After starting their season off with losses to The Community Christian School Chargers (Saturday, Aug. 17) and the Dixie County Bears (Tuesday, Aug. 20), the Jefferson County Aucilla Christian Academy Warrior Volleyball team has fought hard to maintain a winning streak throughout this year's season.
After feeling the burn of back-to-back losses at the hands of the Chargers and Bears, the Lady Warriors managed to obtain their first win of the season against the Suwannee High School Bulldogs with a ending score of 3-0 on Friday, Aug. 23.
The Lady Warriors continued to dominate the court in subsequent 3-0 wins against the North Florida Christian Eagles (Tuesday, Aug. 27) and the Wakulla Christian School Saints (Thursday, Aug. 29).
The Warriors would feel another loss, this time at the paws of the Taylor County Bulldogs (3-1) on Tuesday, Sept. 3 before facing off with the Madison County Cowgirls on Thursday, Sept. 5.
