Christian Academy School System | Christian Academy of Indiana | 2017 Volleyball | Regional Champions
On Saturday, the Lady Warriors took to the court in the first ever 2A Regional Tournament at Mitchell High School. CAI would have to get through two teams in order to take home their 5th consecutive Regional Title. For the first time, the Warriors have had to face tough 2A competition throughout their quest for the State Finals. Saturday certainly presented another challenge. First the Warriors faced North Decatur. Despite some pushback in the first and third sets, CAI earned the 3-0 win over the Chargers (25-18, 25-8, 25-19). In the Championship match, the Warriors faced Mater Dei for the first time since their loss to the Wildcats in 2016. The Wildcats took the first set 22-25, but your Warriors battled back and took the next three sets (25-15, 25-18, 27 – 25) from the Wildcats. This marks the first time a CAI team has taken home the 2A Regional title! The Warriors were led by two seniors throughout the day. Nicole Collins showed tremendous effort, putting up big numbers in the back row on defense with 27 digs for her team. Alli Stumler continued her strong play all-around, with 30 digs of her own and 51 kills as well. The Warriors move on to face Covenant Christian on Saturday in the Semi-State match. The game will take place at Jasper High School (1600 ST. Charles Street Jasper, IN) at 4 p.m.
