BROOKVILLE – The No. 5 seed Arcanum Lady Trojans easily defeated the No. No. 12 seed Houston Lady Wildcats 3-0 in OHSAA DIII first round tournament action.

“Very happy with the win,” said Arcanum coach Macy O’Dell. “We talked all week – we can’t just go in and think we have them beat, we have to go in and play hard every set and get the ‘W’.”

Arcanum took a slim 8-6 lead in the opening set before going on a 5-0 run to lead 13-6 and close out with a double digit 25-15 first set win.

The Lady Trojans jumped out to a 5-0 second set advantage pushing their leads to 9-1 and 18-8 while using 7-unanswered points to take a 2-0 lead with a lopsided 25-8 second set win.

Arcanum opened third set play with a 4-0 lead and hung around for a 25-17 win to advance in tournament play.

“I thought everybody played good,” Coach O’Dell noted. “We just had some silly mistakes and they were having fun which I like but we just have to clean it up to keep winning.”

Next up for the Lady Trojans; the No. 13 seed Dixie Lady Greyhounds.

“We played good and that’s all that matters,” said O’Dell. “We had those silly errors – but back Saturday.”

The Lady Trojans return to Brookville High School Saturday, October 19 to take on Dixie in second round tournament play with an 11 a.m. start time.
