The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg volleyball team continues to improve. The junior varsity squad has added wins over Nelson County Baptist and Madison Christian Academy, making their record 3-1. The varsity squad (0-6), which includes several JV players, hasn’t quite come together yet, but the signs are all there.
The Lady Rams hosted Nelson County Baptist on Nov. 23 at Lawrenceburg United Methodist Church. In the JV match, CAL was resilient, winning several points on long rallies and defeating Nelson County 2-0.
In the first game, the teams stayed within four points through the first five servers. Then CAL’s Shaylyn Burton served and put the Lady Rams ahead for good, winning 21-12. In the second game, the Lady Rams started slow but came together, winning the match, 21-12, on the serve of Brette Elliott, who was fifth in the rotation. Nancy Lee Holt, second in the CAL rotation, held serve for six points, putting the Lady Rams ahead for the first time.
In the varsity match, the undefeated Lady Eagles dominated, beating CAL 2-0. The Lady Eagles scored most of their points on aces, with hard serves that the Lady Rams could not return. Nelson County won the first game 25-7 and the second game 25-8.
The Madison Christian Academy Lady Knights visited CAL on Dec. 3. In the first match, the JV team took control early on Shaylyn Burton’s serve and never let up the pressure, winning the first game 21-10. In the second game, the Lady Knights were able to take the lead on their third serve and pulled away, winning 21-11.
The tie-breaker started to look like an easy win for the Lady Knights, leading 8-2 after two servers each. Then Brette Elliott brought the Lady Rams within one, 11-10. With the game tied at 13, the serve went back to Shaylyn Burton and the Lady Rams scored the last two points, winning the third game 15-13. The visiting Lady Knights, however, used a completely different group of players for their varsity squad and beat the Lady Rams 2-0. Madison rolled to a 25-3, 25-7 win.
On Saturday, the Lady Rams played the Cumberland Christian Home Educators at the Methodist church. In the first game, CCHE jumped to a 17-3 lead on the way to a 25-9 win. In the second game, the teams were tied at 12, but the Lady Rams couldn’t maintain their intensity as the Lady Hawks seemed to kick it into another gear. CCHE won the second game 25-15, and the match 2-0.
The Lady Rams will host Grace Academy on Friday, Dec. 10, at Lawrenceburg United Methodist Church. The first game will start at 6:00pm.
