East Coweta gets a sweep on the road

The Newnan Times-Herald

With the region tournament starting next week, the East Coweta Indians are playing some of their best volleyball of the year when it counts the most.

On Thursday night, they traveled to Starr’s Mill and swept matches against the Lady Panthers and the Eagle’s Landing Lady Eagles. Both teams are ranked in the top-10.

East Coweta fell in the first set to Starr’s Mill but came back strong to win the second.

In the third tiebreaker set, they fell behind 3-0 from the start and twice more found themselves down by three points. But they rallied to win the set and the match by a score of 16-14.

They will play their Region 2-7A first-round match at home on Tuesday night against the Campbell Lady Spartans (11-7).

The Lady Indians defeated Campbell on the road in three straight sets.

A win against Campbell would set up a rematch of the East Coweta/Newnan matchup for the region title.
