Central Arkansas Christian’s volleyball squad moved to 7-2 overall and 4-1 in 1A-4A District 7 play with Monday’s three-set win over Episcopal Collegiate.
“We had a pretty good serve-receive game,” coach Lynn Brown said. “We were able to execute and do well. We had quite a few serving errors, but overall it was good.”
CAC prevailed, 25-17, 25-15, 25-17.
Last week, the Lady Mustangs split a pair of district matches, beating Joe T. Robinson, 25-12, 25-18, 25-18; and falling at Baptist Prep, 25-16, 25-20, 25-20.
“We lost the second game, 25-20, and we had five missed serves,” Brown said of the Baptist match. “We had a bunch of unforced errors and made mistakes we don’t normally make. And they’re a good team. We were in the lead in the last game and they came back and took over. We just couldn’t quite finish it.
“We’re looking forward to playing them again at our place.”
She had said earlier that Baptist had historically given the Lady Mustangs fits on the road.
“The ceiling there is really low, and it’s kind of a different environment for us, but that really shouldn’t matter,” she said. “It’s always a good, loud environment.”
CAC, which played Perryville on Tuesday, will visit Conway St. Joseph (4-5 at press time) on Thursday and play host to Mayflower (2-2) on Monday, Sept. 18. Both are District 7 matches.
“We played St. Joe at Spikefest and won in three, so we know a little about them,” Brown said. “We were missing some players, so it’ll be a little different this time.”
