The Heritage Christian Lady Warriors rebounded from a tough loss Monday night by battling their way to a tough four set victory at home Tuesday evening over South Haven Christian.

The third set completely belonged to South Haven, as they jumped out to an early lead and held off the Lady Warriors to win the set 25-21, closing the match to two sets to one.
However, any thoughts of a South Haven match rally were quickly dispatched by HCA, as the Lady Warriors jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the 4th set. Heritage then rolled through the set to close out the set with a 25-18 win.
The Lady Warriors had big nights from freshmen Lexie Crisp and Cami Nelson. Skyler Crisp and Allie Schluckebier also were solid throughout the night for Heritage Christian.
