Trinity wins Endless Summer Tournament

The three-time defending GISA state champion Trinity Christian Lady Lions continued to surge ahead to start the 2014 volleyball season by winning the Endless Summer preseason tournament held at Dominion Christian.

Despite losing twice in the tournament, Trinity capture its third straight Endless Summer Tournament crown and second straight event to start the year after winning the Capital City Classic in Montgomery to open the season.

Trinity worked its way through pool play, defeating Young Americans (29-27, 25-22) in the tournament finals.

'Our strength to this point has been our attack, with the team having a .300 kill percentage. They played the best defense we've seen all year, making us work for every point,' said Trinity head coach Joe Camp. In the finals, junior Frances Hutcheson finished with 9 kills, and Cheyenne Hayes had 17 digs.

Juniors Katie Jones and Kelsey Richards combined for 12 and 11 digs, respectively, to pace Trinity's back line.

Senior Hannah Simonton finished with a 2.67 passing average and junior Peyton Lohlen had seven key points.

'They pushed us hard, and we responded well,' Camp said.

The Lady Lions regrouped after an early 27-25, 25-23 loss to Loganville in pool play.

However, Trinity regrouped and finished with a 6-2 record in pool play.

Trinity breezed past Bethlehem 25-7, 25-11. Harvester 25-9, 25-12 and Community Christian 25-16, 25-15.

Junior Chasey Mitchell had six kills in the win against Bethlehem. Regam Lohlen added 1 aces against Harvester.

Cheyenne Hayes added seven kills and Ashley Caldwell added six against Community. The semifinals was a rematch of last year's AAA GISA finals with Trinity winning 25-13, 23-25 and 15-4.

Hayes had 11 kills and Caldwell 9.

Mandy Price added 10 digs and Lohlen 26 assists.
