The third edition of the Power Series taking place around the Southeastern parts of Michigan took place on Saturday, with one of the featured groupings competing at Lake Orion High School.

The Dragons hosted Eisenhower, Marian and Stoney Creek in a showcase of four solid D1 contenders.

Coming into this week No. 14 in our D1 rankings, the Eisenhower Eagles showed that they may need to move up by beating all three teams in two sets.

“It’s a definite confidence booster for us,” Eisenhower coach Caitlin Maloney said. “Anything is possible for us and the girls really needed this to get that confidence up and believe in themselves that they can compete with anyone. It was really good to see everything come together and have a total team effort.”

Ike avenged a previous loss to No. 13 Lake Orion with a 25-18, 25-19 victory on Saturday. They also bested No. 7 Stoney Creek, 25-19, 25-16, while topping No. 2 Marian as well, 26-24, 25-22.

“We have struggled this season to finish games and (Saturday) we did that,” Maloney said. “We had some struggles at times during the sets, but when it was time to put them away, we did that.”
