WATERLOO — Waterloo Christian put up a fight in what became a thrilling home opener against Cedar Valley Christian Tuesday night, extending a pair of sets into extra points during a narrow defeat, 27-25, 25-21, 26-24.

Cedar Valley Christian improved to 3-3, while Waterloo Christian coach Angela Evans was pleased with her team’s performance for its first time out this season. The Regents (0-1) didn’t win more than 16 points in a set when these teams met a year ago.

Allison White led Waterloo Christian with eight kills and freshman setter Lauren Bergstrom distributed 17 assists. The Regents served at 86 percent and recorded 37 digs, led by 12 apiece from libero Sydney Aronson and junior Amber Smith.

“It was a complete focus on getting the job done,” Evans said. “I’m very excited for them. They’re working hard. As a coach I couldn’t be more proud. We may not have had the victory, but we had a million other successes this evening.”
