How it Happened

  • The Seahawks started the first set strong with an immediate kill by Grace Gilmore (Redding, CT). Despite a strong start, the Eagles countered and created a 6-point lead. This prompted Coach Alexis Calloway to call a timeout in an attempt to regroup. Unfortunately, the Seahawks were unable to gain their footing and fell in the first set 9-25.
  • Mesha Shupe (Waldorf, MD) came in hot at the beginning of the second set with a kill assisted by Alayna Sievert (Lusby, MD). Yet, the Seahawks were unable to keep up with the Eagles as they soared ahead. Margaret McGlothlin (Chesapeake City, MD) interrupted this stretch with a service ace, but it wasn’t enough to notch a set win (10-25). 
  • The third set started strong with an early service ace from Alayna Sievert to put the Seahawks up 2-1. The Eagles were not deterred by this small lead and pushed hard back. The Seahawks disrupted the Eagle’s 7-point lead with a service ace from Meghan Stevens (Westminster, MD).
