Eagle Grove volleyball falls to Mason City Newman, faces Paton-Churdan on Thursday

Eagle Grove hosted Mason City Newman on Tuesday night, in hopes of finally getting into the win column in 2021. Unfortunately, the Eagles fell short as the Knights brought home a 3-0 sweep of the Eagles on Tuesday.

Newman took set 1 by a score of 25-17, as the Eagles showed plenty of fight in the opening set. The Knights, however, dominated in Set 2, as they took a 2-0 lead with a 25-10 win in the 2nd set. Eagle Grove did push Newman to the brink in set 3, before the Knights were able to close out a 25-22 win, to earn a 3-0 sweep.

The Eagles fell to 0-20 with the loss, but will have a great shot at fighting for a win on Thursday, as they face the 1-13 Rockets of Paton-Churdan, members of the Rolling Valley Conference.
