Cape Fear Christian Academy’s varsity volleyball team evened its record with a straight sets win over visiting Riverside Christian Academy on Thursday. Individual set scores were 25-20, 25-12 and 27-25.
“Tonight the covering was a lot better,” said Cape Fear Christian coach Paul Hobbs. “We still have some work to do when it comes to covering. But the hits were better. We covered tips better, the overall team is coming together. Everybody on the team is doing their role. I’m impressed with where we’re going. Still a long way to go to be where I want them to be, but I’m happy with the progress so far.”
After the Eagles won the first two sets, the Royals (0-2) rallied late in the third set to take it to extra points, but the Eagles were able to finish off their first three-set match of the season.
Hobbs cited a team effort from the Eagles (2-2) in the win.
“We’ve had to call some players to step up and some to step back a little bit,” Hobbs said. “But the good thing is we have options. That’s what I love about this team. It’s not led by one person or two people. We have a lot of ammunition. So, if one person is struggling, we can call that other person to step up. That’s what’s making us come together really well.”
Cape Fear Christian is at Lee Christian for a tournament on Friday and Saturday.
