After a strong showing at their annual Spikefest tournament, the Lady Eagles volleyball team has jumped into the NCCAA II National Top 10. The Lady Eagles started off the tournament with a surprise set one victory over national runner up Maranatha Baptist Bible College. That set win, combined with wins over perrenial power Grace University and regional opponent North Central University served notice that the Lady Eagles are an improved team looking for their first trip to the national tournament since 2003.
Their road to qualification will become clearer this weekend, when the Lady Eagles will travel to Minneapolis, MN, for the Pre-Regional tournament hosted by North Central University. Faith will face region opponents Trinity Bible College, North Central University, and Providence University College. The outcome of those games will give the Lady Eagles a better picture of where they stand and where they need to go in order to secure a trip to Lincoln, IL, in November.
The Lady Eagles next home action will be Saturday, September 14 at 4:00 PM, when they will face conference opponent Central Christian College of the Bible. That game will be part of the annual Homecming festivities. Prior to the game, all alumni are encouraged to participate in the annual alumni scrimmage, set for 2:00 PM in the Nettleton Center.
