Eagles Host Alsea, Loses MWL Contest 3-0
McKenzie Also Drops Two To Eddyville Charter
The McKenzie Varsity Volleyball team opened its doors to Mt. West League rival Alsea last Tuesday, September 19. The Wolverines strolled in relatively confident, having lost only one MWL contest to Eddyville Charter, the current MWL leader. And the Eagles weren’t able to thwart any of that swagger as Alsea rolled to a 3-0 win over their young hosts. Set scores were 25-16, 25-10, and 25-11.
McKenzie took to the road on Thursday, September 21, to face off with the aforementioned MWL leaders in an MWL double-header. The Eagles of Eddyville left no doubt that the McKenzie youths still have some court time to pay before they match up with the leaders. Eddyville Charter won the first set, 25-11, 25-4, and 25-6, and backed up the sweep with another 3-0 match win, 25-8, 25-9, and 25-8. The losses put the McKenzie team at 1-6 in MWL play and 1-7 overall.
