DELAWARE COUNTY PREP ROUNDUP, OCTOBER 18
The eyes of the state of Indiana, if not the nation, will be on New Castle High School Saturday afternoon for an anticipated matchup between Class 4A No. 2 Yorktown and Class 4A No. 1 New Castle in the semifinals of the New Castle Sectional.
Both schools are expected to earn victories Thursday to set up a clash of teams that are regarded as among the best in the nation. New Castle handed Yorktown, last year’s 4A state champion, its only loss in 28 matches this season.
Sectional play began Tuesday as Daleville swept Anderson Prep 25-14, 25-15, 25-10 in a Class A tournament at Cowan. Ava Papai had 9 kills for the Broncos.
Delta outside hitter Molly Hunt was named the MaxPreps/AVCA player of the week for the state of Indiana. She had 101 kills in 16 sets and added 45 digs in the Columbus East Invitational.
Muncie Central learned last week that it will host an IHSAA sectional next March for the first time since 2015. The Fieldhouse has been out of commission the past two seasons as work was done to repair a hole in the roof and other damage caused by a tornado in November 2017.
