Nov. 23, 2011 —     Kentucky Christian University volleyball lost last week to Maranatha Baptist, ending a strong year for the Lady Knights.

    KCU began the next round of pool play by taking on 10th-seeded Florida Christian. The Lady Knights cruised through the match, winning in straight sets, 3-0.

    They weren’t so lucky in the next game.

    KCU was dispatched by second-seeded Marantha Baptist, 3-0, ending 2011 for the Lady Knights.

    Kentucky Christian wrapped up the year with a final record of 31-11 and a Division II, Mideast Region Championship.
