Boys Volleyball Defeats Rival Wade Hampton in Thriller! Advances to Upper State Chapionship.

The Eastside Boys Volleyball team played their 2nd round playoff game at Wade Hampton Wednesday night in front of a raucous crowd that was predominantly Eastside faithful. This marked the 3rd time this season the Eagles would face the Region 2 AAAA champs, with the last regular season match being won by the Generals by a total of 5 points. The third time would be the charm for the EHS Boys.

Wade Hampton came into the match as the Upstate's #1 seed in the SCHSL Playoffs. Eastside as the 5 seed was considered the underdog, but they came out with a lot of bite to their bark and won the first two sets. Wade recovered and took advantage of several mistakes by the Eagles to take sets 3 and 4. The Eagles, led by captains Connor Usher and Chase Noblitt did not let the moment be too big for them. They rallied the team to a 16-14 5th set victory to take the match and advance the Eagles to the Upper State Championship.

Eastside will take on the #3 seed Catawba Ridge Copperheads next Monday at 6:00 in Fort Mill, SC. The winner of that match will claim the title of Upper State Champions and move on to play in the State Championship Match on Thursday Nov. 4th.
