Tyrone Out Brawls the Blue Devils

Going into Thursday nights match against Tyrone’s biggest rivalry, the Lady Eagles now knew that they had to jump on them early and get them frustrated. The Lady Eagles did just that, serving a total of 48 service points in all three sets.

In the pink out game, money was raised in honor of breast cancer survivor Victoria Isenberg. The money was raised by selling baked goods, 50/50 tickets, and face tattoos. A serving game was also played to get the crowd excited and rowdy.

It was the first time that we have beaten them and it felt so freaking cool!”
