The Lady Eagles volleyball team is having a very busy week. They first traveled to Hill City to participate in the Ringneck Classic on October 8 and then made a journey to Dighton on October 10.

At Hill City, the ladies went up against Ness City during their first game and suffered a loss, 17-25 in the first set and a very similar second set, 17-25.

Next up, the Eagles took a win versus Golden Plains. They took it in three sets with scores of 24-26, 25-17, and 25-22.

The ladies then defeated Atwood in two; 25-14 and 25-22.

Advancing to the semi-finals, the girls were up against home team Hill City. The Eagles lost the first set, 19-25 and the second set, 19-25.

The Lady Eagles came back for a win against Western Plains, winning both sets, 25-15, 25-16, to take home a third place overall in the tournament.

On October 11, their first adversary was Dighton who defeated the Eagles 19-25, 19-25.

Trego’s second opponent, Wheatland-Grinnell, also defeated them in three sets, 17-25, 25-22, 14-25.

However, in the ladies’ last game of the night, they faced Golden Plains and triumphed against them. In the first set the girls won 26-24. Golden Plains slid past them in the second set, 21-25. Trego refused to fall to their opponent and won in their third set, 25-23.

Teammate Adell Riedel commented on the ladies’ performance, “I think we played well. We had many good moments throughout the night. However, we need to work on better communication and be more aggressive.”
