Senior Hannah Knox sets the ball toward the net, where several of her teammates await the ball to spike it over the net in hopes of scoring. They beat Van in four sets in a non-district game.

On Friday night, the Lady Eagles traveled out west to take on the Lady Vandals in Van. The Freshmen A team won in three sets with scores of 25-19, 21-25, and 25-18. Kenleigh Aguirre’s defense and Maggie Spearman’s play at the net greatly helped their team.
