The spunky Eagles ended with a 9-11 record and only two seniors will be leaving. Ten freshman played this year and will bring their experience to next year’s team which will be led by this year’s nine juniors.

The team will say goodbye to Breanna Kennedy and Sabrina Lopez Fonseca.

The Eagles played Alexander Dawson on October 20, 2016, and came home with a five-game win, 3-2. Jessica Wilhelm and Alex Martin were spectacular on the offense and Cicely Lepro picked up balls all over the court.
