Eaglettes fall to Whitehouse in four

The Canton Eaglettes were able to stay close to home last week, welcoming the Whitehouse Lady Wildcats for a non-district matchup Aug. 29. The Canton high school program finished 1-3 overall against Whitehouse in four total matches played during the night between the varsity, JV and freshman levels.

The Lady Wildcats’ varsity team got off to a fast start against Canton, taking each of the first two sets for a commanding 25-23, 25-12 lead over the Eaglettes. Canton played its best set of the night in the third, forcing a fourth set by outpointing Whitehouse 25-22.

With the possibility of a fifth set looming, Whitehouse bounced back to close out Canton in four by taking the final set 25-14.

Play between the two programs' JV teams was extremely competitive as Whitehouse managed to outlast their Eaglette counterparts 25-23, 16-25, 20-25.

The freshman teams competed in a doubleheader with Whitehouse taking the first match 25-17, 25-4. Canton's freshman bounced back in a big way during the second match, taking a 25-20, 16-25, 25-16 win over the Lady Wildcats.

Canton was scheduled to host Brook Hill Sept. 5 and Cayuga Sept. 8 before traveling to take on Spring Hill Sept. 12. District play for the Eaglettes will begin on the road later this month with a trip to rival Van Sept. 22.
