With three region volleyball players and a local coach, the North pushed the large school IHSGCA all-star volleyball match to three games before falling as the South swept the three match series.

The Class 3A/4A match, led by Bishop Noll coach Dave Rodriguez and with Crown Point trio Courtney Covaciu, Meagan Fajman and Abby Kvachkoff, lost in three games, 28-26, 25-22, 25-14.

The Class 1A/2A match, with Bishop Noll's Asya Hobbs and Whiting's Kaylyn Anderson, lost 25-20, 25-21.

"That was some outstanding volleyball," Rodriguez said. "Those girls can really play. They picked up balls that I had not seen. It was like coaching college players.

"I think (the 3A/4A team) looked pretty fluid, and I was going to get that with those kids. I watched the 1A/2A game and they came out and in the first 10 points they weren't sure who was right-back, who was outside hitter, playing middle. They had some versatile interchangeable parts. They had a good plan, but the kids weren't on the same page for the first 10 points. When my team when out there, I said, 'Here is what you're doing, here is who is going where, let's start strong.'"

Rodriguez said that each of the Crown Point players in the Class 3A/4A match played in the second game and picked up two kills each.

In the smaller class match, Hobbs had a kill with two blocks and Kaylyn Anderson made five kills.

The North Juniors, with Bishop Noll's Carly Cappello and Crown Point setter Alyssa Kvarta on the roster, also lost in two games to the South.
