CHEN's fifth-ranked girls volleyball team polished off a 16-0 regular season with last night's 25-10, 25-18, 26-24 victory over St. Paul's.

The team of home-schooled students got 13 kills from Roberta Holehouse, 11 from Claire Sheldon and seven from Amanda Rhein - most on sets from Brittany Umetin, who finished with 31 assists.

St. Paul's got five kills each from Genna Jerrard and Jillian Unitas and 21 assists from Blake Hargest, but Gators coach Kelli Wilkinson said it took a while to adjust to the quick pace of the Bravehearts' game.

"They're used to that level of play from the sixth grade and they play club ball. They have a quick offense, a strong offense, and such a disciplined defense," said Wilkinson, whose team finished its regular season 10-8 heading into next week's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference tournament.

The Bravehearts, who are based in Baltimore County and play an independent schedule, will travel to Omaha, Neb., next week for the National Christian Home School Athletic Association Tournament, an event they won in their most recent appearance in 2001.

No. 2 Centennial 3, River Hill 0: The host Eagles (13-0) received 11 kills from Alana Eller and 10 from Margot Phelan to down the Hawks, 25-12, 25-19, 25-18.

No. 6 South River 3, Arundel 0: Janna Wojtech, Jill Hodges and Abigail McNair scored second-half goals as the host Seahawks (12-3) rebounded from a sluggish start to post the win over the Wildcats in the quarterfinals of the Class 4A East Regional playoffs.

South River advanced to the regional semifinals where it will face Broadneck, a team the Seahawks needed overtime to beat during the regular season.
