PORTER TWP. | Bishop Noll’s attack was firing on all cylinders in Saturday’s Class 2A sectional title match against Whiting.

The Warriors totaled 47 kills, led by 19 from Asya Hobbs, as they swept the Oilers 25-12, 25-21, 25-20 to win their first volleyball sectional title since 2007.

“When our hitters are clicking, our offense is running, we stay balanced and we stay in control, I think we’re tough,” Bishop Noll coach David Rodriguez said.

The Warriors (27-9) will host the winner of the North Judson-San Pierre Sectional in regional play Tuesday.

Bishop Noll led 9-8 early in the third set and then went on a run, scoring 15 of the next 21 points to get to match point at 24-14.

The Oilers staved off six match points before Emily Johnson ended the match with a kill. Carissa Jones had five kills in the set for the Warriors.

The two teams traded the lead in the second set, and the Oilers (22-12) had a 20-18 lead after a block from Kaylyn Anderson and a Bishop Noll hitting error.

The Warriors scored seven of the last eight points to claim the set. Carly Cappello and Jones finished off the set with back-to-back kills.

“We knew Whiting would be tough from the start,” Cappello said. “We just all decided that this is what we want, and we want it more so we have to push and know we have to do work on the court.”

Cappello had 14 kills in the match, while Jones finished with nine.

“We tried to run away from Kaylyn (Anderson) a little bit,” Rodriguez said of the offense. “More often than not we did take advantage of our speed and ability to put the ball down.”

Bishop Noll scored the first four points of the match and never looked back in the opening set. The Warriors never let the Oilers get closer than three the rest of the way.

Johnson led the Warriors with 20 assists, and Brittany Anderson added 16. Jones and Hobbs each recorded 16 digs.

Anderson had 14 kills to lead the Oilers. Courtney Blackwell had 17 assists, while Bri Blackwell and Millie Lorasko each had 13 digs.

Whiting beat Hebron 25-18, 25-17, 25-19 to reach the final, while the Warriors swept host Boone Grove 25-13, 25-9, 25-16.
