The Troy Middle School Volleyball team took the short trip to Midway to take on the Doniphan West Mustangs. Troy B team was the first to take the court. The Lady Trojans played hard and were able to put together some successful volleys with good serves and returns from Makenna Thomas, Adleigh Popple, and Tillie Keller. Despite their improved performance, they were unable to pull out a win in their 2 matches.
Next to take the court was the A team. The Doniphan West team had a distinct height advantage coming into the match, but the Lady Trojans played hard to keep the matches close. Braelyn Popple, Kenadee Christopher, and Nicole Judd provided solid back row defense against the strong Doniphan West hitters while Harper Whetstine, Alyson Grable, and Cadence Popple made some key plays at the net. Despite their efforts, the Lady Trojans fell to the Mustangs in both sets.
The night concluded with the C team games. The C team showed improvement in their serving and passing and rallied to force 3 matches before Doniphan West came away with the win. Annamaria Root and Jacqueline Jenkins stepped up when their team needed them and made substantial contributions to their team's efforts.
The Lady Trojans A team will be on the road Saturday as they travel to McLouth for a tournament this weekend and hope to seek out a win.
The Troy Trojans Middle School football team traveled to Midway on Thursday, September 16th to clash with the Mustangs.
The offense came out aggressive, scoring multiple touchdowns in the first quarter. Everything was firing on all cylinders. Lane Hall (OL) did an excellent job blocking up front, opening holes for the running backs. Brayson Elrod (QB) and Bransen Elrod (C) came in as a quarterback-center-brother duo and accumulated some yardage.
On defense, the Trojans were stingy, allowing zero points. Kaston Jasper (S) made sure nothing ran behind Troy’s defense. Holden Bowe (DT) and Colton Luedke (DT) stuffed attempted runs up the middle.
The final score was 38-0 in favor of the Trojans. Troy improves their record to 3-0. They host the Centralia Panthers next Thursday (9/23). Game time: 6:30pm.
