Cleveland Christian traveled to Polk County for nonconference volleyball action Friday afternoon. The 2 p.m. special start time allowed both schools to have their student bodies present. The Lady Crusaders (6-5) struggled to get in a groove as the Lady Wildcats (12-0) won 25-16, 25-8 and 25-15.
“Polk County proved why they are undefeated this afternoon,” said CCS coach John Mathis following the meeting. “It was a fun environment for our ladies and we can take away a lot from this kind of match. We will go back and prepare for the second half of SCAA competition set to begin Tuesday against Oakwood Christian Academy in Chickamauga, Ga.
“Our back row play was less than impressive this afternoon with the exception of Carrie Claypoole, who remained consistent on defense. We did play well at the net and had several ladies who had multiple blocks in all three games.”
Kelsey Farris continued to show dominance at the net with three blocks, three kills and two aces for the Lady Crusaders. Acacia Thompson had two kills and five assists. Carrie Claypoole had three digs.
