NEW ALBANY – Host Christian Academy rallied to outlast Crawford County 25-17, 22-25, 25-27, 25-20, 15-5 Monday night.

Karlyn Denny led the way for the Warriors with 14 kills, six service aces and six digs. Ella Sieman (18) and Ella Peach (15) had 33 assists while Kristen Abbott had eight aces, nine digs and four kills.

“We started strong in the first set,” said CAI coach Chrissy Millen. “With the exception of a service reception rotation, we did well as a team. Midway through the set, second Leah Stevens took us behind the line that Crawford County could not recover from. In the second set we changed our to work on some things and it just didn’t work well for us we’re a young team and we went a bit haywire I’m proud of the girls who fought even after losing 6-15, to come back within reach of winning the set. We lost a tight third set with some untimely late serve errors. However, in the fourth set we had found our rhythm. Junior Karlyn Denny and sophomore Kristen Abbott served so well in that set And senior setter Ella Siekman was putting our hitters in good situations We had the serve to start the fifth set and Abbott made a run to put us up 7-0 With some great swings from Denny, rookie Maycee Hoefler and sophomore Avery Kerr, we didn’t let go and were able to shut it down quickly. While we would have liked not to play five sets tonight, it was a good experience for our young players. Being able to learn how to overcome obstacles so early in the season is going to pay dividends later on.”
