  • Eagles hold off Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Cannelton attempted only 20 spikes in a 25-20, 26-24, 25-13 volleyball loss to Lanesville Thursday.
    “We just didn’t set the ball up enough,” said Cannelton Coach Felicia Myers.
    One reason for that was the Bulldogs have only one experienced setter. Another reason was their inexperienced back-row players don’t make good passes to the setter as often as more experienced players would.
    The Bulldogs were in the second game all the way because they were “talking to each other and moving,” said Myers.
