Country Christian opens league play with win
The Country Christian volleyball team has overcome a few bumps in the road already this season, but opened its league schedule Sept. 21 with a 3-0 over Southwest Christian.
The Cougars opened with losses to Joseph and North Douglas to start the season, then had to deal with a COVID-19 issue that forced quarantine of players and coaches. But that's behind them and the Cougars opened on the road at Southwest Christian.
"We made a great showing with seniors Lizzy Grandle and Lanie Barden leading the team to a 25-12,25-8,25-6, victory," said coach Cara Grandle. "McKenzie Syphard held her own in the middle against Southwest's best."
After battling North Clackamas Christian on Sept. 24, the Cougars (1-0, 1-2 overall) continue Sept. 28 and 30 with home action against Damascus Christian and Valor Christian, respectively. Match time is 6 p.m. for both.
