The Holden high school sports teams returned to action this week after a two-week layoff of competitions and activities.

The two-week break was implemented in an attempt to curb the spread of Covid-19 after positive cases were discovered among the student population in early September.

On Tuesday this week, the Lady Eagles softball team captured a road win over Carrollton by the final score of 10-8. Look for the complete game article in next week’s edition of The Holden Image.

On Thursday this week, the Lady Eagles softball team plays a home conference game against Richmond. The varsity game versus the Lady Spartans begins at 5 p.m. The junior varsity game follows the varsity game with a scheduled start time of 6:30.

The Lady Eagles softball team continues play on Friday this week at the UCM Tournament with pool play games at 1:45 p.m. versus Blair Oaks, and at 3:30 versus Ray-Pec. The tournament continues on Saturday with bracket games. Times are to-be-determined for bracket play.

The Lady Eagles volleyball team plays a home conference match against Lexington this Thursday, September 24. A varsity match is scheduled to be played at 5 p.m. with no junior varsity slated for the evening.

This Friday, September 25, the Eagles varsity football team travels to Lexington for a 7 p.m. kickoff as the team looks for its first win on the season. That game marks the first game of a five-game stretch against conference opponents to close out the regular season for the Holden football team.
