Lady eagles drop two games


The Brady Eagles hosted a volleball triangular on Tuesday, Sept. 12 with Dundy County and South Loup.

The Eagles played their first match against the Tigers of Dundy County. Brady jumped out to a first set victory of 25-19. The momentum shifted in the second set as the Eagles seemed to struggle on offense. The Dundy County team started digging everything hit in their direction and constantly kept the Eagle’s attack in play. The Tigers won, 25-19.

Going into the third and final set, the Eagles just couldn’t get themselves on track as they fell into a large deficit and were unable to close the gap as the Tigers went on to 25-16 victory, winning two sets to one.

Trinity Christophersen and Elizabeth Sitorius-Johnson led the way in the kills department as they each had eight.

Emery Swan had 26 digs throughout the three sets and received s5 serves.

The Eagles eventually faced the talented South Loup Bobcats, but were never able to get into the flow of the game and didn’t have the needed firepower to close out a set. South Loup won in two sets, 25-19 and 25-17.

Brady was out hit in the kills category, 25-15. On defense the Eagles played the net well and had seven blocks.

Trinity Christophersen had six kills and Emily Mann had five to lead the Eagles offensively.
