One of the area's best volleyball programs has announced a change in its coaching staff for next year, but the replacement will be well known to area volleyball fans. Larry Schofield, the varsity coach at Centennial, will step down after leading the program for seven years. He will be replaced by Mike Bossom, who coached at Centennial from 1994 to 2005, and won eight state titles at the school. Bossom is leaving Goucher College, where he was the head volleyball coach. “I just felt like my mental state wasn't where it needed to be,” Schofield said.

Centennial volleyball coach Mike Bossom leaves next Thursday for the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games in Australia, where he will coach the U.S. men's standing disabled volleyball team. "It should be a great experience," said Bossom, who has coached the team for three years and said this year's squad is ranked No. 2 in the world behind Poland. The team practiced the past two weekends at the Columbia Volleyball House. The Paralympic Games will be held Oct. 18-29 at the same venues as the Olympics.

They sit on the bench and wait for their turn.The second string?"I don't think of them as my second unit," Centennial coach Mike Bossom said. "I feel comfortable putting them in for any of my starters. They are the future of the program."For the majority of matches this season, Bossom has sat down most of his starters after the Eagles have won two games. Such was the case yesterday in top-ranked Centennial's 15-9, 15-5, 15-5 victory over host Glenelg, and it was the performance from his underclassmen that Bossom was most pleased about.

Player of the YearBriana Zolak, Centennial, senior, hitter: "There was pressure on her to be the leader, the one everybody looked at, and she never shrank back from that or said she didn't want it," said Centennial coach Mike Bossom. "She met the challenge and I think exceeded some people's expectations." Zolak pushes herself hard to be the best, and rarely is satisfied with everything she does in a match. But make no mistake, Zolak does a lot of things well. "She's one of the most complete players I've coached," said Bossom, who has seen many talented players in his four seasons at the Ellicott City school.

She also scrambled around the court to ring up 243 digs, and average of 4 per game. A master of the jump serve, Phelan recorded 63 aces and a serving percentage of .870.

On the high school level, playing for Howard County's Centennial volleyball team is the equivalent of wearing the New York Yankees pinstripes in major-league baseball. Centennial has won more state volleyball titles (10) than any other Maryland school - five of them in a row - with no end in sight. For Southern California native Kelsey Tyree, watching Centennial play was love at first sight. "As an eighth-grader, I saw Centennial play, and right then and there, my ultimate goal was to wear that jersey and play for that team," said Tyree, a 6-foot-2 senior hitter.

The boys state basketball semifinals and finals, which have been played at Cole Field House since 1956, are expected to move into the $108 million Comcast Center next year. "We have every intention of going and they [Maryland officials] have told us they would love to have us," said Ned Sparks, executive director of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association. Sparks said the only roadblock would be the cost. "We realize there might be a slight increase because of the new facility," Sparks said, "and we know they're trying to accommodate us."

Centennial's volleyball team has gone 39-1 over the past two seasons, and there are a number of reasons to believe it could continue that kind of dominance. There's All-Metro hitter Michelle Grosso, who is 5 feet 11 and talks about winning as continuing "to do our thing." There's Tehya Mockapetris, who stuns opponents with her powerful hitting. She is only 5-3 but makes up for it with a 28 1/2 -inch vertical leap. There's Kristina Swan, a senior setter who is as strategic as she is skillful, and Kasey Quinn, whose versatility as a hitter and defensive specialist defines Centennial's depth.

COLLEGE PARK -- Senior hitter Sarah Gregorini said, "Centennial prides itself in its depth," and it showed last night in more ways than one at Ritchie Coliseum as the top-ranked Eagles swept second-year Huntingtown of Calvert County, 25-14, 25-22, 25-21, to repeat as Class 3A state volleyball champions. Centennial (19-1) showed deep scoring ability, a deep defense and even got a spark from a recent JV call-up in the third game to further a program that has gone deeper with its coach, Mike Bossom, than any other in state history.

Centennial volleyball coach Michael Bossom believes depth has been a key to his team's success this season. Last night, at least, that depth saved the Eagles. Trailing late in the third game of a tied match against third-ranked Glenelg, the No. 2 Eagles rallied to win. They then took the fourth game, as well, in a 25-11, 23-25, 25-19, 25-22 victory for the Howard County championship before a rowdy home crowd in Ellicott City. "It feels awesome" to win the title, said senior hitter Margot Phelan.
