Eagles volleyball team advances in Region IX tournament

On the first day of competition at the Region IX tournament, third-seeded Laramie County Community College found a way to take down sixth-seeded Sheridan College three sets to two.

Next up the Eagles will take on second-seeded Western Wyoming Community College Nov. 1 at 2 p.m.

The Eagles will be looking to get over the hump once again after pulling out a tie in the regular season series, with a three-set-to-two match win Oct.6.

The winner of the afternoon game will continue on in the winner’s bracket Nov. 2 while the loser will be forced to play a second straight match Nov. 1 against Eastern Wyoming Community College with the danger of going home early the day after the tournament started in Powell, Wyo.
