The girls were lead by Alexis Hartzell who had 13 service points with 4 aces and she even chipped in with 9 digs! Blaire Mortensen had 15 assists and Autumn O'Keefe and Kaitlyn Geers both had 5 kills. The team continues to show that even when they are faced with adversity they can stay positive and work together. Great job girls! 

The Varsity Volleyball team defeated the Lakeview Wildcats last night in 3 sets to raise their league record to 4-0. The lady eagles played some great defense all night and never gave up on the ball making some great saves throughout the match. Kassidy Heeringa and Meghan Boyd led the attack with 5 kills each and Brandi Boehm added 4. Kassidy Heeringa kept the Wildcats on their toes by moving the ball around to all of her hitters and finished with 10 assists. The lady eagles played a tough front line slowing down many balls from the Lakeview hitters. Justine Wolter and Kelsey Krueger led the defense with 19 and 14 digs each. Kassidy Heeringa served up 18 points with 8 aces, Justine Wolter and Olivia Harrison each added 8 points and 1 ace. Thank you to all the fans who came out to show your support, we really appreciate it. The lady eagles will now travel to the Muskegon Oakridge tournament on Saturday. Great job ladies!
