Football, Girls Soccer, Volleyball – Sports Recap

Volleyball 9/13/22

The girls came out with tons of energy as did the red zone. Although all three sets were lost, each set was a true battle with Eastmont finding themselves tied and even with the lead a couple times. When asking senior Tamyra Scott what the girls are working on at practice, she said “we are working on defense so we can transition into a pass, set, kill play. Also we work on moving at a fast pace, and making unexpected plays.” Volleyball faces the Panthers again at Wenatchee on October 6th, go support!

Girls Soccer 9/14/22

This was a hard fought game on both sides. With a score of 0-0 leading to double overtime, which led into a penalty kick shootout, it is safe to say that everyone in the stands were at the edge of their seats. Although Wenatchee won the shootout 4-3,  it does not reflect Eastmont’s strength and ability on the field. With now four starting players suffering from serious knee injuries, Eastmont Girls Soccer still put up a great fight against the tough team. As a (injured) member of the team, I can assure that our team is putting in work everyday in hopes of going far this season. 

Football 9/16/22

Friday night lights are always intense, but even more so during the battle of the bridges. Eastmont faced Wenatchee at home last Friday, beating them for the seventh year in a row with a score of 56-24, also beating the school record for the most points scored in a game. When asking senior Austin Ruffins how this game compares to others, he said, “Our goal is to think of it as a normal game, so we don’t get in our heads.” Senior, Andrew Suan agrees, and also claimed “The locker room is most hyped up before and after the game, during halftime we just get yelled at.” The Eastmont Wildcats football team travels to Davis this coming Friday in hopes of another win.
