Brad Boyd called Heritage Christian Academy’s straight set win at Pleasant View, Tenn. ‘a total team effort’ as the Lady Warriors picked up their 15th win of the season. HCA won 25-23, 25-22, 25-15.

The HCA coach said the Lady Warriors played from behind in the first two sets before rallying to capture the momentum and win both in close fashion.

Allie Schluckebier had nine kills at the net and six aces, while freshman Elle Heltsley added five kills and seven aces. Meredith Crunk had six aces, and Emma Kirkman had 21 assists.

The Lady Warriors were also spurred by the return of hitter Lexie Crisp, who returned from an ankle injury with five kills.

Heritage Christian, who sits at No. 5 in this week’s KCAA Power Poll, will host No. 10 Highlands Latin Saturday in their annual Pink Out contest at Warrior Gym.
