Centennial volleyball player Christin Anderson, a middle hitter, made her mark in the sport this season, helping to lead her team to its 14th state 3A championship, but she and her coach, Larry Schofield, both say volleyball was not her first love. "She was a dyed-in-the-wool basketball player," said Schofield. "But she made two giant leaps forward during the offseason while playing club volleyball and attending camps, and she has totally changed. She's now 90 percent a volleyball player and 10 percent basketball."

When Mount de Sales volleyball coach Kenny Mills saw his team ranked No. 2 in preseason, he was pleased but surprised. "I expected we might be ranked in the top 10, but I was not expecting No. 2," he said. "Instead of looking at it as pressure, we look at it as something we have to live up to." The players were just as surprised. "When they heard about it, they were shocked," Mills said. "The seniors, they're up for the challenge." The Sailors were 3-0 after defeating No. 6 Archbishop Spalding last night in four sets and primed for a run at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title.

With eight new players on the roster, however, the Lions spent the bulk of the preseason trying to regain their confidence.

The word is already out about St. Mary's College freshman middle hitter Rebecca Tursell around the Capital Athletic Conference. "A couple of the teams we've been matched up against, after the first match you can hear the coach yell, `Where's No. 7, find No. 7,' " said Tursell, who was an All-Howard County selection at Glenelg. The 5-foot-10 Tursell has pumped new life into a volleyball program that recorded only six match victories last season and has already bolted to a 15-13 start. Tursell has been a freshman sensation since her first day on the court for St. Mary's, leading the CAC in hitting percentage (.393)

1 Centennial -- What can a team that went 22-1 and won its third straight 3A state championship do for an encore? How about winning a fourth title?

Former assistant Mike Bossom takes over a team that returns powerful 6-foot-1 middle hitter Krisha Svehla and outside hitters Kelly and Jen West. Centennial also has an experienced setter in Sheri Kujawa.
