Terrapins keep rolling in invitational

Tampa Prep builds on its Berkeley Premier win, notching three wins to open the Tampa Bay Invitational.

Published October 9, 2004

TAMPA - A week after Tampa Prep won the Berkeley Premier Volleyball Tournament, the Terrapins maintained the winning trend with a 3-0 mark on the first day of the 16-team Tampa Bay Invitational.

The Terrapins (13-3, No. 1 in Class 2A) didn't drop a game on Friday, defeating Martin County (25-20, 25-21), Durant (25-17, 25-19) and Pelham (25-15, 25-13).

"(The Pelham) match is the best we've played thus far," Tampa Prep coach Mike Flynn said.

"(Against Pelham) we became a better volleyball team. The day's previous two matches weren't that great."

In other action, Plant and Berkeley Prep also went 3-0.

The Panthers defeated Jacksonville Bishop Kenny, Fort Meyers Bishop Verot and Clearwater, which came in as the top seed in Plant's pool. The Tornadoes went 2-1 but could rally in today's final rounds.

"Plant was a tough team and I felt that we made more mistakes," Clearwater coach Lynn Hallmark said.

"But we learned from this. We have some sophomores and juniors who gained some good experience."

Defending Class A champion Bayshore Christian went 2-1 while the only other bay entries, Durant and Academy of the Holy Names, head into today's action 1-2 and 0-3, respectively.

The championship bracket semifinals will be held at 2:45 p.m. and the final begins at 6:30.
