It took the first game of the match to get their bearings with the CCS ladies eventually losing 25-14. The Lady Crusaders made an impressive recovery with a strong defensive performance from Junior Savannah Morgan in the second game, but fell 25-22.
“Although we lost the final two games 25-22, 25-12, I was impressed with what I saw. We have a lot of work to do, but not a bad performance tonight all in all,” said coach John Mathis.
Acacia Thompson led all players with two blocks, two kills and a dig. Savannah Morgan had two blocks and an ace. Jennifer Corbitt followed with a dig and an ace.
