The Lady Eagles were confident entering into Tuesday’s match against the Bellefonte Red Raiders.

“I was so excited to come out and play Bellefonte, especially because we had beat them in the past. I think because we got the early lead, it helped give us good energy and got us pumped up,” said junior Logan Johnston.

In the first set, the Lady Eagles took care of the Red Raiders 25-18 with a huge lead the entire match.

However, with the talent and desire to get better we hustled and gave Penns Valley everything we had. It was a match we can grow from.”

In the second set, the Lady Eagles came out with that same attitude and won 25-15.

“Combined with our serving and physical energy the game was exhilarating, not only on the court, but on the bench. I felt like Kylee’s energy and skill really helped us to play our best,” said sophomore Anna-Lynn Fryer.

However, in the third set the Lady Eagles fell flat and had no energy. The girls hung along as the Red Raiders won a close set of 25-23.

With a fourth set on the way, the Lady Eagles had to flip the switch and come out with a new attitude. The Lady Eagles pulled out the win with a score of 25-17.

“The team did a good job as a whole getting us into a position to score the last set. Kylee couldn’t have played any better, and she completely dominated,” said sophomore Mattie Cherry.

Kylee Gooding lead the team with an astounding 30 kills and 10 digs. Junior Ebonee Rice has 16 digs and 9 service points. Cherry had 42 assists and 18 service points.

When asked how it felt to get 30 kills, Gooding said “It was very exciting, it was the most I have ever gotten during a game. It was like a burst of adrenaline ran through my body [during] the 4th set.”

“Penns Valley was a perfect example of a young team early in our season. Penns Valley came out with their best and that showed in the first couple sets. However, with the talent and desire to get better we hustled and gave Penns Valley everything we had. It was a match we can grow from,” said Assistant Head Coach Bob Oberheim.

The Lady Eagles next match is home on 9/20 against Huntingdon. JV starts at 6pm and Varsity at 7pm.
