VOLLEYBALL: WCCS repeats undefeated season

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – Warren County Christian School’s girls volleyball team has finished undefeated again.

Already the New Penn Christian Conference regular-season champion, the Lady Lions won the tournament title for the second straight season on Saturday, 25-15, 25-16, 26-24 over Christian Life Academy at Jamestown Bethel Baptist.

For the second straight season, WCCS finished undefeated, 15-0 – losing one “set” all season.

As usual, it was the entire complement of Lions that won it all.

Versatile senior Kaitlin Weidner finished with four service points, nine kills, three blocks, six assists and nine digs, and the only other senior, Megan Cox, also had nine digs.

Allyssa Kerr contributed 15 points, three aces, eight kills and 20 digs, Whitney Poindexter 14 points, seven aces, three kills and two blocks, Caitlin McCall seven points and 13 digs, Dymphee Zortman 10 points, one ace, one kill and 12 digs, Kate Erdman and Hunter Uplinger one kill each, Emily Stowe one ace, Kelsey Kelly two digs, and Desirae Kerr six assists and four digs.

They are a team that’s very dependent on one another, so we really focused on being servants of one another,” said WCCS coach Monica Kerr, whose Lions defeated Meadville Calvary Baptist on Friday in the New-Penn semifinals. “CLA was playing very well, and we had to work hard to get the points we did.”

Kerr scheduled WCCS in tournament play outside the New Penn Christian Conference to keep the Lions humble after finishing undefeated in league last year.

This year, “it was different; there’s a different pressure on you,” she said. “(But) I think there’s a maturity level that we have, with the girls having played together for so long, and that chemistry.”
