The Pierce City Lady Eagles volleyball team (2-0) opened the 2012 season with victories over Sarcoxie and Stockton.

"This season we've had a lot of girls step up and fill important roles," said Pierce City coach Allison Davis. "I believe this year's team has the chemistry and motivation to go all the way. We are going to be faced with a lot of good competition this season and we are taking one game at a time."

On Tuesday night, Pierce City defeated Stockton 25-21, 25-23.
