It was a battle between 2A and 5A on Monday night with 5A Notre Dame Prep outlasting the 2A Scottsdale Christian Academy Eagles in an epic 5 set match, 3-2. The crowd was electric and loud as the The Eagles, who had been on Fall Break the week before came out a bit sluggish losing the first two sets. The Eagles battled back to win the 3rd and 4th sets before falling to the Saints 19-21 in set 5.
The Eagles were led by Senior Taylor Raiola who had a game high of 32 kills with .289 hitting percentage and also had 13 digs on the night. Also contributing for the Eagles was Junior Kylie Lynne with 29 digs, Sophomore Marley Dickerson with 17 digs, Seniors Janna Williams and Caroline Montgomery with 11 and 6 blocks, respectively and Paige Fisher had 2 aces and 29 serving attempts on the night.
Sophomore Setter Lexi Lambert was named Player of the Match leading the team with 44 assists and 18 digs on the night.
The Eagles are back in action tonight on the road against Cicero Prep before their next home game on Thursday against 2018 3A State Champions, Northwest Christian.
