The varsity Eagles team was undefeated in the match, however, the Falcons did give them a run for their money in the last two games.

“We didn't do anything that we weren't supposed to, so that is a plus. However, we have a few adjustments to work on before our next match such as setting. I feel like if we continue to improve these smaller details then we will have a successful season,” commented Coach Bruce Bogese of the Eagles.

He also went on to say, “I am very proud of my players, especially Libbie Reed, Brittany Aitken, and Aunna Stewart. Both seniors came through tonight and overcame my expectations. Libbie Reed had her best varsity game since being on the team for two years.”
