Volleyball Team Wins Labor Day Tournament

The Clearwater Christian College volleyball team hosted their annual Labor Day tournament over the weekend and completed a clean sweep over all of their opponents, winning five straight matches in two days.

Only dropping four sets the entire tournament, the Lady Cougars appear to be picking up where they left off last season when they were NCCAA II National Champions. The Lady Cougars demonstrated maturity and poise as they faced some fierce competition going up against four NAIA scholarship squads, and one NCCAA II school.

According to Coach Denny, “This was a great way to kick off our season. We have a core of players from last year, but several of them will need to step up and contribute more this season. As we continue to play tough competition that will mature us into the team we can be. I was very pleased with the efforts of the team over the weekend.”

Junior Richelle Bucklin and Senior Emma Kile were named to the All-Tournament Team. The Cougars are now 6-0 as they travel to Toccoa Falls next weekend to participate in their NCCAA II annual kickoff tournament.
