Looking forward to the Lady Eagles rematch against the Bald Eagle Area, the girls knew it would be a difficult match, but with a much improved team from their last meeting, the girls came in with confidence.

While BEA was able to defeat the Eagles 3-0, each set was close and according to sophomore Mattie Cherry, there were still many positive things for the Lady Eagles to take from the match.

“Even though we lost, we learned a lot about our team. We are ready to play them again in playoffs,” said sophomore Mattie Cherry.

Senior Kylee Gooding led the team with 17 kills and 1 block. Junior Brianna Foy had 8 digs while Bauer had 7 digs. Junior Ebonee Rice had 15 digs and 7 service points while Cherry has 21 assists.

We were really looking forward to the rematch with BEA and it showed as we jumped out to an early lead in the first set 5-0. Although we couldn’t maintain it, that momentum in the first two sets helped us fight in the third set. We are looking forward to seeing them in playoffs”

— Head Coach Bob Oberhiem

The first set started out well for the Lady Eagles, but they eventually dropped a long set 25-18.

“Starting out with a 5 point lead gave us a lot of energy, but BEA brought their defense to the floor and rallied with us for big points,” said sophomore Courtney Williams.

In the second set, the Lady Eagles fought hard again but lost 25-16.

“If we start out strong from the service line and cut down the errors, then we can definitely beat them,” said sophomore Makenna Bauer.

After dropping the first two sets, the girls’ heads were down, but after an encouraging talk from Head Coach Mike Kraft they came out ready to play in the third set.

“We were really looking forward to the rematch with BEA and it showed as we jumped out to an early lead in the first set 5-0. Although we couldn’t maintain it, that momentum in the first two sets helped us fight in the third set. We are looking forward to seeing them in playoffs,” said Head Coach Bob Oberhiem.

Hey! I’m Lucia Isenberg. I’m a sophomore and this is my second year on the Eagle Eye Staff. I enjoy both writing and photography. I am involved in Golden Revolution, Student Council, YAN, POPS Extension, NHS, Sr Quiz league, and swimming. In my (very little) free time, I take wedding pictures, senior portraits, and snap pics of everything in between. I also kayak and listen to Fleetwood Mac and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In my future, I plan to attend Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida to major in Marine Science and minor in Visual Arts for photography. As I attend college, I will also participate in the Coast Guard reserve program. After I graduate,  I will serve a minimum of 4 years and then decide where to go from there. Looking forward, I’m very excited to be a co-editor of the Eagle Eye 2018-19 photo department!
