The 5th/6th volleyball team played two games last week. October 5 saw the Eagles playing Trinity Lutheran. The Eagles came out with strong serving and won the first set, 25-18. Trinity came back in sets two and three to win the match with scores of 17-25 and 9-15. A day later in the final match of the season, the 5th/6 volleyball team played LIS. The Eagles again came out with strong serving, winning the first set, 25-17, but the Cougars came back in sets two and three to win the match, 18-25 and 13-15. The girls improved throughout the season both in communicating and volleyball technique. The 6th grade athletes were great leaders and the 5th grade athletes showed great growth throughout the season. Great season Eagles!
