Lady Eagles are now the 2017 District Champions and are ready to compete in the MHSAA Regional competition this upcoming week.
Their district foe, Rudolf Steiner, put up a good fight on every serve. The lady Eagles did more and swept the match to win the District trophy.
Even though winning is great, ultimately it is about glorifying God in volleyball and in everything we do. The Lady Eagles write “for Him” under their jersey sleeves every game to remind them who they are playing for.
When asked what “for Him” meant to the Lady Eagles, Izzy Racho (11) said, “It reminds us that we’re playing for the glory of God and not just to win. Everything we are doing on the court is for Him.”
Lady Eagle freshman Dariya Roi (9) is “honored and blessed to be part
of this team. I am only a freshman and still get playing time.”
Being a freshman may be hard, but recovering from an injury is harder. Moriah Willis (12) broke her scaphoid bone in her hand in March. It has taken until now for her to recover and return to the team and play at full strength.”It was hard to work my way back on the court, after my injury , but here we are playing for each other and ‘for Him’”.
Come and support your Lady Eagles as they face Camden-Frontier on Tuesday, November 7th at 6:30 at Lansing Christian High School located at 3405 Belle Chase Blvd, Lansing, MI 48911.
