Tampa Prep volleyball gaining momentum
By KEITH NIEBUHR
Published October 10, 2007
Don't be deceived by Tampa Prep's record.
The Terrapins seem to be peaking at just the right time.
Tampa Prep defeated Indian Rocks Christian 25-11, 25-17, 25-20 Tuesday night at home, playing one of its best matches this year in the process. Indian Rocks had defeated the Terps earlier this season.
"This is a good win," Tampa Prep coach Mike Flynn said.
Tampa Prep is just 10-9, but Tuesday's win comes after the Terps went 3-2 against strong competition last weekend at the Tampa Bay Invitational.
Tampa Prep was led by libero Lauren LeVine (14 digs), defensive specialist Anna Dalence (12 digs), middle blocker Dana Malinowski (nine kills, four blocks) and setter Caroline Dillabough (29 assists).
"They've been working hard," Flynn said. "They really were focused tonight. Our success came from our management and defense."
Durant d. Lakeland
14-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-20
At Durant, the Cougars not only improved to 14-5 but avenged an early season loss. Now, they sit alone in first in the Class 6A, District 8 standing, and with a win Thursday at Sarasota will clinch the top seed for the upcoming district tournament.
"We started off rough, but then we pulled together," Cougars coach Dawn Hough said. "We played as a team. The offense was completely spread around."
Durant was led by middle blocker Aly Anzalone (11 kills, eight digs, two blocks two aces), outside hitter Stephanie Eukovich (15 digs, nine kills, two aces) and setter Alexa Donini (35 assists, 10 digs, four aces).
Plant 161, King 175
At Temple Terrace, King senior Chris Biuso shot 2-under-par 34 to earn medalist honors, but it was Plant that came away with the win. The Panthers (10-2) were led by Cory Castillo, who shot 37. Tyler Hagan added 40.
Biuso has three straight rounds under par.
Tuesday's scored dropped his season average just below 36.
He birdied two holes and made seven pars.
"He's hitting the ball very solid right now and he's playing with a lot of confidence," King coach Barrett Zebos said.
King fell to 7-4.
Berkeley Prep 153,
St. Pete Catholic 154
At the Eagles, Blake Morris shot 37 and made a 10-footer on the last hole for par as the Bucs improved to 9-3.
"This was huge," Berkeley Prep coach Tom Shea said. "We played St. Pete Catholic earlier this year and we improved by 16 strokes. It was a great day."
Austin Suarez and R.J. Campbell each shot 38 for the Bucs.
It was Berkeley Prep's second-best score this season.
Sickles 170, Durant 176
At River Hills, behind A.J. Kuhn and Addison Murphy, who each shot 41, Sickles (6-8) won. Durant (6-7) got strong play from John Conner, who shot 42.
Sickles 177, Durant 184
At River Hills, Alex Milan and Amanda Bair each shot even-par 36 to pace Sickles (10-2). Durant was led by Amy West, who shot 38 less than a week after carding 3-under 33.
Durant (10-2) played without No. 2 Heather Wengyn, who is injured.
"Alex and Amanda played really, really well today," Sickles coach Mark Mann said. "At the beginning of the season I said I thought we had the best 1-2 combination in the county. And I stand by that now."
Berkeley Prep 173,
At the Eagles, the Bucs improved to 8-1 behind the play of Kim Carpenter and Lindsey Weiss, both of whom carded rounds of 41. The score was a season best for Weiss, a sophomore.
