The Lady Eagles reached the second round of the state playoffs for the first time in Eastside history after beating Westside at home 3-0 in the playoffs opening round.

Eastside then fell to the state's No. 4 team, Columbus 10-0 on Wednesday, finishing with a 12-7-1 record overall, including 7-1 in region.
