TELL CITY—Kassidie Hayes made 15 kills and served seven aces as Tell City beat Cannelton 25-8, 25-9, 25-13 in volleyball Tuesday.
Logan Flannagan added 10 kills and 13 digs and Emma Kohnert made four kills.
Natalie Peter had 22 assists and Hayes added six.
Flannagan served 10 points, including two aces, and Madison Schuetter added eight points.
Hayes served eight consecutive points, including one clean ace and several others unreturned, as the Marksmen built a 24-7 lead in the second game.
She then served the first four points of the third game, the second with the help of a Flannagan kill.
Cannelton let 25 Tell City hits drop to the floor inbounds.
Cannelton Coach Bridget Bruggeman said miscommunication was partly responsible but also said not having any tall blockers to slow Tell City’s hits “made it hard to dig a lot of them.”
Mikah Hemmings led Cannelton with four digs and Melissa Clausen added three.
Hemmings and Star Bernardi each made three kills and one block.
Cannelton scored several points when Tell City’s back row bumped balls out of bounds.
“Our passing’s still got a lot of improvement to go before sectional time,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “But they know that and we’re working on it.”
Tell City improved to 9-9 while Cannelton fell to 2-13.
Tell City will host Vin-cennes Lincoln and Mount Vernon Saturday at 10 a.m.
Cannelton will host Medora Friday at 6 p.m.

Cannelton lost a home match to Rock Creek 25-18, 25-17, 25-12 Friday.
“We had the lead at the beginning of the first and second sets, but made basic passing errors that really changed the game,” said Bruggeman.
Still she “was very pleased with our overall teamwork. Errors are going to be made—we just have to stay positive and keep working.”
Hemmings made four kills and two blocks in that match. Bernardi and Jordyn Vogt each added three kills and Nicole Harris had three assists.
Vogt served three aces. Hemmings and Melissa Clausen each made two digs.
