Forest Lake Christian’s varsity girls volleyball team recovered from Friday’s loss at Woodland Christian by winning at home 3-0 Tuesday against Sacramento Waldorf, 25-14, 25-13, 25-18.

Woodland Christian’s Cardinals handed the Falcons their first loss 3-1 Friday to earn a tie with the Falcons for first place in the Central Valley Christian League.

Teresa Reed led FLC Tuesday with eight kills and a pair of blocks and Shelby Lowe contributed six kills.

Setters Torrey Haddad and Kim D’Antonio each totaled five kills. D’Antonio led in assists with 20, and Haddad racked up 17.

Bethany Huusfeldt added four kills.

“It was a good all-around kind of win,” Forest Lake Christian coach Travis Smith said. “We’re back on track.”

The final match for the Falcons (11-2 overall, 8-1 CVCL) before next week’s CVCL tournament is at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Vacaville Christian. They will be without Lowe and Kelsey Andersson.

Forest Lake Christian, which was ranked No. 1 in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V power ratings which were released last week, will likely have to beat Woodland Christian in the CVCL tournament to maintain the No. 1 seed entering the playoffs.

“That’s huge,” said Smith, assuming his Falcons meet Woodland Christian in the championship game of the tournament. “Because whoever loses that match is going to have to travel down to probably Turlock. That’s a terrible journey, a tough gym to play in, and they’re a good team.”

The CVCL tournament begins Tuesday and ends Oct. 27.
