The Kingwood Christian Lions’ junior varsity volleyball squad continued its impressive streak, moving to 15-0 in match play on the season after capturing the Kingwood Rug Rat Junior Tournament Sept. 14.
The Lions faced stiff competition in the single-elimination tournament, taking down Brooklane, Coosa Valley, Cornerstone, Tuscaloosa Christian, respectively, before defeating Edgewood in the finals.
The Lions never lost a set throughout the tournament, winning 12 sets. The closest the Lions came to losing came against Tuscaloosa Christian, as they went down 10-0 in the second set before coming back to win, 25-16.
Head coach Tony Boyd said he was proud of the effort.
“The girls had fun,” he said. “They’re a tight-knit group. We only have one sub, so they have to be in shape. It’s unique.”
Kingwood’s Kathryn Boyd was named the tournament MVP, with 39 kills and 40 aces. Kirsten Boyd was named to the All-Tournament team.
The Lions will take on Pickens Academy at home Sept. 19.
