Danville Christian ended its regular season on a high note as the Lady Warriors got a big senior night win over Burgin to improve to 11-15 on the year.

Burgin took the first set 25-22 but DCA was able to battle back and take the next two sets in convincing fashion, 25-16 and 25-11. The Bulldogs wouldn’t be put away so easily, however, and battled back to force a fifth set with a 25-20 win in the fourth. In the shortened fifth, the Lady Warriors earned the victory 15-10.

Hannah Ridge, and the Lady Warriors overall, continued their dominance on the serve. As a team, DCA has peaked at 14th in the state in service aces while Ridge has been ranked as high as seventh.
