PCA JV Volleyball Sweeps Chelsea Academy in Conference Opener!

In the opening game for the newly established Shenandoah Christian Conference, our JV Volleyball team showed dominance against Chelsea’s Academy’s JV team. 

The Lions traveled out to Front Royal to face Chelsea in their home gym. Chelsea’s team was more numerous and considerably taller than our PCA squad, but quickly learned that our Lions may be small, but they are fierce! PCA pulled ahead early in the first set on the strength of their well trained serves. Julianna (S), Rachel (OH), and Myra (Lib) all quickly racked up points with serving runs before Chelsea had a chance to strike back. 

PCA closed out the first set 25-14 and kept the pressure on during the second set. Chelsea’s team tried to rally back but the serving strength of the Lions was too much for the Front Royal team. Providence threw down ace after ace as the score ran ahead. Then with game point on the line, Team Captain Julianna headed for the service line and decided to use the expansive back court of Chelsea’s gym to try something she’s never done in competition. She took two steps and launched into a powerful topspin jump-serve that smacked off Chelsea’s court before half the team could even flinch! With a score of 25-17, that final Ace sealed the set, game, and first conference appearance for our Lions. If the Lions can continue playing like this, it should prove to be a very interesting season.

Please come join us on Tuesday 9/14 as the Lions host Covenant Christian Academy’s Golden Eagles in a showdown of (friendly) rival schools.

Let’s Go Lions!
