University of Indianapolis sophomore, Christy Fulk, who graduated from Northview in 2006, has helped the Jaguars off to an 8-1 record to start the season.

Fulk averages more than a kill per game (1.24 pg.) and also has blocked a shot every other game for a .53 average.

In the Jaguars most recent match, a 3-0 sweep of Oakland City, Fulk had two kills in the victory.

Clay City graduate and Indiana State freshman, Ashley McCullough, saw her first regular season action for the 2007 Sycamores on Saturday.

McCullough saw limited action in one game against Memphis at the Eastern Illinois Pepsi Challenge. ISU dropped a three-game decision to the Tigers, 32-30, 30-16, 30-22.

This season, McCullough has seen time in three different games and has posted two kills for the Sycamores and has assisted on two blocks.

2007 Northview graduate, Brianne Arvin, is a member of the Stephens College volleyball program in Missouri, but no statistics are currently available.

Cross Country

Northview alumni Emily Pugh took to the cross country course for Indiana State in a three-kilometer alumni event for the Sycamores recently.

Pugh came home in 11th place with a time of 12:16.

She'll be an important factor for ISU this season after the Sycamores graduated several key seniors.

Other Wabash Valley runners on the team include Terre Haute North's Kayla Alexander who was third overall in the alumni event, as well as South graduate Adriane Wunderlich who was fifth along with freshman Ariel Hall, a South grad.

South Vermillion graduate Julia Costello is recovering from an injury.

James Grounds of Brazil, Ind. placed sixth overall at the Franklin College Invite for the Vincennes Blazers. The sophomore's time of 27:38 led the Blazers who placed fourth as a team.

Franklin won the boys' meet to edge out Rose-Hulman who had three top-10 finishes.

Football

The Marian Knights officially kicked off the first year of collegiate football over the weekend, dropping a 30-15 decision to the host William Penn Statesmen.

Northview's Jamie Bays showed off the talent that led coach Ted Karras Jr. to name him the starting running back.

Bays carried 11 times for 88 yards, including a 53-yard run in the game. He also caught one pass for seven yards and returned three kickoffs for a total of 56 yards.

Devin Chamberlain, Matt Crooks and Dayne Upperman, all Northview alums, did not see action in the opener.

Offensive lineman Joe Evinger did not see action in last week's opener for the College of the Canyons.

Broc Miller also did not play in Indiana State's football opener against IU.
