Weekly update from our Eddyville High School sports teams.
Last week the Eddyville Eagles volleyball team played five matches and won four of them. The week began with a trip to Mannahouse Academy where the Eagles won 3-0. On the 21st they played against Mckenzie twice and won 3-0 in both matches. The week finished up on Saturday with a tournament at East Linn Christian. The Eagles advanced to the championship bracket where they played the #1 ranked team in 2A, Western Christian. They lost, but gathered some great experience. They finished the day with a bounceback win vs Colton and won 2-0. The Eagles are 10-2 and ranked 26th. They have a huge match at home vs Mohawk on Wednesday, 9/27. Come out and support!
On Friday, Eddyville’s football team went up against the Triangle Lake Lakers and took home the victory by a score of 53-23. It was their first victory in over 5 years against the Lakers. Eddyville was led by the inspired play of seniors Preston Segaline, Dustin Prindel, and Brayden Mekemson, all scoring touchdowns and contributing big plays on the defensive side of the ball. The Eagles are now ranked 4th in the 6-man rankings. The Eagles go to George Fox University to go and fight for the win against C.S. Lewis Academy at 7:30 pm.
Last week, the Eagles went to the Champs Invite in Lebanon. Eddyville’s two runners perched on fifth and seventeenth places for the women’s 3000 meter. Unfortunately, we did not have enough runners to score, but regardless, it was a good race. Next up, Eddyville travels to Santiam Christian in Adair Village for the Santiam Christian Invitational.
