From Florida College:
The Women’s Volleyball team has won the United States Corporate Althetic Association (USCAA) National Championship. The No. 1-ranked Lady Falcons beat Spalding University, ranked 6, in the championship game earlier this month in Louisville, KY. This was the fifth time the two teams faced off in the championship game.
Florida came out strong to start the match, winning the first and second set. However, the Lady Golden Eagles competed hard in the third set and were able to hand Florida College their first set loss of the tournament. The Florida College Lady Falcons went on to win the fourth set and defend their title as USCAA Volleyball National Champions.
Florida College was led by junior Kerri Taylor’s 16 kills, and Taylor took home National All-Academic, All-American, and Tournament MVP honors for her performance.
Florida College has won a total of seven USCAA Volleyball National Championships since the year 2000, and Florida College’s Head Coach Donna Parimore said she was not surprised to see Spalding in the championship. When asked how it felt to defend their national title she replied, “They are always very well coached and play strong as a team.”
