Multiple Teams · Volleyball: A Look at the Playoff Picture

This year, their goal remains the same.  They hope to compete for another state title, all to bring glory to God!

The Eagles have been ranked #1 in Class D throughout their season and currently hold a 33-7-2 record. Playoffs will begin Monday at PCA as the Lady Eagles take on Lutheran Westland High School.

Multiple Teams · Playing for a State Championship and for Him


 

By Sophomore Aidan (Yogi) Hing

The Plymouth Christian Academy (PCA) volleyball team enjoyed their last game of the regular season and is preparing for postseason play to bring back another MHSAA state volleyball title.

The last game of the season against Parkway Christian was a stepping stone to prepare them for what lies ahead.

When asked about how they will get ready for the tournament, senior Moriah Willis said, “I’m really confident, and we have a scrimmage on Monday and practice every day next week. I do so much better after a few practices.”

The volleyball team is dedicated to God and working to win a State title once again. 

“We can win if we just play for God and put everything into what we do,” said Caitlin Warnshuis (10).

Head volleyball coach, Darrell Kellogg (D.J.),  always makes sure God comes first. Coach D.J. says “for us, it’s not winning or losing; it’s about how we are improving and glorifying God.”

The volleyball team and the fans are excited about the postseason prospects for PCA.  Many PCA students will show Eagle pride wherever the team plays.  When asked if they were enthusiastic for a winning season, Zach Racho (12) replied: “Of course I am.” Bobby Dotson (9) added, “We will win states”.

The first game of the District Championship is October 30th at 6:00 p.m. in the Butler Gymnasium against Lutheran Westland.  Come and support the Lady Eagles!

Boys Middle School Soccer, Boys Varsity Soccer · Season Recap: Middle School Boys Soccer


Article written by Head Coach Brian Fair:

It was the last game of the season. All year we struggled to make quality passes; placing the ball accurately from foot to foot. But on the last day of the season, in this our final hour… we found each other.

Jesus tells his disciples that “those who hear [his] words… and put them into practice” will be like houses built upon a rock: solid and able to weather the storms of life. (Matthew 7:24-27) In other words, the factor between whether we experience continual crashes in our lives or persistent stability is simply the act of putting God’s word into practice. Practice… practice, practice, practice. And so rain or shine we set out this year towards the repetitive action of executing our desired result when it didn’t count so that when it did matter we’d be ready.

The season started slowly. For our first game we only had eight of the 11 players needed to field a full team. There was only one thing to do: pray. We prayed together after our first game asking God to provide us with what we needed for a full team and asking Him to protect the players we already had from being injured. By the second game we were up to 10 players. When all was said and done our 2017 MS Boys Soccer team consisted of 10 middle school boys, 2 middle school girls and 2 sixth graders; 14 players in all. We looked different than the other MS teams we played but we did have a full team. And you know what else? We didn’t lose one player this year to injury. Not one. God had answered our prayers!
As I look back over this year’s MS Boys Soccer season I am reminded of how aptly the principles we learn in sports apply to life. Principles like practice and prayer. Both were needed this year and I’m sure will be needed many times by our kids during the years that lie ahead.

GO EAGLES!

Eagles News · Wounded Eagles Bow out of Districts


Senior Jack Crawford races after the ball.

By Senior Sarah Hall

Injuries took it’s toll on Wednesday as PCA was knocked out of the Boys Soccer Districts by Greenhills, 3-0. From the opening whistle, the injuries mounted. Sophomore, Aiden Hing, collided with another player, he also took a ball to the face. Junior, Keith Brown, got kneed shortly into the first half. Senior, Emmanuel Ravuri was stepped on, Aaron Vicars, junior, was kicked in the back of the knee, and the kicker (no pun intended), Gavin Goerke, our rookie senior was elbowed in the eye so hard it drew blood. However, he responded like a seasoned veteran. Shortly after taking the blow, he was bandaged and back out on the field.

The return match up with Greenhills less than one week after the “Under the Lights” game resulted in contempt grown from familiarity. Andrew Myers, Senior and Captain, shed some light on it: “Even with low morale from having four injuries in the first half, we were able to hold them off and keep the score better than it was at Under the Lights.”

The boys were really putting their all in for a win. Liam Stein, freshman said: “We really want to win this game!” Max Okolo (12) added, “We definitely underestimated them the first time around at ‘Under The Lights’ but, we’re more prepared now.”

In the end, PCA was not able to overcome the injuries or the offensive surge of the Gryphon’s attack, and lost 3-0.

It was an emotional end to the season for the players and coaches alike. Jeremy Collins (11) summed it up, “We started shaky but we picked it up. We had one last fighting chance. I got to play eighty more minutes with all the seniors and I loved it.”

 

Adam Albrecht (9) sending the ball barreling down the field.

Gavin Goerke (12) rejoins his team after an injury to the head.
