Lady Eagles headed back to regionals

The third time was indeed a charm as the Eastern volleyball team avenged a pair of regular season setbacks while advancing to the program’s ninth regional tournament Saturday afternoon with a 17-25, 23-25, 25-22, 25-15, 15-5 victory over top-seeded Trimble in a Division IV district championship match at Jackson High School. The Lady Eagles (15-10) captured their first district title since 2012 and are headed to Lancaster High School for a 6 p.m. regional semifinal Wednesday against Waterford. Complete details of Eastern’s epic comeback win will be available in the Tuesday sports editions of The Daily Sentinel and the Gallipolis Daily Tribune.
