In the Pleasant Home tournament Saturday, the W.S. Neal Lady Eagle volleyball team went 2-2 and finished in second place.
The Lady Eagles lost their first game to Pleasant Home 2-0 (25-19 and 25-13) but claimed a 2-0 win in their second game against Florala (25-12 and 25-13).
In their third game, the Lady Eagles defeated Laurel Hill 2-0 (25-15 and 25-20) before falling to Pleasant Home again 2-0 (25-23 and 25-12).
With the 2-2 record in the tournament, the Lady Eagles saw their overall record go to 6-9.
“The tournament at Pleasant Home was a good experience for us,” W.S. Neal Lady Eagle head coach Jeff Haney said. “We have a couple more tournaments (County and Area) coming up soon, and it was good for the girls to get reacquainted with tournament play. Our goal going over there was to come home with first place. We didn’t reach that goal, so of course we are a little disappointed. We did finish second and that is something for us to be proud of and build on.”
