First Spike Out Championship Ever!
CSD Girls Volleyball team wins its first ever Spike Out after so many years of working hard and trying to get its first ever Champion. The girls worked so hard the past few years and earned the honor to be the 1st team from the West to bring home the title.
CSD finished 4-1 in pool play after losing to Maryland Orioles and finished 2nd place in the pool.
In bracket play, the Eagles defeated the other Eagles team from Wash DC, MSSD, 2-0 (25-21 and 25-20). They then advanced to the semifinals to play the host and defending champs who virtually returned almost the whole team from last year. The girls battled and were able to come out soaring on top, defeating the Rangers, 2-1(25-19, 23-25, and 15-13). They then had a redemption match with the Maryland Orioles who they had earlier lost 1-2 (25-11, 24-25, and 14-15). This time the Eagles continued to soar higher and come out on top defeating perennial powerhouse, Maryland by the score of 2-1 (25-19, 27-29, and 15-13). The Eagles want to congratulate the Orioles for making this a very memorable and competitive game where any volleyball fan would enjoy watching.
Congrats to Adele Daniels (So), Brianna Dike (So), and Darriyan Thomas (Sr) for being selected to the 2013 Spike Out All Tournament Team and those three girls know that the 1st place trophy is the ultimate award that they have wanted all along and thank everyone on the team for their contribution in their run to the 1st championship! Without their teammates the championship trophy would not be possible at all.
