The 2013 Barclay College Bears volleyball schedule has been anything but easy over their first six games, including two NCCAA Division II top ten opponents last week. This weekend, however, there was no denying them their first victories of the season.
On Friday night, the Bears made the long trek to Florissant, Missouri to take on St. Louis Christian College in an MCCC road match. From the beginning, it was clear that the Lady Soldiers were simply out-matched by the Bears as BC won in straight sets, 25-5, 25-8, and 25-9, for their first win of the season.
Saturday, on the other hand, was a different story as Central Christian College of the Bible (Moberly, MO) welcomed the Bears to town. Last year the Bears played two five-set thrillers with the Saints, and this year was no different. The Bears came out sluggish, dropping two of the first three sets, before finishing with a bang, 22-25, 25-19, 21-25, 25-17, and 15-9.
Next up for the Bears (2-6, 2-1) is a date at NCAA Division II Newman University (Wichita, KS) on Tuesday at 7:00 PM CST.
