CHARLOTTESVILLE — There were tears before the match and toward the end of the match.

In between, it was all smiles as the Eastern Hancock volleyball team cruised to its 14th-straight victory Tuesday with a sweep of rival Knightstown.

The Royals trailed only once — at 4-3 of the second set — and finished with a 25-22, 25-18, 25-17 win.

Heading into Saturday’s Hancock County Volleyball Tourney, also at EH, the Class 2A Royals’ current win streak includes victories over Class A No. 9 Hauser and defending Class A state champ and No. 6-ranked Wes-Del.

“I think expectations were high, but I don’t think we expected to be this good,” EH senior setter Jordian Eastes said. “To beat Hauser and Wes-Del in a matter of two weeks, I don’t think anybody imagined that.”
