    They’re “volleyballed out,” according to head coach Stephanie Barrows, but the Eminence volleyball team is on a roll.

    In the First Spike Invitational Tournament, held at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center on Saturday, the Lady Warriors won the bronze division, giving them some much needed confidence heading into this week.

    The team played five games, spread among pool and tournament play. “The first little bit of it was pool play for fun,” Barrows said, while the second part was all business.
