Eastern's soccer season concludes with narrow loss in state playoffs

Although Eastern Alamance suffered a disappointing 2-1 setback to Northern Durham last week in the first round of the NCHSAA 3A state playoffs, which ended the Eagles' season at 13-7 overall, it was another solid year for EAHS. The Eagles, who finished tied for second place in the Mid-State Conference standings, will return numerous key contributors in 2020, including Xzavier Smith (above).
