CONGRATULATIONS to our Lady Warrior Volleyball team as they are semi-state champions and have earned the right to play for the state championship this coming Saturday, November 8, at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Following is some pertinent information you will need to know:
- Tickets for the state championship game will be on sale in the athletic office on Wednesday, November 5, from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Tickets are $10. We only have 200 tickets, so it is first come first served. If you do not buy a ticket now, you will have to buy one at Ball State the day of the game.
- There will be two fan buses leaving Saturday morning at 7 a.m. sharp from CAI. This is limited to the first 70 people to register. When you buy a ticket Wednesday, you can register for the fan bus at that time. You have to buy a ticket to get a seat on the fan bus. Once you sign up, you will receive a permission slip that you will need Saturday morning or you will not be permitted on the bus.
- This Thursday, November 6, will be a spirit day (Disney Day), and this Friday, November 7, will be a blue-gold day.
- Friday morning our team will be leaving for Muncie at 9 a.m. We will have a police/fire escort as we travel to state. I encourage all our fans and families to be here at school Friday morning as we will attempt to “line the drive” and show our support for the Lady Warriors. We want fans, families and friends lining Academy Drive with signs, posters, etc… as the girls leave. My assistants will be there with instruction Friday morning. Bring your own signs, posters, air horns, etc…
- A big “THANK YOU” to Insulated Roofing Contractors who will be sponsoring fan towels for everyone who comes to the game Saturday. It will be a blue out (WEAR BLUE), and everyone will receive a #STATEBOUND rally towel at the game.
This a momentous event for our school and community. CAI is very proud of all our student-athletes and the families and communities we represent. It is crucial that we get behind our ladies and encourage them as they attempt to do something that has never been done in the history of our school. No matter the outcome, we hold true to our motto, “running for the incorruptible prize” as we strive to reach our goal with the love and message of Christ Jesus. We hope to see everyone on Saturday.
