The CCS Lady Warriors had a fantastic season. It was a time of adversity and heartache but when all was said and done they had earned many honors and overcome many challenges.
The Warriors finished District at 4-4, missing the state playoffs. But 4-4 means a lot when the only two teams they lost to went on the take second and third place at state.
Through the season, the Lady Warriors suffered three injuries to starters. Despite the injuries the Lady Warriors kept fighting.
Described many times as “young,” the group worked hard and demanded respect from their opponents. Refusing to give up they were one of the few teams all year to force state-runner up Victory Baptist to play four sets.
These young ladies will return the entire team next year, minus senior Abigail Brazeal.
For now, these Lady Warriors have traded in the volleyball for the basketball, which for many of them, is their first love.
In basketball, the Lady Warriors return after a trip last year to the state semifinals.
What stands out about these young ladies the most is their incredible character and love for Jesus. Of course, their not angels, but they care about God, Family, and Team in that order. Their love for the game and each other is something exceptional. The medals and trophies are always nice, but the experience of being a part of a team that plays together and plays together is second to none.
