TAHS girls down Bellefonte

The Tyrone girls volleyball team evened their record at 1-1 on Wednesday night defeating Bellefonte three games to none.
The Lady Eagles won 25-23, 25-18 and 25-13 with Katie Whitby scoring 16 service points and adding nine assists. Sara Mease had 14 digs and Emily Lloyd contributed three blocks. Jeri Harper also had 11 service points for Tyrone.
“It was a big win not only for this team, but for the program itself,” said Tyrone coach Dave Eckberg. “We are now in a league with some teams that have very good volleyball traditions; Bellefonte being one of them. It’s nice to see that we can compete on that level when we play to our potential. We limited our mistakes and played well defensively, but we still need to be able to generate more offense.”
The Lady Eagles Jayvees defeated Bellefonte two games to one, 20-25, 25-14, 15-11. The TAHS Junior Varsity also improves to 1-1.
Tyrone defends their 2002 championship at the Bald Eagle Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 6 with action scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
