Country Christian continues volleyball run
The Country Christian volleyball team is finding its groove at just the right time. It won its own tournament on Oct. 2 and then added another league win to its tally on Oct. 5.
The Cougars battled Willamette Valley Christian in the championship game of their own Cougar Classic, managing to win the match in two sets.
They carried that momentum into the week, winning a hard-fought five-setter against Open Door Christian Academy, 25-21, 24-26, 9-25, 25-18, and 15-7.
"The team really worked as a unit. They found a grit and mental toughness that will be necessary as they come up against two big hitting teams next week," coach Cara Grandle said. "Annie Bafford and McKenzie Syphard hit smart, generating momentum for the win. They were fed by great defense and passing from the rest of the team. This really was a group win. All players contributed in clutch moments and all of them showed tenacity and heart."
With the Tuesday win, Country Christian now sits at 3-2 in league play (5-4 overall).
