Cleveland Christian School traveled up the road to Knoxville for an SCAA volleyball tri-match Friday evening with host school Knoxville Christian and Apostolic Knoxville, with the Lady Crusaders earning a split.

CCS blanked the hosts 3-0 before falling to Apostlistic 2-0.

In match one, the Lady Crusaders (6-12) played solid volleyball and made quick work of Knoxville Christian 25-20, 25-17, 25-22.

“I’m proud of my team tonight. The girls came ready to play and it showed in the first match. Acacia (Thompson) and Hope (Nix) combined for eight kills and 12 assists respectively,” said coach John Mathis after the matches.

The Crusaders’ second match didn’t go as hoped. After losing 25-15, CCS never recovered and lost the second game 25-13.

“Although we came out on the losing end to a quality team, we did have some of our best volleys of the season against Apostolic tonight,” said Mathis.

On the evening, Acacia Thompson had a combined 12 kills, five aces, three digs and a block. Jennifer Corbitt had four aces, four kills and two digs. Hope Nix had 17 assists and a kill.
