After a lengthy six-match losing streak, the Eastbrook Panthers got back in the win column on Tuesday night, sweeping the Blackford Bruins in straight sets.
“I think they felt more confidence going out there because Blackford sometimes struggles,” Eastbrook Head Coach Bailie Havens said. “They were confident starting out, and it showed. They pushed themselves to be better tonight I think. They got on top quickly, and it went from there.
“Everybody stepped in and played their role. They were in better spirits.”
Lexi Binkerd led the offense with seven kills and two blocks, while Bri Stepp and Kayleigh Gross each finished with eight digs to lead the defensive effort. Ava Walters dished out 11 assists, while Gross also recorded four aces.
