A mid-season scheduling change left the Lady Badgers playing back-to-back nights, and the team was never able to get quite on track in a home loss to the Flagstaff Eagles.

Prescott dropped a close first game en route to the 3-0 defeat, but can still close the week strong as they travel to Kingman on Thursday. Miranda Adams had 4 kills and 3 digs and Lexi Wasil had 3 kills and 15 digs.

The loss to the Eagles followed a loss to #9 Thunderbird 3-0. In that match Prescott played strong and gained some great experience. Highlights included Hailey Whitwell with 19 digs, Lexi Wasil and Kari Kasun with 7 and 4 kills respectively, and Tiani Collins with 16 assists.

The Badgers are now (3-3) in the Grand Canyon Region and (6-5) overall.
