It’s a long drive down to Walsh and it’s always a challenge there as they have good athletes and are well coached. This trip to Walsh was no exception as it took the Eagles a halftime adjustment to completely close the door on the Eagles from the south, 86-34. Eads is now 5-1 on the season and is setting their site on rivals from the north, Kit Carson, who comes to town on Friday in what is promised to be a barn burnin’ showdown from the get-go. The Wildcats are 6-0 and looking to protect their perfect season.
It was a grueling week for the Eads Lady Eagles volleyball team as they struggled for cohesiveness in their play on the road that included five total matches in five days. Eads would drop all but one of those matches as they lost to Wiley on Tuesday, 3-0 (18-25, 17-25, 10-25), and then played Walsh strong on Friday, losing 3-2 (25-21, 21-25, 14-25, 25-20, 12-15). After a long trip home from Walsh, they got on the bus Saturday morning traveling to Swink for that annual tournament. They would go 2-and-1 on Saturday losing to both Springfield, 3-0 (14-25, 18-25, 13-25), and Swink, 3-1 (16-25, 10-25, 25-23, 20-25), before beating Sangre de Cristo, 3-2 (19-25, 19-25, 25-21 27-25, 15-11), in an exciting finish.
The Plainview Volleyball team also saw action during Homecoming losing 3-0.
The Lamar Savages (13-6, 10-2 league) could not figure out Rocky Ford’s (18-1, 12-0 league) hurler Selena Medina for a second time this season as the senior gave up only two hits to Lamar in the District finals on Thursday winning 8-1 at the Savages’ home field. Medina is huge for the Lady Meloneers as she not only carries one of the best ERAs in the state at 1.44, but she also has 15 wins under her belt using 99 strike outs to get there. In addition, the senior leads the way for Rocky with the bat hitting at a .466 average with 27 hits and 30 RBIs.
