St. James’ Lady Sharks took a disappointing defeat in volleyball against Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach on Aug. 27.

The Saints of Christian Academy ended the game with three wins to St. James’ 0.

Game one was 25-13, St. James’ best game out of the three. St. James’ scores decreased, with game two 25-11 and game three 25-10.

Head coach Lindsay Mayer had a plan for scheduling Christian Academy as her team’s first home game.

“I told my girls I set them up for failure with putting them against a very good team for their first game,” said Mayer. “It was to show them that we are good players but also need a lot of work.”

Courtney Settle had six hits, five service points and three digs.

Mallory Farmer had five hits, four service points and four digs.

Skylar Campbell had the most digs with 10 total, along with six service points.

Christian Academy hosts St. James for a rematch Sept. 10.

Until then, Mayer intends to keep the team motivated.

“My motivation is to stay positive and keep encouraging them to give their best effort,” Mayer said on future matches. “As long as the attitude stays positive then their play will be positive.”
