TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Aucilla Christian is 10 and 0 on the year. They haven't lost a set all season long.

Facing North Florida Christian Thursday night, Jenna Lindsey has good play at the net and Aucilla leads three nothing.

Later, Maddie Drawdy is deadly on the outside and the attack can't be handled.

Lady Warriors cruise and stay perfect on the year.

The Chiles Timberwolves are hosting Leon, a team that hasn't lost to a local team since 2015.

Leon took the first two sets.

In the third, Chiles took control and Brooke Lent is having a day with 20 kills on the night. Chiles takes the third set, forcing a fourth.

Later, a miscue by Leon seals it up 25 to 22 and Chiles takes the fourth set.

It's the first time since 2017 Leon has been pushed to five by a local team.

In the fifth set, Cailin Demps, the Junior with the kill, takes over.

Leon takes the fifth set 15-8. A great match for two good teams.

"The fight we saw was something that we didn't really know we had yet because we had such a limited season and limited players and limited practices so it was great for us to come out and start putting pieces together finally," said Kaitlin Jahn, the head volleyball coach at Chiles.

"One week ago we faced them," said Angie Strickland, the Leon head volleyball coach. "We hadn't played anybody since then. We had plenty of time to prepare so there was no excuse, but I'm very proud of our team for pulling it out and executing in the fifth set."
