Girls Volleyball return to the 3A State Volleyball Tournament with two 3-0 set sweeps of Liberty Common and Lamar high schools. The girls earned the #8 overall seed compared to the #4 seed they received last season. Set one against Liberty Common proved to be the toughest set of the night as it took a 30-28 score to win. Liberty Common had 3 set points but could not close out Faith.
The Eagles took set two and three in a much tidier fashion and set up a chance to win the region if they could beat Lamar. It took Lamar 5 sets to defeat Liberty Common including being down 2 sets to 1 and having to win 2 straight sets. Faith played three competitive sets with Lamar but still took the match win and advance a return to the Denver Coliseum this Thursday where the Eagles will play Resurection Christian in the first round of the 3A state tournament.
Football marches on
The Eagles reached new heights in football as well, as Faith Christian defeated Kent Denver on Nov. 3 with a score of 9-7. Kent Denver took the opening drive right down the field, aided by two 15 yard Faith penalties, and scored on a 6 yard touchdown run by Seth Lindsay. Both teams exchanged punts through most of the first half until Faith turned a Kent Denver turnover into 3 points to trail at halftime 7-3. Faith used halftime to regroup and took the first drive of the second half 60 yards, ending in a 1 yard David Nagy touchdown.
Faith hung on to the lead until the fourth quarter when Kent Denver put together a drive. Faith was able to stop the SunDevils inside the 10 yard line with 2 minutes on the clock. Kent Denver had 3 points in sight but the FG was wide right.
The Eagles got the final 1st down of the game which allowed them to run out the clock and secure a round of 16 victory. The victory over Kent Denver snaps a steak of defeats dating back to 2009 when Faith last defeated Kent Denver 21-0 in the 2009 State Championship game.
Faith will now take on the top seed Bayfield in the Round of 8, the game is scheduled to be at Faith Christian Friday evening, Nov. 9.
