The Eagles volleyball team continued its roll in the second half of the season with a 3-0 win over Menahga last week at the Sports Center.
Senior setter Tessa Wegscheid was outstanding from the service line to lead the Eagles over their conference rival. Wegscheid had nine aces to go along with her 19 set assists and 13 digs.
With the win New York Mills improved to 4-2 in the Park Region Conference and jumped ahead of Menahga for third place (3-2).
"The girls played really well and put down numerous kills," said Eagles head coach Amy Koskela. "Our serving had definitely improved this season and that showed with Tessa's stunning performance from the line, and the girls just all-together played as a team."
In game one the Eagles took a 15-9 lead on a Kristina Boe kill and led 22-15 after Chelsea Lausten hammered home a point at the net. Stephanie Cichy hit the game-winner to give the Eagles a 25-16 win.
The Eagles dominated game two and won 25-13.
Game three was much closer with the Braves tying the game at 17-17, but after a Wegscheid ace and Bobbi Smith kill the Eagles led 24-19. NY Mills held on to win 25-22 and earned the three-game Homecoming Week sweep.
"It was a fun game to coach because I could feel the excitement from the players and crowd," Koskela added.
The regular season will come to an end next week as the Eagles travel to Henning on Oct. 17. Section 8AA playoffs are scheduled to begin Oct. 23.
Browerville match canceled due to power outage
The flickering power throughout New York Mills Tuesday night caused the cancelation of the Eagles Volleyball game against Browerville.
The game was delayed at first due to the outage, but power was brought back long enough for Mills to take the first game.
Another outage caused the final cancelation. There is no date set for a make-up.
