The Kingsway Academy Saints junior girls volleyball team defeated the St. Augustine’s College (SAC) Big Red Machine, and emerged as volleyball champions in the Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools (BAISS).
Entering the playoffs as the second seeded team, the Saints were determined to become victorious. With a win/loss record of 4-2, and having been defeated by SAC and Queen’s College during the regular season, Saints’ captain Ashley Webb said that the team was focussed on paying back their rivals.
“We knew that we could beat them. We just had to keep our head in the game and we did it,” she said.
Coach Juliet Douglas-Sands said that the team was definitely up to the challenge.
“During the playoffs we went up against Queen’s College and defeated them in two sets, which qualified us for the championship game against St. Augustine’s.”
In the championship match, the Big Red Machine got out to an early lead, winning the first set, 27-25.
However, Coach Oswald Moore encouraged the Saints to remain focused. Kingsway Academy was successful in winning the other two sets, 25-18 and 15-11, to capture the championship.
Christia Fowler emerged as the team’s best server for the season, and Webb was named as the Most Valuable Player (MVP).
