EHS head volleyball coach Lisa Craig described it as a "total team effort."

The Eagles, who fell behind Harrisburg after the first set Tuesday night, rallied for the win in sets two and three to knock off cross country rival Harrisburg at Duff-Kingston Gymnasium.

Harrisburg took the first set 25-9 and then the Eagles went on to win set two 25-22 and the tie breaker set 25-18.

"The girls didn't give up when they dropped the first game," Craig said. "The whole team served well tonight. Emma Wargel had a great net game, while Kynzie Sizemore, Lily Mosby and Karis Lane also had a great night at the net. Paige Munds and Lauryn Hampton did a great job of getting the ball to the hitters and Paige Munds, Lexie Mitchell and Kyla Pilkington did an awesome job of covering the back row."

Mitchell finished with 19 digs and 16 serve received, while going 4-4 on serves with four points. Hampton was 25-26 on sets and 7-7 on serves with eight points and one ace. Wargel was 18-21 on spikes with six kills and went 14-15 on serves with 15 points, two aces, 16 digs and nine blocks with three kills. Sizemore was 19-20 on spikes with three kills and went 4-6 on serves with six points.

Munds was 35-35 on sets and 8-8 on serves with nine points and 25 digs. Pilkington was 4-6 on serves with six points and eight digs, while Mosby went 9-10 on spikes and 11-11 on serves with 11 points, three aces, six blocks and one kill. Jessica Price was 2-2 on spikes and Lane went 11-12 on spikes with three kills and one block.

EHS will play in the Norris City-Omaha-Enfield Tournament next Wednesday and Thursday.
