Congratulations to the Varsity Volleyball team on their win against Trinity Lutheran High School Wednesday night in straight sets 25-10, 25-8, 25-12.  The Pioneer offense was a force to be reckoned with as Lilly Bivens (31 assists) spread the ball to her hitters to dominate the court. Hanna Mitchell (12 kills), Ali Hornung (9 kills), Maggie Purichia (6 kills), Anna Purichia (6 kills), Marissa Hornung 5 kills, and Courtney Glotzbach (5 kills and 6 blocks) all had hard-hitting performances against the Cougars. The defensive effort of Madison Kruer, Ceci Rush, Grace Hublar, and Megan Flanagan helped keep the ball in the setter’s hands all night long. Emma Kaelin saw some varsity action last night and finished with 4 assists and 2 digs. The Pioneers will travel to Indianapolis this weekend to participate in the Brebeuf Invitational.

The JV Volleyball team pulled out an exciting 3 set victory Wednesday night against Trinity Lutheran with scores of 23-25, 25-21, 15-9.  Anna Purichia played like a beast at the net, notching 20 kills on the night. Laramie Cecil played great in the clutch for the Pioneers, adding 5 kills, and Elle O’Bannon had 2 kills. The outstanding back-row play of Brynna Walthers and Miranda Harley in sets two and three and the incredible serving of Ashlyn Druen helped seal the victory for the Pioneers! The JV is back in action next week against Jeff on Wednesday.

Saint of the Day:  Saint Matthew was a Jew who worked for the Romans as a tax collector. His fellow Jews considered him a traitor, and resented him. The Pharisees viewed him, and all tax collectors, as a sinner. So it was a real shock to hear that Jesus called such a man to be one of his followers. But that’s the kind of thing that Jesus did.

Girls Golf finished 4th in the Corydon Sectional on Saturday, just missing advancing to regional as a team. Ellie Mayberry led the Pioneers with 93, claiming one of the 3 individual spots, and Kennedy Allender tied for the third and final spot with 96. Kennedy was eliminated in the playoff making her 1st alternate. Rounding out the varsity team: Shea Caylor, Alex Henderson, and Reese Bottorff. The team says goodbye to senior team captain Shea Caylor.

The Boys Soccer team came out victorious 2-0 against Oldenburg, who was ranked #2 in class 1A. Providence came out with a 1-0 lead late in the first half with Zach Percocet Perkins netting a goal on an absolute rip from the 3 yard line. The 2nd and final goal came from Matty B on a gorgeous hit from 25 out. After beating 3 people off the dribble Matty cut back to the middle, on the left side of the field, and struck the ball into the right side netting, giving the keeper no chance for a save. Although Providence won 2-0, the score didn’t reflect the game. Providence dominated the entire time, giving very few opportunities for the other team to attack. They will be back in action Tuesday against Madison. Go Blue!

Girls Soccer: Lauren Lindquist scored 13 seconds into the match and was joined in the scoring column by Hannah Hanlon, Avery Stumler and Mia Duggins as the Girls Soccer team posted a 4-2 victory over #6-ranked Oldenburg on Saturday. The team stands at 7-3-1 heading into a varsity-only match at Corydon tonight. Game time 5:00 p.m. Go Blue!

Boys Tennis has won three of its last four matches, defeating formerly district-ranked Batesville, district-ranked Martinsville, and Charlestown. The lone loss was to #21 Columbus North, and the match came down to a tiebreaker at #3 singles. Last Saturday, senior Michael Coyle earned his first varsity win, teaming with Jack Arnson to win at #2 doubles and clinch a 3-2 victory against Martinsville.

The team is 8-4, ranked #25 in the state, and plays Saturday in the Columbus East Invitational.

Congratulations to the Varsity Volleyball team on its late night thrilling victory over Floyd Central 25-17, 25-22, 27-25.  The Dynamic Duo of Marissa and Ali Hornung, both with 16 kills, was ultimately too much for the Highlanders to stop!!  Hanna Mitchell (7 kills) and Courtney Glotzbach, and Maggie Purichia (3 kills) played excellent at the net against a VERY powerful FC offense as they also combined for 7 blocks. The scrappy Pioneer defense of Ali and Marissa Hornjng, Lilly Bivens, Madison Kruer, Ceci Rush and Grace Hublar played awesome in the stretch and helped the Pioneers come back from a 7-point deficit in the third set to win the match. Lilly Bivens registered 38 assists last night in the victory. Congratulations Pioneers! We are proud of you!

