Going into their match against the Central Dragons, the Lady Eagles knew that they needed to make a statement after a nail-biting game against Philipsburg. The five set victory over the Mounties was too close for comfort. 

In the first set against the Dragons, the Lady Eagles came out with high energy and quickly took the lead, winning 25-15.

We cleaned up alot of things and were a lot more consistent. What’s even better is that we played well, but that still wasn’t our best. Things are getting better every day”

“The team responded with two good practices after the 5 set match on Thursday night and those improvements could be seen even in the first set,” said Assistant Coach Bob Oberheim.

In the second set the Lady Eagles continued the high energy and took control of the set, ending it with a score of 25-19.

In the third set the Central Dragons didn’t stand a chance. The Lady Eagles gained the lead and didn’t give it up the whole set. The Lady Eagles won the 3rd match 25-17.

“We were more consistent offensively tonight and were more terminal hitting the ball.  We never gave up a big run and created a lot of offensive opportunities by being aggressive.  We need to continue making better decisions hitting the ball and avoiding the ‘silly’ mistakes that great teams don’t make such as being in the net,” said Head Coach Michael Kraft. 

The girls also felt that they had improved from their performance in the season opener.

“I think we got a lot better from Thursday to Tuesday and it showed. We cleaned up alot of things and were a lot more consistent. What’s even better is that we played well, but that still wasn’t our best. Things are getting better every day,” said junior captain Mattie Cherry.
