COLUMBUS, Ind. - A slow start in Saturday’s IHSAA volleyball Class 4A sectional spelled season-ending loss for East Central volleyball Saturday afternoon.

Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference co-champion Lady Trojans capped a 26-7 season under first-year head coach Cassie Laker, with a 3-0 loss to host Columbus East, 25-11, 25-15, 25-23.

Trojans came alive with their back to the wall in the third game, but proved unable to close out the set with a 23-21 lead, as the Olympians rattled off the final four points to finish the semifinal round match.

Senior Nicole Sandmann led the Lady Trojan attack on 18-21 spikes for seven kills, plus one solo block and four block assists. She added 6-7 defensive digs.

LADY TROJANS CAN'T BUY BREAK IN 2A SOCCER SEMISTATE PDF Print E-mail

EVANSVILLE - The inability to finish goals, despite dominance in possession, didn’t bother East Central’s 22nd-ranked Lady Trojan soccer team in the previous weekend’s Class 2A regional.

Coach Jim Lockwood’s crew (16-3-2 final) just shrugged going into two overtime shootouts, against Bloomington South and New Castle, winning 4-2 on penalty kicks both times.

But EC got caught in Saturday’s first Class 2A semistate appearance since 2010 - losing to unranked Castle (14-6-1), which scored a controversial goal with 1:33 minute left in the second seven-minute overtime period to snatch a 1-0 victory.

"It was just one of those bad breaks," said Lockwood. "Their player kind of pushed off to gain an advantage. At that point, you would have thought a foul would be called. But it didn't happen. Our girls certainly played a great game. I'm biased, but I still believe we were the better team."

GREENWOOD - Turnovers and penalties proved to be a nightmare for Greenwood as the East Central football capitalized for a 41-26 Class 4A Sectional 23 first round win Friday.

Host Woodmen (4-6 final) got on the board first with a 14-play, 76-yard drive.

The only break the home team got on the evening was the one-yard score, resulting from a fumble recovered by runningback Chase VanDyke. But the extra point kick missed and they led 6-0 at 2:33 left in the first quarter.

EC, now 7-3 with its seventh-straight win, came right back with a 10-play, 61-yard drive capped by a 12-yard TD pass from Luke Patton to Austin Bowling with 10:01 left in the half. Sophomore Nick Stidham's kick the Trojans the 7-6 lead.

"I was very pleased with the Greenwood result," said EC coach Justin Roden. "The Woodmen had won seven-straight sectional openers and we have had ours struggles in the past at their place.

JOYFUL TEARS MARK EC GIRLS' 10TH REGIONAL TITLE PDF Print E-mail

ST. LEON - There were as many tears as cheers immediately after East Central’s 10th girls soccer regional championship win Saturday.

Moments after coach Jim Lockwood’s 22nd-ranked Lady Trojans (16-2-2) scored a 1-0 (4-2 PK) overtime shootout thriller over previously unbeaten No. 20 New Castle (18-1), the longtime head coach addressed his team.

Lockwood, who has coached the EC girls to all but one of those 10 semi state berths - including this coming Saturday’s Class 2A Final Eight matchup with unranked Castle (13-5-1) at Evansville Harrison (11 a.m. local time) - spoke to his huddled team as cheers gave way to silence briefly.

“Almost a year ago to the day I was in the hospital (following triple-bypass heart surgery),” Lockwood said. “Several of you (indicating players) came to visit, and I didn’t know who you were or where I was.
