FORT WAYNE â€” The Columbia City Lady Eagle volleyball teamâ€™s season came to an end Wednesday night at the hands of the Fort Wayne Snider Lady Panthers in the opening round of IHSAA Sectional play.
The Eagles fell by a 25-12, 25-21, 25-22 score in a match that turned very competitive after the first game.
â€śWe just made some mental errors tonight, we were late getting to the pass, late getting to the set,â€ť said Hinen. â€śWhen we ran out offense we did well, but we had a lot of passes we didnâ€™t utilize, a lot of sets we didnâ€™t get to. Our back row did a great job, because we were just getting hammered all night, because we had virtually no blocking at the net.â€ť
Hinen singled out the lone senior on the team, Alivia Roberts for her leadership, and mentioned that the rest of the Eagles return for next year, including first team All-NHC players Gabrielle Hazen and Kalisha Goree, who both recorded eight kills for the Eagles and Honorable Mention All-NHC libero Macie Hinen.
The Eagles end the season with a 21-8 record.View more articles in:
