The Crusaders are off to a solid start after some early season tournaments and as of Aug. 25th, the team is 9-4 overall on the young season. This year's team, like many other squads from the last decade, has one thing in mind: State Championship.
Concordia's Volleyball team is loaded with talent this season (again) and has the talent to take the title. The team has several players already signed/committed to play in college, with many more still being actively recruited.
Led by senior outside hitters, Sophia Keene (Baylor University) and Sydney Whitfield (Liberty University), senior setters running the offense, Addy Polk (St. Louis University) and Anna Schatz (undecided), many talented blockers and defensive specialists making opponents scoring difficult, the Crusaders are confident they can play with any team in Texas.
Since 2014, the Crusaders have reached at least the State Final Four in each season with a title in 2016 and a runner-up in 2018. Before beginning district play on Sept. 21st, Concordia will compete in two more tournaments as well as face off again several non-district opponents such as The Woodlands, Oak Ridge, and Episcopal. Good luck ladies on your season!
