On Monday, November 7, the Centennial Eagles Girls’ Varsity Volleyball team took on the Wilde Lake Wildecats for the second round of playoffs.
The Wildecats were no match for the Eagles’ fierce defending, led by seniors Gabby Fairley and Camryn Allen, and aggressive attacking, led by senior Rachel Mathew. Centennial was ahead for all of the first set and secured the first set, 25-17.
Clutch plays by Allen and sophomore Camila Cavero helped keep the Eagles up in the second set as well. Wilde Lake put little pressure on Centennial as the second set turned out to be another unchallenging win, 25-16.
The Eagles sealed the win by winning the third set, 25-16. They outmatched the Wildecats both offensively and defensively.
The Eagles will be facing off against their biggest rival, Mount Hebron, on Wednesday, November 9, for the Sectional Finals.
