Varsity Volleyball Represents Homeschool Sports with Great Success!

blackandgoldOn Saturday August 23rd, the Varsity Crusaders had the opportunity to travel to UNCP for the Black & Gold Tournament. We joined 9 other teams from around the area: Midway, Northwood Temple, Lee County, Purnell Sweet, Grays Creek, Lakewood, Union Pines, Antioch Christian, and West Bladen. Out of the 10 teams attending the tournament we were the only homeschool team, and many people probably counted us out from the beginning.

We quickly proved ourselves as we advanced through pool play, only dropping 2 sets. One to Lakewood and one to Union Pines. At the end of pool play Lakewood was the #1 seed on our side and we were #2, both teams went to the Semi-finals. We were matched up against the #1 seed from the other pool, Lee County. They were a tough opponent and took the first set 12-25. We came back fighting the second set, but near the end Lee got the momentum and won with a score of 18-25.

2014 Intermediate & Advanced Volleyball Camp


The 2014 Crusader Volleyball Camp was a huge success.  The Crusader and Berean programs came together for a week of hard work and sweat.  

Coach Leo Sayles and his staff led the girls to huge improvements in all aspects of their game.  Coach Sayles also inspired the girls to be "all in" in everything they do.  It will be exciting to see all the squads implement the great things they learned during camp.  The Berean varsity and Crusder JV and MS teams will be forces to reckon with!
