The Trojans defended their home mat Thursday in the third-annual Knox County Small Schools Invite, racking up 38 points between the middle school and high school ranks to give Centerburg the win over Fredericktown, East Knox and Danville.
When Fredericktown High School senior Hannah Vaughn broke her right hand, just before the start of autumn volleyball season, there was little doubt that she would be back to help her team late in the season as soon as her hand healed.
The Centerburg Trojans were down 32-30 with 8.4 seconds to go, and a deep shot from Kristy Vargo with 4.5 ticks left proved to be the difference to give the Trojans a 33-32 win over the Fredericktown Freddies Wednesday.
After only trailing by three after the first quarter, the Mount Vernon Jackets offense ran into a tough defense that turned into quick points for Watkins Memorial Monday and the Warriors ran away with a 68-37 win.
Saturday morning, while Fredericktown Freddies’ girl’s basketball coach Tim Maceyko was preparing for his team to host the Cardington Pirates (15-1, 12-0 KMAC), his daughter, Allie Maceyko, received a text from Kynlee Edwards.
The Centerburg Trojans and Utica Redskins both competed in the Division III Region 21 dual team tournament Saturday in Centerburg, but both teams were eliminated in the first round against higher-seeded competition.
