CHERRYAVLE -- Uniontown's voleyball team posted a 2-2 mark at a tournament here Saturday. With that record, the Eagles were unable to advance out of pool play.
Uniontown (11-7) defeated Southeast-Cherokee in its first match, 25-17, 25-15. Jacy Ermel had seven kills and Abbie Smith four.
The Eagles lost to Howard-West Elk in their next match in three games, 20-25, 25-21, 25-19. Ermel had three kills while Smith had two kills.
In their next match, Uniontown took a step up in competition level as they faced Class 4A Independence. The Bulldogs prevailed but it took three games, 23-25, 25-11, 25-20. Smith had nine kills, Devann Crystal four and Ermel three.
In their final match, Uniontown swept Yates Center, 25-7, 25-23.
"We were disappointed to not advance out of pool play," Uniontown head coach Jackie Hall said. "But we were 2-2, playing two really close three-game matches which hopefully will teach us some lessons as a team.
"We are still trying to cut down on our mental, unforced, errors. We are also having trouble being consistent in scoring points with each rotation. With the game being rally scored now, you can't just be satisfied with getting the rally point then serving into the net or committing an unforced error. These are things we know we can correct and will continue to improve on."
The Eagles will play in a Three Rivers League triangular tonight at Moran against Chetopa and host Marmaton Valley
