Preps

Buccaneers roll in opener

Berkeley Prep sweeps Winter Park Trinity Prep to start regional action.

TAMPA - Berkeley Prep was head and shoulders above its competition Thursday night - literally.

The Buccaneers - bigger, taller and more athletic at virtually every position - easily defeated Winter Park Trinity Prep 25-11, 25-14 and 25-20 in the opening contest of Class 2A regional play, moving a step closer to defending their state title.

"I thought it was a real solid performance," Berkeley Prep coach Randy Dagostino said. "I thought our ball control was really solid and we had a very good defense."

It was so good that Trinity Prep managed just two service points in the first set and 17 for the match.

Berkeley Prep scored at will, tallying at least 14 service points in each set and pulling away on runs of 11 and seven straight points.

Courtney Cohen led the Buccaneers. Cohen, an intimidating force in the middle, recorded nine kills, including a decisive tally that ended, both on the scoreboard and emotionally, a Trinity Prep rally in the third game.

"Courtney, she and (setter) Kate Parker make a wonderful team," Dagostino said. "She controls the middle of the net. It opens up so much for everyone else."

Jessica Glover, Anne Miller and Janet Okogbaa each recorded five or more kills. Miller, Nicole Sanders and Lacey Raymond each had two aces in the victory.
