Lady Eagles Advance to Semi-Finals

Keely serving as Coach Little looks on
In what proved to be a straightforward series yesterday, the Lady Eagles varsity volleyball team met and defeated the Park Hill Chargers for a spot in the Front Range Christian Athletic Association's State Volleyball Tournament on Saturday, October 25.

With solid serving, some powerful attacking shots, and consistent defensive play, the Eagles won the match in three with scores of 25-12, 25-10, and 25-19.

Senior Becca Pranger led the starting line-up alongside Heather Burdges, Keely Campbell, Kate Lundy, Sydney McManamay, and Alli Dages.  Maddie Montera and Tori McManamay lent support from the bench and both saw playing time during the match.

"You girls have really come together as a team, and we're at our strongest going into the tournament," coach Ben Little told the team in the huddle after practice today.  "We have a chance to do something really special if you keep playing as a team."  Athletic director Tom Navarrette added, "The girls have really worked hard and had a solid season - we're excited to travel to the tournament Saturday and cheer them on at the next level."
