Published October 29, 2004

TAMPA - In an explosive display of offensive skills, Bayshore Christian turned back All Saints' Academy of Winter Haven in less than an hour to advance to the semifinals in Class A, Region 2.

Winning 25-14, 25-11 and 25-8, the the defending Class A champion Faith Warriors ran their season record to 20-5, all losses coming to teams in higher classifications.

Bayshore Christian coach Melanie Humenansky was pleased with the play of her team.

"We played a solid match tonight," Humenansky said. "They were relaxed and they had fun. I was especially pleased with the leadership we received from our two captains, Adrian Mullaney and Stevi Cherry. They have a way of keeping all of our players in the game." All Saints' Academy coach Lashawndria Green said her team should have been more aggressive.

"They (Bayshore Christian) are a very talented team but I thought we'd give them a better match."

After running off the first five points of the first game, Bayshore Christian saw All Saints' creep within one point at 7-6, then Cherry and Christine Williamson took over and built a lead that would not be challenged. Cherry and Sarah Weiler led their team with eight kills each, while Williamson finished with six.

"I thought we played well tonight and I think we are prepared to move on to the next level," said Cherry. "We played strong and any mistakes we made we will learn from." Junior Jenny Meglie paced All Saints' Academy with five kills and led her team to a short-lived 2-0 lead in Game 2 before Bayshore Christian fought back and ran off seven unanswered points.

Senior Mandy Stokes had 21 assists for the winners, and Mullaney added five digs and six aces.
