Conference rival Scecina too much for Triton Central in 2A volleyball sectional championship

There's no shaking the disappointment left by a sectional championship loss. 


Triton Central volleyball coach Ray Basile hopes his team feels pride, too.


At Eastern Hancock, Triton Central was eliminated by ICC rival Indianapolis Scecina in four games in the 2A sectional championship, 25-19, 15-25, 25-23, 25-20.



Basile says there's no reason to hang your head if your a Triton Central Tiger.



Scecina (28-5) was the undefeated Indiana Crossroads Conference champion this season but needed all five sets to win at Fairland on September 27.


This time, the Crusaders were able to mount runs of consecutive points to build leads.  Basile said that left the Tigers trying to respond.



Basile says both teams played better than they did in the regular season meeting.



TC seniors Kaitlin Bramlett and Maddy Brown each recorded double digit kills with 12 and 11,  respectively. Bramlett added 16 digs and two blocks.  Brown contributed 11 digs to go along with three blocks.


Junior Kate Isley had 27 assists and 17 digs for the Tigers.


Sophomore McKenzie Jett was also in double figures in the digs category with 13.


Triton Central finished the season with a 20-10 record.


Scecina will play Park Tudor in a 2A regional semifinal at Cascade on Saturday.
