    The Eminence Warriors volleyball team had a lot on the line Oct. 12 in their final regular season match at Gallatin County.

A loss opened up the possibility of losing the tiebreaker with Gallatin and forcing them into the 4-5 seed game.

    The Warriors understood this and went out and took care of business by defeating the Lady Wildcats 3-1.

    The Warriors won the first set 25-17.
