The Class 4A No. 7 Seymour volleyball team celebrated Senior Night on Thursday with a 25-11, 25-9, 25-19 win against visiting Columbus North.
The Bull Dogs did not go down without a fight as they held leads in all three sets, but the host Owls were too much in the end.
Before the match, Seymour’s four seniors — Jessica Lucas, Taylor Sutton, Megan Kimbley and Hayden Dailey — were honored, and coach Angie Lucas was presented with a plaque from the IHSAA for her years of service and picking up 500 wins.
With the score tied at 1 in the first set, Sutton served eight straight points as the Owls took control. The Bull Dogs were able to score a few points here and there, but the Owls finished off the set by scoring the final four points.
Seymour took over in the second set, but Columbus North kept it close. The Owls were able to seize control late with several Bull Dog mistakes.
“It was great to get the win here on the home floor tonight,” coach Lucas said. “We came out strong and played aggressive as we did to get ready for next week. In the first two sets was how we looked the other night at Jeffersonville, so I can’t complain much.”
In the third set, the Bull Dogs held leads early, including 10-8 on a service point by Janelle Peters. With the score tied at 12, though, Columbus North committed a passing error, and Seymour took the lead for good. The closest the Bull Dogs (11-20) came was five points.
For Seymour (30-3), Chandler Clark was 17 of 18 in serving with an ace, and Dailey was 24 of 27 in hitting with 12 kills. Also, Lucas had 32 assists, and Sutton had 18 digs.
