Before Jaime Pirotte could emerge as Severna Park's No. 1 setter, and one of the premier volleyball players in the county, she first had to stop chasing a ghost.The haunting image was that of her older sister, Stacy, who manned the same position at Severna Park for three years before receiving a volleyball scholarship to Jacksonville University after the 1989 season. Stacy was an All-County performer as a junior, and the metro area's Player of the Year as a senior."Those are pretty big shoes to fill," said Severna Park coach Tim Dunbar.

Severna Park's proud tradition of outstanding volleyball setters goes back to 1987, Tim Dunbar's first year as varsity coach.There was Jill Moore, a Baltimore Sun Co-Athlete of the Year. And there were the Pirotte sisters -- Stacy, a two-year starter, and Jaime, who started from 1990 through last year. Both were All-Metro selections.Ann Bochniak would have had her moment, too, but she moved with her family to Georgia after her sophomore year and achieved All-State status there."We have a history of successful setters, but Susan doesn't have to fill anyone's shoes," Dunbar said.

Sophomore setter Jaime Pirotte has been of great service to her Severna Park volleyball teammates this season.The unbeaten Falcons' 15-11, 16-14, 15-11 victory over previously unbeaten Broadneck on Friday night was a good example.Against the Bruins, Pirotte was a perfect 25-for-25 serving with seven aces and had 13 assists (passes that lead to kills for points or side-outs). She came into the game serving a team-leading 92 percent with 19 aces, and the game raised her assist total to 133."

Catonsville's Karla Uttenreither was mistakenly identified in yesterday's editions featuring the All-Metro girls volleyball team.* COACH OF THE YEAR: Bill Shook, Centennial -- Shook, who in nine years has built one of the state's premier programs, gets the nod for pushing the Eagles to overcome the weight of great expectations. Coming off an undefeated, state-title season and returning most of their starters, the Eagles were a safe bet to repeat. But they actually got better. After losing four games last year, Centennial went 66-3 this season, which included a 12-game sweep over six opponents in the North Caroline Bulldog tournament.

Given a choice, Broadneck volleyball coach Glenn Braine would have preferred to meet Severna Park later in the season, after his younger players had gained some valuable experience.Instead, his Bruins learned a valuable lesson; Taking the first game from Severna Park, even in the most dominating fashion, doesn't ensure a victory.The visiting Falcons shook off an early drubbing -- perhaps their worst ever -- to rally past Broadneck, 0-15, 15-6, 15-6, 15-9 yesterday.Julie Kasprzak, a 5-foot-9 junior making her first start, had 10 kills and was 15 of 16 serving with two aces to lead top-ranked Severna Park (3-0)

Bee Manley obviously wasn't making a fashion statement yesterday with the cows that adorned her T-shirt, sneakers and jewelry.Instead, the first-year Anne Arundel Community College volleyball coach wanted to remind her players that C-O-W, the mascot chosen for this particular game, stood for "Crushing and Outwitting Women."The Pioneers then went out and utterly frustrated Manley with another sluggish start, this time against a visiting Essex Community College team that was 11-2 overall and 4-0 in the JuCo Conference.

Like heavyweights in a championship fight, the Severna Park and Northern volleyball squads will take center court at Catonsville Community College tomorrow night.There, they'll slug it out for the Class4A state title."I couldn't think of a better matchup," Northern coach Cheryl Lord said of the 7:30 p.m. match. "The teams are similar, and probably the biggest similarity is hitting. Both teams can hit big and with a lot of control."Lord's third-seeded Patriots of Calvert County (17-0) return four senior starters and eight players overall from last year's Class 3A state champion squad.

The only time Severna Park's volleyball team had to go five games this season was against Laurel, its opponent in today's Class 4A state semifinal at Montgomery County's Watkins Mill.The Sept. 19 match was the second of the season for both the Falcons and the Spartans. Severna Park won, 15-8, 15-9, 10-15, 14-16, 15-4, but that was a long time ago, say the coaches of both teams."It was early in the season and I was subbing frequently because we were still developing our offensive attack," said Severna Park coach Tim Dunbar, whose Falcons (17-0)
