LEXINGTON — The Tri-Valley girls earned a spot in the final four teams of the Heart of Illinois Conference volleyball tournament Tuesday night with a win against rival Blue Ridge.
MAROA- Blue Ridge dealt with several undesirable conditions Tuesday night in their IHSA sectional semifinal against Monticello, including wind, unknown field type and overall lack of possession. In the end, the Knights came out on top 1-0, but the victory did not come easy.
BLOOMINGTON- Blue Ridge stood strong and came out victorious over Bloomington Central Catholic during the Regional Championship game Saturday morning at the Sale Barn Fields.
The Saints maintained possession and controlled midfield most of the game, but could not get anything through the steadfast defense of Blue Ridge.
LEROY – A dominant defense led the Panthers past the Tremont Turks Friday night in a 6-0 shutout.
Fullback Corbin Litherland rushed for two of his game-high 101 yards on a second quarter touchdown run with 5:23 remaining in the half to give LeRoy the 6-0 lead.
BLOOMINGTON – The third time wasn’t the charm for the Fisher Bunnies in regional play against the Blue Ridge Knights Tuesday at the Sale Barn Fields.
It was the Knights first game in regionals and the third meeting between the two HOIC squads, and the Blue Ridge boys came out of it with a 3-0 shutout.
BLOOMINGTON – Tri-Valley’s Peyton Roop was too much for the Panthers Friday at Illinois Wesleyan in a 28-0 LeRoy loss.
The junior quarterback rushed for 169 yards and passed for 90 while the Panthers could only come up with 102 yards of total offense.
EL PASO – With a senior-laden team, everyone expected the elder Panthers to provide guidance to sectional play.
That, however, was not to be, as freshman Caleb Poindexter took the bull by the horns and shot a team-low 88 to lead LeRoy to second in the regional.
