Fishers’ eight seniors led the charge Thursday night against visiting Perry Meridian, earning a 4-set victory: 20-25, 25-10, 25-10, 25-23.
Jada Allen, Mikayla Christiansen, Grace Dunnuck, Camryn Haworth, Olivia Lux, Shelby Settles, Jill Snyder and Emily Waldrop earned 59 of the Tigers’ 95 points on the evening, and added 41 digs as well.
Allen led all attackers with 15 kills, and Haworth led all players with 43 assists. Haworth and junior Samantha Perdue each had 10 digs to lead Fishers’ back row.
“The energy of a Senior Night can be helpful and challenging all at the same time, but in the end, the pre-match celebration didn’t cause us to have 12 attack errors in the first set, ” Fishers Head Coach Steven Peek said. “That’s on us, and it’s a bad habit we’ll continue to remedy.
“I’m extremely proud of our team tonight for the way they responded to adversity, and I can’t say enough about our seniors. They have improved our program in lasting ways.”
Perry Meridian led all of the first set, but the Tigers came out firing in the second set, jumping out to a 12-4 lead before extending it further to win by 15.
The Falcons made a defensive change in the third set, but it didn’t pay dividends right away, as Fishers repeated with a 25-10 victory.
That change did start to pay off for the Falcons in the 4th, when Fishers’ attacks got stale and the Tigers’ hitting efficiency dropped from 0.211 to 0.116. Fishers was able to prevail, though, with kills from Waldrop, and then Allen, sealing the deal.
Fishers improves to 5-0 and continues its season at the Providence Invitational this Saturday.