The JV Volleyball team lost a heartbreaker in the third set last night with scores of 22-25, 25-22, 14-15.  The JV fought so hard and played one of its best matches of the season.  Leading the way was freshman outside hitter Anna Purichia with 18 kills, freshman Emma Kaelin with 4 kills, 3 aces, and 33 assists, sophomore outside hitter Laramie Cecil with 4 kills and 1 block, sophomore Elle O’Bannon with 3 kills, Helena Stoner with 1 kill, and freshman Lydia Rush with 3 kills.  The Pioneer defense of Brynna Walthers, Kasey Lockard, Claire Culwell, Elyse Kristiansen, Miranda Harley, and Ashly Druen played their best match of the season and tallied 16 digs!!  Congratulations on a great match, ladies. Your hard work is paying off!

The Freshman Volleyball team improved its record to 8-4 last night after taking down the Floyd Central Highlanders in just two sets! The girls played a complete game with strong offense, defense, and serving. The offense was led by Katie Huff with 9 kills and Ashlyn Druen with 16 assists. Libero Morgan Michels also had a great night, making sure no ball hit the floor. The freshman team will be back in action against tough competition this weekend in the LIVT tournament at OVVC.

Girls Soccer notched its sixth shutout in 10 games on Monday night, blanking the Madison Cubs 3-0. Scoring for PHS were Jaqueline Scott, Bailey Barron and Lauren Lindquist. The girls’ record stands 6-3-1 as the team will return home this Saturday vs. Oldenburg Academy. Game time is noon, varsity only. Please come out and support your Lady Pioneers.

Girls Golf defeated Salem and Borden Tuesday at Champions Pointe. Ellie Mayberry (44) and Kennedy Allender (48) led all scores. Rounding out the scoring were Shea Caylor, Alex Henderson and Reese Bottorff. The girls are back in action Saturday for the Corydon Sectional.

Boys Soccer 3 – New Albany 2. If you missed last night’s soccer game, you missed a real heart stopper. Every minute had you sitting on the edge of your seat and screaming for the tenacious soccer team. New Albany scored first on a decent goal to end the half. Providence came out into the 2nd half like absolute warriors. Not sure what happened at half time, but it was obvious they intended to give it their everything to win. The first goal from Providence came rapidly as Alex “Matty B” Lancaster drilled an absolute ripper at the keeper on a free kick. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, one of their players hit it into their own goal… yikes. But wait until you hear about this one… Austin dribbling up the field when he was fouled and put to the ground. The ref blew his whistle and everyone knew what was about to happen… pure greatness. Matty B runs over the ball as a dummy to play the defense… Jake Miller crosses it into the box… Sam Kruer running in.. SAM KRUER WITH THE HEADER!!!! GOALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! Shortly after New Albany had an extremely lucky break away for a decent goal. BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP THE PIONEERS. With the clock running down faster than they hoped, the game finally hit 2 minutes left. The ball was ping ponged through the middle and squirts out into the trusting hands of Grant Stumler. Grant plays a beautiful ball to Austin who plays a perfectly placed through ball to Luke Hesse. You could practically cut the tension in the air with scissors. It’s one on one with the keeper… Luke, putting the team on his back, throws his whole body into the tackle with the keeper, while performing the most accurate shot of his life. The ball rolling into the back of the net with 1:36 left in the game was a triumphant moment for the Pioneers. Sadly, we realized he had been taken out by the keeper on his miraculous play. He was on the ground for what seemed like an eternity to us. Finally, he rose like Lazarus and limped off the field into a thundering of applause and excitement. The game held last night will be one for the books. -Highlights transcribed by Isaac Coker

The Varsity Volleyball team defeated Ky. #9 North Oldham is three close sets last night 25-15, 27-25, 26-24. Marissa Hornung led the Pioneer attack with 18 kills, Courtney Glotzbach was a blocking machine registering 8 blocks, and Lilly Bivens finished with 38 assists.
