A Solid Beginning

By: Allison Lockwood

With a crowd of Screaming Eagles in the stands, our ladies first played at 3 on Friday afternoon against Trinity and just a couple hours later went up against Clearwater.  After two unfortunate losses against those schools, the Lady Eagles pulled off two great wins on Saturday.  They faced Florida Christian and Trinity Baptist at 11 and 3 where they proudly came out on top.  They won both of these matches in just three sets.

The weekend was “a chance for us to get to see the teams that play in the South that we don’t usually play”, said Team Captain Kaylyn Roedding, a Junior.  “We play Trinity again on October 2nd, so that will be a really big game for us.”  She remembers the first play against Clearwater when “Bethany bombed the ball and got a kill.”

So far these ladies are off to a great start, 9-3 at this point in the season.  With another recent win on Tuesday against Atlanta Christian College, the Lady Eagles’ next match will be in Gainsville, GA on Friday, September 18th, against Brenau University.
