Volleyball/Cross Country Recap:

The 7 th /8 th grade volleyball team traveled to Waterloo last Saturday to participate in a tournament. The first match found the Eagles playing St. Pats, an evenly matched team. Despite some close sets and a tie-breaking set, the Eagles lost, 18-21, 21-16, and 13-15. In the second match against Valley Lutheran, the Eagles had several passes to the setter and hits, and they came away with their first win! The scores were 21-15, 20-22, and 15-13. The final match of the day, had us playing against the host school, Waterloo Christian, who featured some powerhouse servers and hitters. The Eagles fell 12-21, 21-12, and 3-15.
