SCISA State Champions!

SCA Wins Second Straight Volleyball Title!
Spartanburg Christian Academy made it back-to-back SCISA 2A state volleyball titles with a 3-1 victory against Holly Hill Academy on Tuesday night at Heathwood Hall in Columbia.
The Warriors (35-5) took the first game 25-7 before dropping a 25-22 decision in Game 2. SCA rebounded with 25-10 and 25-23 wins in the third and fourth games, respectively. It rallied from a 21-16 deficit in Game 4 to claim the match.
“That’s the trademark of this team,” Warriors coach Monica Fain said. “Our middle hitters Allison Gaminde and Kallie Hall played great. Allison, as a senior, showed great leadership on the floor. We were down and never quit.”
Fain said that Gaminde and Hall led the team in kills, while Tinsley Fain was the leader in assists and serves. Gaminde said pulling out the win was due to staying collected.
“It’s just amazing. I couldn’t ask for anything better,” she said. “We never stopped pushing and had to make sure we calmed ourselves down, smiled and just had fun.”
Senior outside hitter Taylor Shilling said staying focused gave the Warriors the drive to rally.
“It was pretty tough, but I don’t think we were ever worried,” she said. “We just appreciate that all our hard work has paid off.”
“This team has never stopped playing,” Fain added. “Whether they are up or down, they have always continued to play start to finish. That’s what they did tonight. It was a team effort.”
