  • The Eldorado volleyball team won their home opener in three sets against Hamilton County Tuesday night.
    The Eagles cruised to a 25-15 final in match one, but fell 25-15 in the second match, before rallying for a 25-21 win in the third and final match.
    "The girls played well tonight," said head coach Lisa Craig. "The first game is the best game we have played this season. We got down in the second game and started a little slow in the third game, but the girls battled back and finished strong. We had a total team effort."
    Seniors Elsie Talkington and Megan Lowe were pivotal for the Eagles. Talkington played stopper at the net and Lowe seemed to have found her game on offense.
    Talkington was 7-for-7 on sets with a spike, while going 10-for-13 on blocks and a kill.
    Lowe went 24-for-29 on spikes with seven kills. She was 11-for-12 at the service line with 13 points and had four blocks and one kill.
    Corrina Steed had 31 spikes and four kills to go along with 11 service points and 29 digs. Christine Williams had 14 digs to go along with eight points and Olivia Brown had 11 points to go along with 26 digs.
    "Corrina, Christine and Olivia are lead the team with the defense," Craig said. "All the girls played defense well tonight, especially the first and third games."
    Caitlin Burnett had 52 sets to go along with 16 assists. She also had 19 spikes, three kills and 11 service points. Kourtney Phillips had 11 points, while going 16-for-20 on spikes and two kills.
    Eldorado lost Ashley Brown to a shoulder injury, while no timetable has been established on her return.
    The junior varsity team also won in three sets, taking match one 25-21, falling 25-21 in the second and winning the third 15-12.
    Eldorado will host Elverado Thursday.
