Eagles gear up for Lady Trojans
The Washington & Lee Eagles will soon be setting their eyes on district play traveling to Essex next week, but in the meantime they will need to close a nondistrict schedule.
Last week, the Eagles earned a 3-0 win over King William and 3-0 loss to Rappahannock County dropping to a 2-4 record on the season.
On Sept. 10, the Lady Eagles opened the week finishing the game in the first three sets over the visiting King William Lady Cavaliers (17-25, 17-25 and 20-25). On the attack for W&L, Alexa Weeks led the team with 11 kills followed by Savannah Seager and Victoria Minor each with four.
Devany Jones and Seager tied with two aces on the night, followed by Ashley McGill and Veronica Wyszynski tying with a block each and Minor with 10 digs. Jones led the team with 18 assists.
The visiting Lady Panthers from Rappahannock County made a quick trip to W&L dropping the home team in three games (25-17, 25-9 and 25-18). Weeks and Wyszynski led the team with four kills each, and McGill with a service ace.
Minor led the team with 12 digs and Jones with seven assists.
