We spoke with Eastside head coach about the team's mindset entering the playoffs and the growth of the team from the beginning of the season until now.

Eagles poised to be dangerous seed in the playoffs

Eastside completed a sweep of Spalding in a doubleheader at home on Thursday to give the Eagles a shot at obtaining a No. 3 seed in the state playoffs at minimum.
