Lady Warriors defeat Faith Christian to win programs first district championship

Orlando, Fla --

The 2nd seeded Orlando Christian Prep varsity girls volleyball defeated top-seeded Faith Christian Academy 3-1 (25-20, 26-24, 19-25, 25-22) for the Class 2A District 7 championship.

The Lady Warriors jumped out to a two set lead after winning a dramatic second set. After losing the third set, OCP (12-9) did what they were unable to do just 8 days earlier, finish off the Lady Lions in the 4th set on a closing serve by junior Kalyn McIntyre that was never returned back to OCP. 

OCP was led by team captain, senior,  Aalyssa Gunn with 13 completed kills. Setter, senior, Lydia Mascari with 32 assists and sophomore, and outside hitter Madison Hull who was selected the player of the match with 6 completed kills, 10 digs and 11 points on serve.

It was OCP's first District Championship in the history of the OCP volleyball program. The Lady Warriors were seeded 8th in the Class 2A Region 2, which sets up a match against the top-seeded Orangewood Christian School Rams in the Regional Quarterfinals, Tuesday October 25, 7pm. 

Congratulations to Coach Soto, Coach McIntyre, Coach Jacobson, Aalyssa, Lydia, Carlee, Marieva, Ariana, Alana, Kalyn, Alana, Madison, Naiomy and Trinity for accomplishing something that had never been done before. These ladies will be forever remembered as HISTORY MAKERS!


Seniors Close Regular Season With District Opponents

OCP's Varsity Volleyball team is hitting their groove at the right time of the season. The Lady Warriors won 2 of 3 games in 3 consecutive days following postponements due to Hurricane Ian, and have started the final week of the regular season with 2 wins against district opponents.

OCP (10-8) concludes the week and regular season against their third district foe of the week against rival Faith Christian Academy for Senior Night on Thursday October 13. 

Faith Christian and OCP have matched up twice previously this season, splitting the matches 1-1. The first meeting back in early September was controlled by the Lions in their gym 3-0. The second meeting took place in pool play of the Lake Mary Prep invitational. In that match, the Warriors won 2-0 as the match was the second consecutive match for OCP following an exciting 2-1 victory over Merritt Island Christian. 

Both teams sit in the top 2 spots in the FHSAA 2A Region 2 District 7 rankings published by  The top seeds host district games in the 6-team field, including the championship game. An OCP win may go a long way towards giving the Lady Warriors the top seed and home court advantage in districts.

Earlier in the week, the Lady Warriors defeated City of Life Christian Academy for the annual Dig Pink Match 3-1 (29-27, 25-9, 23-25, 25-13). Senior Lydia Mascari led the team with 5 serving aces and 36 assists. Senior Aalyssa Gunn had a team-high 16 kills, along with 18 digs. Junior Kalyn McIntyre had a team-high 39 digs. Sophomore Lilly Lach served a team-high 17 consecutive points, which included 3 aces, in the second set.

The following night, OCP defeated Central Florida Leadership Academy (CFLA) 3-0 (25-5, 25-12, 25-12).  Senior Carlee Cruz had a team-high 8 serving aces and Mascari had a team-high 7 kills.


OCP's Class of 2023 seniors, known as the "Fab 5," are a mix of players that have grown up in the volleyball program and newer contributors. 

Ariana Cintron, defensive specialist, is in her first year at OCP after playing varsity volleyball since her sophomore year at her previous school. Marieva de Paulo Junco, middle, is in her second year at OCP and on the varsity volleyball team. Despite missing significant time last year due to injury, de Paulo Junco has been a steady presence at the net this season.

The trio Cruz (middle), Mascari (setter) and Gunn (outside hitter) have been 4-year varsity players under Head Coach Omar Soto.

Cruz, who also plays softball for OCP along with travel softball, has grown into a confident server and attacker from the middle this season.

Mascari has played in the OCP program for the past 9 years. As the primary setter she has become one the best in Class 2A this season. She averages 8.2 assists/game, which is tied for 5th best in the state.

Gunn serves as captain and outside hitter with a 3.2 kills/set average, which ranks Top 20 (t.17) in Class 2A.  She has been a two-time All-District player and was the team's 2021 Offensive Player of the Year. A rare 3-sport athlete, Gunn was named the OCP Female Athlete of the Year for the 2021-22 school year as she played basketball and ran track after the volleyball season.

The "Fab 5" have done a great job of leading this team through a challenging season where much of it has been played without the full opening season roster. Now, they sit in position to accomplish a team goal of advancing to the district championship game, winning district and advancing to the state tournament.

Post-Hurricane Ian Schedule Changes To Start Month Of October

Orlando, Fla --

Orlando Christian Prep, along with other Central Florida schools, is trying to find normalcy after Hurricane Ian passed through Central Florida last week leaving destruction to property and buildings, damages to trees, flooding and power outages for hundreds of thousands of residents. 

Many athletic events scheduled from the middle to end of the week were postponed or canceled, with athletic departments working to determine what could be rescheduled as the fall sports calendar nears the final few regular season weeks for sports other than football. OCP volleyball and football teams were affected as multiple volleyball matches and a district football game were postponed.


As the first week of October begins, the biggest game of the 2022 OCP Football season to date kicks off the week. OCP will travel to district foe TFA (First Academy-Orlando) on Monday night in a game that will most likely decide the district champion.

Currently, OCP is unbeaten (2-0) in their two district matches against Orangewood (50-0) and Foundation Academy (57-14). TFA is unbeaten on the season with a 1-0 district record after defeating Orangewood 22-8. With a win, OCP will control their own destiny heading into the final district game against Trinity Prep.

Last year, these teams played a Monday night game that was also postponed due to weather. Heavy rains in the 24 hours leading up to the Friday night game affected field conditions enough at Warrior field that athletic directors from OCP and TFA agreed to move the game to TFA, which has field turf. OCP defeated TFA 14-7 on a beautiful Monday evening to start what would be an 11-game winning streak, hosting multiple playoff games, a Regional Championship and a state semifinal game.
