Brown County High School Varsity volleyball team won their first invitational of the season. They were up against Green Castle, Edinburgh, and Indiana Creek. This is the second year in a row they have won their invite. However, these wins did not come easy. According to Chloe Lee, every game had parts that were unexpected. They first went up against Green Castle with a strong lead at first, only to fall behind in the middle of the match. The girls rallied together in the end and pulled out a win with a final score of 2-1.
Next up was Edinburgh, and our Lady Eagles were still full of energy and excitement from their previous win, so when it came time to volley a win against Edinburgh it was not all that difficult. They were victorious against the Edinburgh Lancers with a final of 2-0. Even with two wins behind them, they realized “they were having some difficulty completing the pass up after serve”, said Natalie Suding, a defensive specialist for the Eagles. As they prepared to go up against the next school, the Eagles adjusted and worked together to gain a better pass up, which ultimately led them to another win against Indian Creek.
Traditionally competitive rival Indian Creek didn’t rattle them though. “I wasn’t surprised because we have been putting in a lot of hard work because we knew Indian Creek would be hard to beat,” said Chloe Lee. During the Indian Creek match, they had a solid point lead when the team hit a slump and began to struggle with serving. However, Brown County Eagles teammates are a united force and successfully they were able to “beat the creek” with a win of 2-0.
