MASON, W.Va. — The Wahama volleyball team got better as the night progressed, but visiting Eastern still proved to be too much to handle Thursday night following a 25-5, 25-16, 25-20 decision in a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division matchup in Mason County.
The Lady Eagles (17-2, 12-1 TVC Hocking) trailed only once in the entire match, which came at 1-0 early in Game 3. EHS cruised to a 2-0 match lead before the host Lady Falcons kept things interesting down the stretch.
The victory, however, allowed Eastern to claim its fifth straight win and a season sweep of WHS. The Lady Eagles defeated Wahama by a 25-6, 25-8, 25-15 margin back on September 12 in Tuppers Plains.
Jordan Parker led the EHS service attack with 14 points, followed by Katie Keller and Maddie Rigsby with 11 service points apiece. Parker and Rigsby each recorded five aces, while Keller contributed three aces.
Kelsey Johnson added 10 points and four aces to the winning cause, while Kaitlyn Barber chipped in three points. Erin Swatzel and Lindsay Wolfe each scored two points, with Wolfe adding one ace to the win.
Parker led the Eastern net attack with 10 kills, followed by Rigsby with six kills and Swatzel with five kills. That trio also added a block apiece in the triumph, while Keller and Johnson each chipped in two kills.
Wolfe led the offense with 20 assists and Paige Cline paced the defense with 19 digs.
Rebecca Roach led the WHS service attack with seven points, followed by Olivia Hill with six points and Sierra Carmichael with three points. Bunni Peters was next with two points, while the trio of Kylie Oliver, Emily Casto and Victoria Allensworth chipped in a point apiece.
