The Lady Eagles had a solid start to their season on August 26 in LaCrosse.

The team first faced LaCrosse and pulled off a victory in the first set, 27-25. However, the Eagles struggled in their second set, losing 21-25. Determined not to give up another win, the Eagles took the third set, 25-20, and won the match, 2-1.

Next, the Eagles played Victoria.  Even though they worked hard, the Eagles fell short, losing the match 12-25.  Trego fought hard in the second set but faced another close loss, 23-25.

Coach Bailey Belisle weighed in on the team’s performance.  

“It was a great way to start the season…with a big win over LaCrosse! Both teams had losses on the night, and it is inevitable that we are going to have more of those this season. It’s all about how we use those losses…we won’t dwell on them; we will use them as learning experiences! I was very proud of all the girls for our first matches!"
