The Country Christian Cougars made a valiant run in 1A volleyball playoffs last week in Redmond. On Friday, Nov. 8, they beat first-ranked Lowell 3-1, with set scores of 25-19, 23-25, 25-20 and 25-19.
Just hours later, the Cougars faced the Condon/Wheeler Knights in the semifinals. The Knights swept the game 3-0. Set scores were 25-18, 25-11 and 25-16.
Though the Cougars didnt make it to the final, they still had one more playoff game, which would either land them in third or fifth place. On Saturday, Nov. 9, they played Dufur. The teams were extremely well matched, but Dufur came away with the win 3-1, with set scores of 25-21, 19-25, 25-18 and 25-22.
Country Christian brought home the fifth place trophy. It was a strong season for the Cougars. The team is mostly made up of sophomores and juniors. Adding this years experience to the pot should put them in a good spot for next year.
