The Tatum Lady Eagles took on the Jefferson Bulldogs in a district away game this past Tuesday night. The Lady Eagles secured their victory with a full sweep operation, the match score being 3-0 in favor of the Eagles.
The first set was a breeze for the ladies, with little to stand in the way of the mighty Lady Eagles. The Jefferson Bulldogs barely put up any defenses, and the set ended with a score of 25-3.
The second and third sets were much like the first, with scores of 25-5 and 25-, it was apparent that the Lady Bulldogs were not prepared for the force of nature that were the Lady Eagles.
During the match, the teamwork between the Lady Eagles was on point, with support and assistance often received by the explosive players. The effort put into the match by each lady on the team was praiseworthy.
