September 19, 2012

TUPPERS PLAINS, Ohio — The Eastern volleyball team was only eight points better than visiting Trimble Tuesday night, but the Lady Eagles still managed to post a straight-game 25-23, 25-21, 25-23 victory in a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division matchup at the Eagle’s Nest in Meigs County.

The host Lady Eagles (11-1, 7-0 TVC Hocking) had fits with the Lady Tomcats in all three contests, but EHS ultimately found ways to persevere in each of those games — allowing Eastern to claim its 27th consecutive league triumph. The Green and White also extended their current win streak to eight matches.

Maddie Rigsby led the Lady Eagle service attack with 11 points, followed by Jordan Parker with nine and Kiki Osborne with seven. Gabby Hendrix had six points and Ally Hendrix added five points, while Erin Swatzel rounded things out with one point.

Rigsby led the net attack with 13 kills, followed by Parker with 11 kills and Swatzel with eight kills. Katie Keller had four kills, while Osborne and Ally Hendrix both provided three kills apiece.
