Faith Academy Lady Knights’ Volleyball Season Comes to an Exciting End

The excitement ran high for the Faith Academy Lady Knights volleyball team last weekend at Castle Hills in San Antonio in their run for the TAPPS 1A state championship.  On Friday, 10/31, they advanced to the regional round by sweeping Houston Family Christian in three games for the area title.  The scores were 25-21, 25-17, and 25-15.
