against South Dearborn (9-15), a 3-1 winner over Rushville in Thursday's second first-round match.

Tiger spikers are a heavy favorite to capture their first sectional crown since 2005, and fourth in school history, should they keep going to Saturday's 7 p.m. championship round.
