Tyrone Lady Eagles Stomp The Lady Bison

Going into the Lady Eagles match against the Clearfield Bison, the Lady Eagles knew that needed a win to keep their season win-loss record above .500.

“This match against Clearfield gave us a good opportunity to play some younger girls. Clearfield had a junior dominated team that played competitive ball against us, but they were no match to the talent and determination that our girls showed””

In the first set, the Lady Eagles wanted to make a statement to their league.  The girls did everything in their power to do so and won 25-21.

“We started off slow but we worked really hard to come back and win,” said junior Brianna Foy.

The second set, the Lady Eagles came out strong with a 13-2 lead. Their serves were too hot for the Lady Bison and the Lady Eagles won 25-15.

“Serving is one of our strong suits and I think if we keep serving hard and keep the pressure on the other teams, we can win over a lot of hard teams,” said sophomore Makenna Bauer.

In the third set, the Lady Eagles won over Lady Bison by a score of 25-17 to end the game.

“We need to get better at jumping on teams early like Clearfield,” said sophomore Anna-Lynn Fryer.

When asked how it felt to start her first varsity match, freshman Maecy Tuskovich said “At first I was a little scared but as I played on, I got used to it and had so much fun.”

Senior Kylee Gooding had 13 kills and Foy had 9. Gooding also had 11 service points 8 of them being aces. Junior Logan Johnston had 10 service points and sophomore Miranda Goodman had 6. Sophomore Mattie Cherry then had 28 assists and Tuskovich had 3 digs.

“[I] thought we played very well, but we still need to improve a lot of things in order to terminate teams. I am very excited for what is to come in the rest of our season,” said freshman Carlee Fry.

The Lady Eagles next face the Philipsburg-Osceola Mounties on Thursday night at home with a record of 4-2. JV starts at 6 pm and Varsity at 7 pm.
