Last night the 8th grade volleyball team traveled to Shelby for the semi-finals and finals of the WMC tournament. The lady Eagles defeated Whitehall in the semi-finals 25 – 22 and 25 -13 and moved on to play a very tough Ravenna team. The lady Eagles once again played their hearts out. As a team they served over 90%, had more digs and defensive plays then our statistician could count, and ran a flawless offense by pounding the volleyballs at the Dawgs to secure a CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP! The lady Eagles beat the Bulldogs 25-22 and 25-15.
Congratulations to the team: Emma Blackburn, Emma Fri, Riann Fri, Alivia Harger, Leah Lowry, Stephanie Mueller, Jayde Norton, Hayden Ruel, Jillian Rusco, Soley Seewald, Madison Smith, Kyla Stewart, Jenna Stovall, McKenzie Swarts, Kaitlyn Weaver, Monica Whipple, and Audrey Wildig.

The 7th grade volleyball season came to end last night with their playoff loss to Montague. Game scores were 15-25 and 23-25.
Serving points for the Eagles were:
Delaney Ruel and Saidee Raap each with 6 points
Brianna Benson with 4 points
Brooklyn Cooper, Saidee, Delaney, Emaleigh Bitson, and Brianna had some great offense going with set ups and spikes. Defensively Jasmine Pastor had great passing from the back row and covered the court well and Paige Primmer and Saidee each guarded the net well with their blocking. This was a true team effort on and off the court. You all played your hearts out and battled back after the loss in the first game and made Montague work till the very last point, never giving up. Coach Dutton is so proud of your improvement throughout the season!! Uniforms need to be washed and turned in and any girl that still owes money for their t-shirt please get it to Coach Dutton ASAP.

The 8th grade volleyball defeated Montague in the 1st round of tournament play yesterday with scores of 25-23 and 25-18. The lady eagles had a season high serving percentage of 91%. Their defense was unbreakable with the ladies digging attacks and tips all night. The 8th graders played a mistake free offense that kept the momentum on their side the whole night. After the game,Coach Rieger was talking to Montague’s varsity coach and he complimented the ladies on their great play, their hustle, and determination to stay focused during the competition.
