This weekend the girl’s volleyball team faced off in a tri-match.

The Lady Royals played Kentucky Christian University on Friday night and beat them 3-1. On Saturday afternoon they played Appalachian Bible College and won 3-0. They fell to Toccoa Falls College later that night 2-3.

On Friday night, Johnson played KCU. They lost the first set and it wasn’t looking good during the second, but JU rallied back from an 18-24 point deficit to win the second set 30-28. This victory gave them the momentum they needed to win the third and fourth sets 25-20 and 25-13 respectively.

The first match on Saturday was against ABC. JU beat ABC 3-0 in hard-fought sets that ended up being 25-17, 25-19 and 25-12 in the end. However, later that night, JU played TFC and fell to them 2-3.

“They played very hard this weekend,” said freshman Niklaus Naekel. “They were very aggressive against Appalachian Bible College. Really showed Johnson spirit.”
