Covenant volleyball team defeats Frisco Legacy

The Colleyville Covenant Christian volleyball team defeated Frisco Legacy this past Thursday 3-2 on the road in Frisco.

It was a see-saw affair of sorts, one that saw Covenant Christian jump out to a 25-20 lead and then drop its next game by a score of 25-11.

Covenant rebounded with a 25-15 victory in the third game, and then lost a hard-fought fourth game by a score of 28-26 to send it to a decisive final game.

The Lady Cougars won the fifth game 15-13 to earn the victory over Legacy.
