The JV Lady Eagles added another win on Tuesday, defeating the Phoenix Christian Cougars at their gym. Game 1 was a back-and-forth affair for the first 10 points, as the Cougars played a scrappy brand of volleyball that took the Eagles by surprise. SCA began to rally well and was able to terminate a number of points behind strong hitting from Hayden Hancock, building a lead down the stretch and taking game one, 25-17.
The Eagles came out with more energy in the second set, starting out with strong serving from Abi Richardson. The Cougars hung close for the first 10 points again, but the Eagles cleaned up their teamwork and made a number of great plays. Setters Abi Richardson and Grace Bauer helped to keep the Eagles on track. Grace Bauer finished off the Cougars with the final 5 serves of the match.
The Lady Eagles look for another win Thursday night at SCA where they face Bourgade Catholic. Go Eagles!
