Christopher Newport and Salisbury will meet for the CAC Championship on Saturday after collecting semifinal victories on Thursday night. The top-seeded Captains defeated fourth-seeded Marymount 3-1, while second-seeded Salisbury edged third-seeded Mary Washington 3-2 in a back-and-forth showdown.
The Captains were led by Brianna Sutton's career-high 19 kills on their way to the four-set win. Christopher Newport (23-12) earned home court advantage throughout the CAC playoffs with a perfect 8-0 regular season record, and will host the Sea Gulls (29-4) at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Freeman Center.
Salisbury will be looking for its third straight CAC crown and sixth in the last seven years, and enter Saturday riding a 10-match winning streak. Tam Weems and Julie Poston recorded 16 kills to pace the Sea Gulls over the Eagles.
