On Tuesday, September 4, the SPA volleyball program hosted their first home matches of the season against St. Croix Lutheran Crusaders. The afternoon got started with a great comeback by the C team who were down 14-7 in the third set when Karla Garcia '21 ran off nine straight serves to help rally the team to a victory.

In the varsity match, the Spartans started a little sluggish and fell behind 7-1 in set one. SPA battled back and eventually earned a 25-22 win with a big kill on set point from Kathleen Bishop '20. The team then dominated set two with tough serving, great defense, and timely hitting, winning 25-16. In the final set, St. Croix Lutheran fought back and took an early lead. The Crusaders held on to the moment until the score was 22-18 and Arie Walker '20 led a great comeback with a six-point serving run to scrap out a 25-23 win.

Next up: The Spartans will play on Friday, September 14 against the rival Blake Bears in their home Briggs Gymnasium  -- go SPA!
