GRIFFITH | On a big night for everyone involved, Highland's Alexis Jordan credits the air of energy for giving her team that little bit extra.

The Trojans were able to overcome Northwest Crossroads Conference rival Griffith 25-22, 22-25, 25-22, 16-25, 15-12, Tuesday night in the Dig Pink match for both schools to promote the fight against breast cancer.

"It was a big night," Jordan said. "They had a big crowd and so did we. We just really fed off of each other's energy. It really kept us going. It was pretty challenging back and forth but I'm really glad we ended up on top."

Jordan recorded 10 kills and was 12-16 setting. She also had 16 digs for the Trojans on numerous attacks by Griffith's Kelsey Bonewits. The entire match was back and forth with the Trojans taking the first and third sets and the Panthers capturing the second and fourth sets. That set the stage for the Trojans winning fifth set by three points.

"We went four with them last time and five with them this time," Highland coach Rachel Paplomatas said. "It just came down to serving errors and that's what won the game for us tonight."

Griffith's Bonewits had a 15-kill game to put her atop the Panthers record books.

"I'll give credit to Highland," Griffith coach Kathy Dilbeck said. "They dug our big middle hitter Kelsey like crazy. But the major difference in that game was the serves. We missed four serves in the fifth game and you have to be flawless in a fifth game."

Highland's Allison Jorsch was 19-of-20 serving while teammate Brooke Fowler was 19-of-26 setting. Griffith's Regina Hope finished the match with 21 assists while Lindsey Sopetti was 18-of-20 serving.

"We're definitely improving day-to-day," Jordan said of the Trojans. "We're improving right now and I think we're going to have something to give everyone in sectionals."
