Blazers rally to defeat Grace

The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers dropped the first game but battled back to take the next three in a 3-1 victory over Grace Academy Tuesday in a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference girls volleyball match.

Grace came away with a 25-18 victory in the first game. The Blazers (7-3, 5-2 MDCC) hung on for a 25-23 nail-biter in game two before wrapping up the match with victories of 25-20 and 25-17.

“The first set was a real struggle,” Blazers coach Carole Rosenberry said. “We were having difficulty passing and could not get a kill. In set 2 we jumped out to an early lead but quickly lost it because of passing. We were able to refocus ourselves and pull out the win. With each set, we upped our game for the win.”

Stat leaders for the Blazers were Regan Bard with 20 assists, Kerri Potteiger with four kills, five digs and five aces, Emilee Beam with 10 kills and nine digs, and Ryleigh Timmons with 15 digs.
