Sonny Duncan and Jeff Young earned offensive and defensive awards from Haskell's football coaches following Monday's 25-15 loss to Ottawa's junior varsity.

Duncan, a sophomore wide receiver from Peridot, Ariz., had five catches for 116 yards, including two for touchdowns. Young, a sophomore defensive back from Morris, Okla., had two interceptions and was credited with two pass break-ups and 10 tackles.

Volleyball: Haskell hasn't won in six matches this season, but the Fightin' Indians are showing improvement.

On Monday, the Indians bowed at home to junior varsity teams from Baker and Ottawa universities. Baker won, 15-5 and 15-8.

HINU coach Judith Gipp said the squad really began to gel during the Ottawa game.

"Their passing and blocking really started to click as they become more familiar with each other on the court," Gipp said.

Haskell won the first game 15-8 over the Braves' jayvees, but Ottawa rallied for 15-7 and 15-3 wins to capture the match.

Becky Bird, Amy Murphy and Melissa Johnson were named the team's Big Hitters during the Baker match.

Against Ottawa, Gwen Black was led the team with four aces and scored on 12 of

16 serves.

The Indians will be off until Sept. 30 when they'll travel to Kansas City Longview.

Cross Country: HINU's teams had the weekend off and will continue an every-other-weekend schedule for the remainder of the season, according to coach Joe Bointy.

"We are a young team and by running fewer meets I hope that we can avoid injuries and keep the team's spirit high," Bointy said.

On Saturday, they'll travel to the Tabor Invitational in Hillsboro.

Golf: Donny Manny is HINU's only returnee from last year's team that made the trip to nationals during the summer, but he has some talented company.
