TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The defending Class 6A state champion Leon Lions are ready to defend their crown.

Leon’s title defense starts at home against Fleming Island, a team that went 14-7. The Lions ran through the 2020 season without dropping a match despite playing only seven matches.

The Lions do have home-court advantage but feel they are at a disadvantage because of playing in limited contests.

“Work hard and we have to push harder than other teams because we were set back,” senior outside hitter Macy Maxwell said. “Other teams in our Class 6A, they got to have more time and more games than us and practices. So we are a little bit behind, but we just have to work hard and push forward.”

Leon’s match with Fleming Island is at Leon High School Wednesday at 7 p.m.
