The Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagles found themselves in unfamiliar territory on Tuesday night. They were playing in a regional quarterfinal. They also found themselves up against a familiar foe. The Bushland Lady Falcons won the district that Fritch is also a part of, and they have also earned a #3 ranking in the state. The Lady Eagles knew it would be a tough task to fend off the Lady Falcons. Unfortunately for the Lady Eagles, state ranked Bushland would take the quarterfinal in straight sets: 25-15, 25-10, and 25-12.
