(Carbondale & Elkville, Ill.) - The Lady Falcons went 3-0 to win the championship at Saturday's Giant City volleyball tournament, defeating Bethel (25-23, 25-21), Shawnee (25-4, 25-4) and Cobden (25-17, 23-25, 15-12), losing just one set on the day. Morgan Bernardini and Emma Funk were named to the All-Tournament Team for Elverado.
On Friday, February 16, the Lady Falcons fell in three sets to Adams, 25-22, 19-25, 15-6. The loss was Elverado's second on the year, and after their three wins at Giant City, the Lady Falcons sit at 6-2 overall on the season.
"We played well the first two games, the last set we were put on the defensive and got away from playing offense," said Elverado head coach Donette Wheatley after Friday's loss. "We made a mistake and let that turn into several; couldn't shake them off and go on."
The Lady Falcons are back at Giant City on Tuesday, February 20, then at OLMC on Thursday, February 22.
