TUPPERS PLAINS, Ohio — Eastern had five players reach double figures while earning the program’s 15th straight league victory Monday night following a 77-19 decision over visiting Miller in a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division girls basketball matchup at the Eagle’s Nest in Meigs County.
The Lady Eagles (12-1, 10-0 TVC Hocking) picked up their sixth straight victory of the season in impressive fashion, as the hosts allowed just five second half points after storming out to a 46-14 intermission advantage.

The Lady Falcons (1-14, 1-9) — who dropped their sixth straight decision — received a three-pointer from Rebecca Houck in the third quarter and a field goal from Twila Muncy in the finale, which rounded out the guests’ scoring.
Eastern outscored MHS 17-3 in the third period for a 63-17 lead headed into the finale, then closed regulation with a 14-2 surge to wrap up the 58-point triumph. EHS also claimed a season sweep after posting a 78-14 victory at Miller back on December 10.
Jordan Parker led the hosts with a game-high 15 points, followed by Savannah Hawley with 14 points and Maddie Rigsby with 13 markers. Katie Keller and Erin Swatzel also reached double figures with 12 points apiece.
Jenna Burdette added seven points to the winning cause, while Taylor Palmer rounded out the scoring with four markers. EHS was 15-of-19 at the free throw line for 79 percent.
