Although weather conditions only allowed the Faith Academy Lady Knights' volleyball team to have one game last week, they came out on top on the road to retain an unbeaten record in district play.
Faith traveled to Cypress Covenant for their fourth district match of the year and started out on fire, allowing only 10 points to the hosts.
"We played clean the first two (sets) against Covenant and didn't let them have much with our serving pressure," head coach Josh McLain explained. "It was an improvement to what our play has been in district thus far."
However, the Patriots bounced back for a 16-point third set but it still was not enough to topple the Lady Knights who improved their overall record to 20-6-1 with a showdown with the Sealy Lady Tigers next on their schedule earlier this week.
Both junior high teams also grabbed wins over Cypress Covenant with the blue team winning 2-1 (25-12, 21-25, 15-9) and the white team coming out on top, 2-0 (25-19, 25-16).
"We are working on playing cleaner volleyball which is vital to our success. We will have to play as a team, smart and unselfish," McLain said of the team's outlook moving forward. "We finish the week against Southwest Christian which is a district match. They are improved from last season but we just have to continue to be us, minus the errors, and we will be fine."
