Senior Abigail Cima lined up for an ace against Community Christian Academy. Cima's high school volleyball career has been defined by her kills and aces.

DRAFFENVILLE -- The Lady Eagles of Christian Fellowship ended their season 3-1 in the final week of volleyball action.

A trip to University Heights Monday proved to be a disappointment for the ladies with a loss in four sets. The Lady Eagles took the first set 25-17, but the Lady Blazers owned the next three sets (25-18, 25-13, 25-17).

CFS did not take the loss well and came back Tuesday evening taking the Lady Warriors of Community Christian in three quick sets (25-17, 25-18, 25-11).

Senior Abigail Cima landed 14 kills against the Lady Warriors, and freshman Lillian Burnett came in strong with eight.

Senior Emma Alexander was a vital part of the offense with 23 assists for the game. Emma Fletcher was strong on defense with 12 digs for the Lady Eagles. Fletcher has one more year with the Lady Eagles.

CFS went on to take their final regular season wins Saturday against Caldwell County and Warren East. The ladies defeated Caldwell County in three sets (25-18, 25-20, 25-22) and then took the second matchup with Warren East in four sets (27-25, 23-25, 25-22, 25-22).

Alexander and Cima again were strong leaders on the court for the Lady Eagles. Alexander set up 25 assists in the game against Caldwell County and another 36 against Warren East. Cima had 17 kills for points against Caldwell County and turned around racking up 23 in the game against Warren East.
