But this wasn’t the only thing on the Lady Eagles’s minds. After taking two hard losses this week the Lady Eagles were looking to redeem themselves against the Penns Valley Rams. The Lady Eagles had fallen to the Rams the last time the two teams had faced off, but knew that they could be beaten. 

From the first point, it was obvious the Lady Eagles were not playing around. The team came out with high energy and a focused drive that hadn’t been seen before. The Eagles remained consistent in serve receive and were making all the defensive moves. A huge asset to the Eagles defense were outside hitters Reagan Irons and Bri Foy who had an impressive combined 22 digs. The Eagles ended the set 25-18 ,but they were only getting warmed up.

This game proved that we are a team that is able to dominate other teams. This has been something we have struggled with in the past against teams that don’t challenge us as much. Knowing that we are capable of playing with that mindset and focus raises the bar for our future games”
