Beating the best?
Today's Berkeley Premier, arguably the year's biggest regular-season volleyball tournament, begins with a bang as the host Bucs No.2 in the state take on perennial Kentucky power Mercy Academy (No. 9 in country) at 3 p.m. at the University of Tampa. Mercy (20-2) is one of three nationally ranked teams along with nine state-ranked teams in the 16-team draw, ending with Saturday's 6 p.m. title game. Other locals are defending state champ Plant, Tampa Prep, Durant and the Academy of the Holy Names.
Volleyball coach to leave AHN
Academy of the Holy Names volleyball coach Doug Chinchar said this will be his last season as the school's coach. Chinchar, who played volleyball at Ohio State, is in his eighth season at AHN (129-55). Chinchar, 37, who works full time at a Tampa drug-testing company, said he wants to spend more time with his 2-year-old daughter, Naomi. "It was a hard, hard, hard decision."

Sickles' secret weapon, senior Corey Page, averages 44 yards per punt (41 net). Page, who has booted all but three kickoffs into the end zone, is a big reason the Gryphons (3-1) typically win the field-position battle. He has offers from Hofstra and Lafayette.
6.4 Yards per carry for Gaither tailback Jarvis Giles, the county's leading rusher at 638 through four games. The junior could be extra fast tonight on Jesuit's new synthetic turf. "He's extremely quick," Jesuit coach Joe Ross said. "Hopefully the turf will slow him a tick."
