Senior outside hitters Connie Pikounis and Maggie Serkes had 15 kills each to lift No. 10 Mount Hebron to a 24-26, 25-22, 25-16, 16-25, 15-7 victory over No. 15 Atholton in Columbia last night.

Serkes also earned four aces, Pikounis recorded three aces, and sophomore setter Anna Wiggs contributed 31 assists as the visiting Vikings improved to 3-2 overall and 2-2 in Howard County.

"After we lost [a five-game match] to Reservoir [on Sept. 20], everyone was upset," Pikounis said. "I think that taught us the lesson to push harder for what you want and to come out strong in the fifth game."

Added Serkes: "I would say it's a good sign that we have the potential to compete with better teams. ... We really brought it together as a team, and we showed a lot of heart."

Junior middle hitter Stephanie Sharp paced the Raiders with eight kills, four aces and three blocks, but Atholton (3-2 overall, 3-1 Howard County) dropped its first match to a county opponent. The loss ended a three-match winning streak that included victories over then-No. 10 River Hill and No. 8 Reservoir.


No. 7 Curley 39, St. Paul's 29: The Friars (4-1) dominated on the ground with 484 yards rushing.

Derrick Young had 17 carries for 151 yards and three touchdowns, Glenn Williams had 23 carries for 191 yards and one touchdown, and Raymond Ridgeway gained 97 yards on 10 carries and scored two TDs.

Despite a strong game from Jason Caldwell, who rushed for 124 yards and one touchdown and caught three passes for 77 yards, host St. Paul's dropped to 2-2.
