(October 2nd, 2014)-EDON: Given their 7-1 record in the Buckeye Border Conference, Edon can make for an intimidating host for league opponents. That was not the case when Fayette came to town, however.

Edon took the first game of the series in a difficult 25-17 set. The excitement of that win propelled the Edon girls to a 25-11 win. With their backs against the wall, the Lady Eagles mounted a come back, earning a game 3 victory 25-20. They couldn’t complete the rally, however, as Edon finished the match with a 25-17 win to take the match.
Kaitlin Chrisman nailed 4 aces for the Bombers, also making 7 digs and 4 kills. Nicole Newell led Edon in both kills and digs with 13 and 12 respectively. The 22 assists made by Kaela Gearhart was also a best for the Bombers on the evening.
