MT. CARMEL – Mt. Carmel volleyball coach Beth Bunting said mistakes cost her Lady Aces in Wednesday’s Big 8 Conference match against Jasper.

“We made silly mistakes by letting the ball drop between multiple players which cost us,” Bunting said after the Wildcats left the Hilltop with a 3-0 win by scores of 25-15, 25-14, 15-14. Jasper secured another Big 8 championship, finishing with a perfect 6-0 league mark.

 But it wasn’t always easy against a Mt. Carmel team which at times played very well. “We started off each set very well,” Bunting said. “We stayed with or ahead of Jasper at times by covering on defense and digging up some hard hits.”
