Just a few volleys short
Getting there was all the fun for Trinity Christian College’s volleyball team as far as the NAIA Championship Tournament was concerned.
The Trolls took their second and third foes to the limit, but dropped all three matches in Sioux City, Iowa. They opened with a three-set loss to Concordia (Calif.), the defending NAIA champion.
The 25-11, 26-24, 25-21 margin was hopeful in one respect: Trinity played the champs evenly in the second set, leading 14-8 before the Eagles flew back and tied it at 19-all. It went to 24-all before Concordia could win two points in succession to take the set. The Eagles used the momentum to run off to a 15-6 lead in the third set and take the match.
