It was shutout time for the Eagle volleyballers.
To begin the week, Cedar Park Christian battled Bush for a 3-0 win. Seniors Candice Whipple and Meg Greenfield both contributed four aces, while sophomore Mattie Shelford added 13 kills.
With a bit more competition on Wednesday against Forest Ridge, the Eagles still persevered for a 3-0 win. Lyndsay Palmer had 12 assists and seven aces, while Kayla Zacharias added 24 assists.
In a disappointing match for the Eagles, Bush came on the field to win the ball and win the game. With an early goal from Bush in the 15th minute, Cedar Park never recovered and let three more go by for a 4-0 loss.
In the final game of the week against Forest Ridge, Cedar Park’s girls came out to win, and win big.
Freshman Cassie McFadden lit up the field with two early unassisted goals in the 18th and 31st minutes. Seconds later, senior Hannah McPhee added one more assisted Carly Grant, but only seconds later, Forest Ridge scored off a corner kick.
In the 60th and 72nd minutes, Morgan Green and Alyssa Lundberg added the last unassisted goals of the evening to leave with a 5-1 victory.
The Eagles are already in the playoffs, but have one last league game to play this week. Junior and team captain Anna Barrett states, “Physically, we need to stay sharp and keep doing what we’re doing to win, and not get sloppy in our technical play. Mentally, we need to maintain our focus at practices and during these games as they get harder.”
