Prep sports wrap: Chrisitan Faith volleyball sweeps Federal Way in non-leaguer
The best volleyball team in Federal Way might be the smallest high school in the city. The Christian Faith Eagles, a Class B private school, continued their impressive early-season by sweeping the Class 4A Federal Way Eagles Saturday in a non-league contest.
Christian Faith, who finished ninth at last year's Class B State Volleyball Tournament, won 25-23, 25-22, 25-18, over Federal Way. Christian Faith got an impressive day from outside hitter Kendra Ireigbe, who led the Eagles with 11 kills and 3.5 blocks. Mackenzie Carroll finished with six kills and 11 digs, setter Amanda Tofaeono had 22 assists, 11 digs and three kills and Malia Cabiles chipped in five kills and 11 digs.
Christian Faith proved they would be a solid team during the preseason when they finished 11th out of 32 teams at the Yakima Sundome Festival earlier this month. At the tournament, Christian Faith won games from North Kitsap, Thorp, Davis, Cedar Park and Kennewick.
The loss dropped Federal Way to 2-2 on the season. The Eagles also were swept by Auburn on Thursday, 25-21, 25-19, 25-17. Federal Way got nine kills from Carly Bottemiller and Autisia Westerlund and 22 assists frm Luaipou Lologo.
