Located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri with a junior high and high school enrollment of 52, the Eagles of Eagle Ridge Christian School have been flying under the radar for years. Competing in the Missouri Christian School Athletic Association, the Eagles are seeking their fifth state championship title in-a-row. With only one returning starting senior this season, Head Coach Kristen Martin is hopeful they can continue their dominant run.

The Eagles have been experiencing success since 2016 when they won their first of four consecutive state titles. Over the past four years, they have compiled a 123-11-1 record which includes: three undefeated conference regular seasons, three conference tournament champions, and four state titles. 

Already off to a hot start this season with a 3-0 record, the Eagles have been crushing their competition so far. Averaging 10.3 kills/set, 5.2 aces/set, and 24.9 digs/set, the Eagles are primed to finish on top again this season.

Three different players have contributed a lot to the Eagles' success: Sydney Gartman, Rachel Margrabe, and Jasmine Brown.
