Lady Eagles Make Short Work of 3A Power Harding Academy

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

The Lady Eagles volleyball program has played one of its most challenging non-conference schedules this year in program history. In addition to its 3A West conference members, such as last year’s state champion, Hackett, the Paris program has purposely scheduled non-conference opponents that would push the Lady Eagles and prepare them for their critical conference matches and the state playoffs. It has been a year where Paris has played “anyone, anywhere” and the Eagles coaching staff hopes the tough non-conference schedule will have the Lady Eagles ready for the stretch drive of their conference schedule and post-season play. And on Monday evening, Paris made short work of the traditionally tough and state tournament participant, Harding Academy, in a 3-0 match win in Paris.

Paris defeated the Lady Wildcats by the set scores of 25-17, 25-8, and 25-14. The Lady Eagles’ front line continued its dominance over their opponents, and the back line for Paris continues to play “lights out”, allowing few volleys to hit the floor. Senior Jacee Hart has solidified the offense with outstanding play at the setter position and has been a key factor in assisting the Paris front line.

Paris has little time to enjoy the win over Harding Academy. In less than 24 hours from the end of Monday’s match, the Lady Eagles will board their bus and head to northern Arkansas to resume conference play against the Green Forrest Lady Tigers. When the Lady Eagles return home late Tuesday night, they will then turn their attention to the rematch with Charleston that will be played Thursday at Paris Gymnasium.

Resident Press will be back in Paris on Thursday to cover the Lady Eagles next home match versus the Charleston Lady Tigers. Photos from Monday’s game with Harding Academy are now available on Facebook at Paris Eagles Sports.
