Eaglettes to return to tournament play

Virtually every volleyball program that calls Van Zandt County home made its way to Edgewood last weekend with Canton, Edgewood, Fruitvale, Grand Saline and Wills Point all participating in the third annual Back to School Dig-Fest Aug. 24, 26.

Canton would finish tournament play with a 3-3 record overall, finishing as runners-up in the consolation portion of the Championship Bracket.

The Eaglettes opened tournament play with pool play Aug. 24, competing against teams from Hawkins, Lone Oak and Paris for a spot in either the Championship or Consolation Brackets.

Canton managed to bounce back from a rough start to their tournament run, registering wins over both Hawkins and Lone Oak after a morning loss to Paris to finish second overall in Pool A.

The performance was good enough to advance the Eaglettes to the Championship Bracket alongside Edgewood, Grand Saline, Keene, Life Waxahachie, Paris and Wills Point.
