The Calvary University Warriors volleyball team fell in straight sets (3-0) to Emmaus Bible College in their eleventh match of the 2018 season. “We received a good education in college volleyball from the #1 team in the nation,” Head Coach Ashley Spicer said. “The players saw the quickness, strength, and size of a terrific team on the other side of the net which will help us continue to prepare for the future.”
The Emmaus Eagles are a strong NCCAA program and proved to be a tough test for the Lady Warriors on Saturday. In the first set, the Warriors came out firing on all cylinders. They strung together several great attacks and gained a lot of momentum. The set went down to the wire with Calvary losing 23-25. The Eagles stepped up their game in the second and third sets and came out roaring from the opening serve. They won both sets in convincing fashion 9-25, 11-25.
Overall, the team continued to gain valuable experience against a high level of competition. “Today showed how far we have come and how much we still have to learn before we can consistently compete at that level,” Coach Spicer said. “Our serve receive has really stepped it up in the past few games against some good serving teams. We just need some answers defensively.”
The team will finish up this homestand on Tuesday night against Kansas Christian College and Manhattan Christian College starting at 5 pm.
