TUPPERS PLAINS, Ohio — The Eastern volleyball team clinched at least a share of the Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division title Monday night with a 25-2, 25-10, 25-5 victory over visiting Wahama at the Eagles’ Nest in Meigs County.
The host Lady Eagles (20-0, 14-0 TVC Hocking) claimed a season sweep of the Lady Falcons (2-17, 0-15), as EHS posted a 25-12, 25-7, 25-4 win at Wahama back on Sept. 22. Eastern, which owns a two-match lead in the league standings with two matches remaining, also earned a share of its 13th TVC Hocking crown in the last 15 seasons.
Brenna Holter led the Lady Eagles with 20 service points, followed by Jamie Swatzel with 10 points. Ally Hendrix and Baylee Collins added eight points apiece, while Brooke Johnson and Gabby Hendrix rounded things out with six and four points respectively.
Maddie Rigsby led the net attack with nine kills, followed by Swatzel with eight kills and Jordan Parker with five kills. Holter contributed three kills to the winning cause, while Kiki Osborne and Erin Swatzel each added one kill. Parker also recorded the lone block for the victors.
Brittany Stewart led Wahama with two service points, while Allicia White and Katlin Clarke added one point apiece.
Eastern has also won 20 or more games for three straight seasons.
Eastern, currently ranked tied for sixth in the Division IV coaches poll, will try to wrap up the outright TVC Hocking Tuesday night at Trimble or Thursday against Southern. Wahama hosts senior night Tuesday when it wraps up league play against Belpre.
