  • Volleyball falls to Grant

    The best thing the Lady Panthers can do after their loss to Grant County is forget about it and move on. That was the message head coach Lynn Eaglin gave her team following their 2-0 loss Wednesday, Sept. 23. The Lady Braves (18-6) won the match by a commanding margin, 25-7, 25-7.

    “Offensively, we gave them too many free balls and opportunities to be aggressive at the net,” Eaglin said. “Those two big girls [Michelle Baker and Maddie Morgan] were all over the place.”
