---- — The Zionsville volleyball team knew they had a tough challenge Thursday, Sept. 5 when they traveled to Noblesville to take on the Millers. Noblesville proved to be the Eagles toughest opponent to date, handing the Eagles their first loss of the season, 3-0 (25-21, 25-13, 25-23). "Serves were the big difference," Zionsville head coach Dawn Jones said. "We are just a terrible serving team. We try and try to practice it and be consistent, and I don't know what it is at the moment. We are going to continue to practice hard and fix it." In game one, Zionsville was in front in a close game, taking a 12-9 lead. After the Millers tied it at 12, the Eagles jumped back in front 15-12, but couldn't shake the Millers, who tied the scored at 17. The Millers took their first lead of the game at 19-18 and after Zionsville tied the game at 19, the Millers scored the next two points and never were tied or trailed again.
