Congratulations to the Freshmen Volleyball team for remaining UNDEFEATED so far this season by outlasting the valiant effort of the Floyd Central Highlanders last night at the Larkin Center! The frosh came out to a strong first set win with scores 25-20, but could not pull off the second set falling to the Highlanders, 20-25.  But the Pioneers regrouped and finished riding the strong front row play of Nicole Stratford, who pounded 6 kills in the final set to finish off the visiting team 15-11. The freshmen return to action at the LIVT in Louisville this Saturday! Good luck, Ladies!
The JV Volleyball team had an awesome night beating the Highlanders in 2 sets 25-10, 25-22. The strong net play of Lilly Tappel with 11 kills and Makenzie Wagner with 8 kills was too much for the Floyd Central defense! The great serve receive of Camila Adams, Taylor Bansbach, and Mackenzie Murphy really helped keep the team in a great flow offensively. But the story of the night was the outstanding serve effort of the Pioneers. Reese Carver, Taylor Bansbach, Lilly Tappel, and Camila Adama combined for 11 serving aces!!  The Pioneer JV are back in action tonight against Male at 6 p.m in the Larkin Center.
The varsity Pioneers got back on track last night beating FC in 4 sets 13-25, 25-19, 25-19, 25-21.  Ali Hornung had a great night leading the team with 16 kills, 10 digs, and 1 ace. Grace Purichia had a solid night finishing with 8 kills, 2 blocks, 6 digs, 22 assists, and 5 service aces. Anna Purichia helped out with 7 kills, 1 block, and 3 aces, and Emma Kaelin tallied 6 kills, 6 digs, 13 assists, and 1 block. Lydia Rush played well at the net adding 5 kills and 1 block. Susie Grigg led the defense with 14 digs, 4 assists, and 1 ace. Miranda Harley added 7 digs, and Alex Kraft finished with 4 digs and 1 service ace!

Friday Football Recap: Providence vs. Clarksville:
The Pioneers gave up two early touchdowns but stormed back to take the lead before the half. Unfortunately, the ball didn’t bounce our way a few times, and Clarksville was able to pull away and win by a touchdown. The Pioneers gave great effort in all three phases of the game the entire evening. Jeremy Gettelfinger led the way with two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving. David Wall led the Pioneers on defense, and Jaxon Murphy forced a fumble at a critical point in the game. The Pioneers will regroup and take on Charlestown for homecoming this Friday night. We look forward to seeing you there.

Swim Team sign ups: Hi Students, The season is fast approaching, so we are going to have a Swim and Dive team sign up next Wednesday and Thursday after school in front of the Robinson Auditorium outside. I’m expecting everyone back from last year’s team who didn’t graduate, so last year’s team members, if you want to bypass this meeting, that is fine. Also, last year’s team, if you think you will still fit in the same size suit as last year, just let me know because I have your sizes already.  If you want to try on suits for size, you can do that too as I have a sizing kit available.
About our program:  New to swim?  Super!!! A veteran swimmer?  Perfect!!! Our program is encouraging, uplifting and designed to make you successful no matter your skill level. You will be in awesome shape by the end of the season, so for those in fall sports who want to maintain or get in better shape, join swim!  For those that want to be in shape for their spring sports, join swim! If you think, ‘Oh, this can’t be for me I have never swam in my life.’ So what? I have graduates from our program, one in particular, who had never been in a pool as a freshman who became an elite swimmer as a senior. We’ve had senior cross country runners, soccer players, football players join the team and had phenomenal track seasons that spring. And many of these “non-swimmers” scored points in sectionals.
To be successful in life, one has to challenge themselves to be better each day. Check out our program next Wednesday and Thursday. Many thanks, Coach Jim

The Volleyball team came away from Columbus East last night with straight set victories at every level!! Leading the charge in match one was our freshman team who took care of business 25-16, 25-11. The freshmen will play Saturday at Providence against Jasper at 10 a.m. and Carmel around noon!  Come check out our awesome freshmen team!!
The JV match was exciting from start to finish! The Pioneers were able to come from behind in both sets to close out the match against a very strong Columbus East team with scores of 25-13, 25-18. Leading the Pioneers offensively was Camila Adams with 9 kills. Lilly Tappel and Makenzie Wagner both pitched in with 6 kills each, and Reese Carver tallied 3 kills. The strong serving of Camila Adams (3 aces), Taylor Bansbach (2 aces) and Lilly Tappel helped the Pioneers pull ahead for the victory!!  The Pioneer JV team will play Mercy Tuesday night!
The varsity team looked solid last night defeating a good Columbus East squad 25-16, 25-21, 25-17.  Leading the way for the Pioneers was Ali Hornung with 15 kills, 12 digs, and 3 blocks!!!  Anna Purichia added 9 kills, 5 digs, 3 blocks and 2 service aces.  Emma Kaelin had an overall great performance chipping in with 6 kills, 8 digs, 20 assists and 1 ace, while Grace Purichia finished with 6 kills, 7 digs, 17 assists and 2 service aces. Middle Hitter Lydia Rush had a strong night at the net finishing with 4 kills and 3 blocks!! Miranda Harley and Alex Kraft combined for 18 digs and 9 service points!!
